Concerts by the Lake, a Glensheen tradition of giving back

Once again, the Glensheen mansion on the historic Congdon estate will be opening up its grounds for its FREE Concerts by the Lake series. Due to its popularity, our series of musical Wednesday evenings have spilled out of July and now include the first two Wednesdays of August as well.

All are invited to enjoy the gardens and grounds opening at 6 p.m. every Wednesday starting July 3rd on through August 14th. Music starts at 7 p.m.

"It's makes for a special summer evening by the lakeshore enjoying wonderful local artists," says Beth Peterson, Glensheen's Signature Events Manager. She advises families to bring chairs, blankets – even a picnic dinner – and to come early enough to wander the blooming gardens and grounds.

Concert Lineup
July 3 - Sentimental Journey, Big Band
July 10 – Breanne Marie and Evan Tepler, Country Vocal and Guitar
July 17 - The Getarounds, Folk Fiddle and Violin
