A message from LGAP Staff and Board of Directors about the cancellation of our Summer Concert Series for 2020:
The Lake George Arts Project is deeply committed to bringing people together to hear and see great music. Our Summer Music Series and Jazz at the Lake are not just two of our favorite events, the magic of these events is created by having amazing musicians perform with one of the most beautiful lakes in the country as the backdrop.
Keeping artists, the audience, staff, and volunteers safe is our top priority and is a responsibility we take seriously. Even if we were able to present in a traditional sense this year, it just wouldn’t be the same. So, through many conversations, and with the input of artists, stakeholders and the audience, Lake George Arts Project Staff and Board of Directors have decided to cancel our live Summer Concert Series and our Jazz at the Lake programs for this year. Like many of our friends in the community who plan and present events, this decision is an unprecedented one for us.
Even though we couldn’t gather for live music in Shepard Park this year, we did connect in the virtual world for our Jazz at the Lake Reimagined program! Every Thursday evening in September, 2020, we brought together amazing Jazz performers in a series of 4 live events that combined performances and discussions with the musicians. The concerts were recorded and you can view them HERE.
The Lake George Arts Project was founded to support artists and to provide them with opportunities to perform. We know, when all of this is over, we will be stronger; with new models for approaching programming and new ideas for how to best serve artists and our community. The opportunity to step back, take a deep breath and reimagine what we do, has given us a new tome of knowledge and experience that will help us do what we do even better.
We look forward to the future when it will be safe to gather, see, hear and dance to live music!
