The Sebago-Long Lake Music Festival is an organization devoted to presenting and promoting high-quality chamber music performances in the Lake Region of Western Maine. Founded in 1972 by bassoonist Homer Pence and other professional musicians who summered in the region, and administered by a board of local volunteers, SLLMF has grown into a well-known and popular institution. Continuity has been maintained since the early years through the ongoing involvement of a core group of musicians. Mihae Lee, pianist with the festival for the past 20 years and Artistic Director of the Essex Winter Series in Connecticut, is the new Music Director. Every summer SLLMF presents a 5-week series of chamber music concerts at the Deertrees Theatre in Harrison, Maine. This series is held on Tuesday evenings during the last three weeks of July and the first two weeks of August.
