Caroga Lake Music Festival at the Arkell Museum & Canajoharie Library

The Caroga Lake Music Festival is an annual summer concert series featuring young artists from the world's premiere conservatories that takes place in the Adirondacks, and we are thrilled to welcome them back for a performance in Canajoharie again this year.

Their multi-genre programming makes this festival unique and exciting; from classical music to contemporary music and from small ensembles to orchestras. The festival features well-established young instrumentalists as well as vocalists such as Alyson Stoner and Cara Samantha. Their award-winning artistic director and founder, Kyle Barrett Price, a resident of Worthington, had vacationed with his family at the Caroga Lake house of his Grandmother (Joyce Barrett) since he was an infant. Price often mentioned the idea of creating a chamber music festival in the area. This idea became a reality in the summer of 2012, and the Caroga Lake Music Festival is now celebrating its 6th season.

Admission to the concert is free, although donations are welcome. For more information, please contact Curator of Education & Public Engagement Jenna Peterson Riley at jriley@arkellmusem.org or call (518) 673 2314 x 113.
