“The Lake George Arts Project consistently presents a diverse mix of performances at Shepard Park – whether it’s the Wednesday night summer concert series or the amazing fall jazz festival – artists are always of the highest quality. The fact that these are free and open to the public further emphasizes the essential role that the Arts Project plays in heightening the cultural climate of Lake George.”
- Peter Lesser, Executive Director, Empire State Performing Center (The Egg)

"The Summer Series is phenomenal and impacts the whole regional music scene. Bands play a Shepard Park show once and suddenly they have a Capital District following. This series is sophisticated, fun and consistently excellent. It's hard to imagine summer in Lake George without it!"
- Sarah Craig, Executive Director, Caffe Lena, Saratoga Springs, NY
