LUBEC — SummerKeys, A Music Vacation in Lubec, soon will open its doors for the 27th summer to musicians, artists and students from near and far. There will be more than a dozen instrumental programs to offer to adults of all ability levels, with no audition or entrance requirements. Throughout the summer, music courses are led by accomplished faculty in: piano, jazz piano, music composition, voice, violin, viola, cello, classical guitar, mandolin, fiddle, Celtic harp, flute, clarinet, oboe and trumpet. There also are courses in the arts to include: photography, creative writing and cabaret. Visit the website for faculty biographies.

This year’s highlights include a concert performance in August of a new work, “Summer Music” composed by Down East resident, John Newell. David Alpher and Jennie Litt from NYC will be back by popular demand for cabaret classes and will perform in July and we will again host our newest jazz musician, Sebastien Ammann in August. Our renowned team of Frank van Riper and Judy Goodman will again offer photography classes. As with our music classes, art workshops are open to all instructional levels – novice to expert – with no auditions or prior experience required!

The Mary Potterton Memorial Concert Series will be entertaining the Down East community throughout the summer. This series of 12 concerts, featuring the widely acclaimed talent of the SummerKeys faculty, are presented weekly at 7:30 p.m. Wednesdays at the Lubec Congregational Christian Church. Intermission refreshments are hosted by local businesses. All concerts are free and open to the public. Piano tuning donations are graciously accepted.
