Bay Chamber Concerts' Screen Door Festival is a five-day musical extravaganza along one of the most scenic coastlines in the world. It features fresh performances by world-renowned musicians, presented in intimate venues, all in a distinctly relaxed summer-in-Maine atmosphere. While you can get your Bach, Beethoven or Brahms fix at the festival, you will also experience novel, one-of-a-kind creative happenings — summer fun for audience and artists alike. Look out at Midcoast Maine’s craggy and rugged shoreline, a bay dotted with hundreds of uninhabited islands, and a crown of pined mountains. The musical venues are approachable, sometimes historic, and always New-England-beautiful.
The grand festival opening concert features many of the performers appearing throughout the week including vocalist Nicholas Phan, pianist Pedia Muzijevic, Altius String Quartet, The Westerlies brass quartet and Palaver Strings.
