Kneisel Hall returns to Southwest Harbor

SOUTHWEST HARBOR — A Kneisel Hall chamber concert will be hosted by the Southwest Harbor Public Library at St. John Church on Thursday, July 21, at 7 p.m.

This is a wonderful opportunity to hear one of the most significant chamber music programs in the country and to see students perform who are about to move onto major orchestras and chamber groups.

The concert is free, a gift to the community. It will feature several different ensembles performing works by Beethoven, Mozart, Dvorak and other well-loved composers.

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. Call the library at 244-7065.
