The Liederkranz Club and the Bar Harbor Music Festival have had close artistic ties over the past 56 years, with many of the Liederkranz Foundation Competition vocal and instrumental winners going on to perform at theAnnual Bar Harbor Music Festival.
The setting for the Bar Harbor Music Festival’s 57th Annual Gala Benefit Dinner will be the Club’s magnificent ballroom reflecting its old world warmth and charm.
Acclaimed by Phi Beta Baton as “…one of the nation’s proving grounds for gifted young artists,” the Bar Harbor Music Festival, founded by violinist Francis Fortier in 1967, has been acclaimed for its unique and pioneering work on behalf of young artists.
The festival has made a major contribution to the music world by advancing the careers of over 2,500 aspiring instrumentalists, singers, and composers. Coupled with our “Arts and Tourism” initiatives, it has provided a vital cultural and economic service for the community and visitors from all over the world.
The Festival’s outreach pro grams, such as the admission-free outdoor concerts in Acadia National Park, artist-in-residence programs in American schools, colleges, and universities, as well as Young Audience Concerts, have won new audiences for classical music and fostered music education.
The 2023 57th season, June 25-July 30, kept its promise for unique variety and extraordinary quality for which the festival has become known and beloved.
