Experience Music: Each year The Sembrich presents a summer festival including live concerts, films, children's programming, and lectures featuring world-class musicians. The Sembrich's popular World Music Wednesday series features inspired multicultural lakeside performances. Indoor events are held within the intimate setting of the studio museum, a superb venue with excellent acoustics.
Experience History: Step back a century into America's "Gilded Age" in The Sembrich's museum. Listed on the National Historic Register, The Sembrich was once part of the summer estate of Polish opera singer Marcella Sembrich (1858-1935), a leading prima donna at The Metropolitan Opera and founding member of the voice faculties for The Julliard School and The Curtis Institute of Music.
Upon her passing, Sembrich's lakeside teaching studio was transformed into a museum preserving her legacy. The museum contains memorabilia of her distinguished career, with accolades from colleagues including Brahms, Puccini, and Verdi. Also featured are a working Victrola, Sembrich's original Steinway piano, opera costumes, art, furniture, photographs and tributes.
Experience Nature: Stroll along pristine shoreline paths on 4.5 acres and enjoy picturesque views of the Adirondack Mountains and Lake George, the "Queen of American Lakes." Bring family and friends and enjoy a lakeside lunch beneath the majestic pines on secluded Hydrangea Bay. Carry-in carry-out picnicking is welcomed and encouraged.
