SOUTHWEST HARBOR — The Southwest Harbor Public Library will present its annual Kneisel Hall chamber concert on Thursday, July 26, at 7 p.m. The concert will be held at St. John’s Episcopal Church, across the street from the library.
“This is an opportunity to hear one of the most significant chamber music programs in the country and to see students perform who are about to move on to major orchestras and chamber groups,” event organizers said.
The concert will feature several different ensembles performing a variety of works. For some, this concert is the highlight of their summer musical season. The church is always filled with a very appreciative audience.
Kneisel Hall, located in Blue Hill, also offers a summer of festival concerts, which began in 1902 when Franz Kneisel, founder of the first professional string quartet in America, began bringing students to his Maine vacation home for summer study.
This performance is part of Kneisel Hall’s outreach programs. Contact the library at 244-7065 for more information.
