Sebago-Long Lakes Music Festival Recognizes Poster Design Winner
The Sebago-Long Lake Music Festival awarded a $200 prize to the winner of its 50th birthday poster design, Caroline Sheets, a senior at Oxford Hills Comprehensive High School in south Paris.
Virginia Valdes, the graphic design teacher, has been working with the festival and this project with her students for 17 years. The poster design is incorporated into a brochure to promote the festival and a program booklet distributed at the five concerts at the Deertrees Theatre, 156 Deertrees Road in Harrison.
Deertrees has been home to the festival for 30 years. This year’s concerts are scheduled for 7:30 p.m. on Tuesdays, July 12 through August 9.

Additionally, the festival has a tradition of bringing performances to the community for those new to chamber music or unable to access it easily. This year there are 14 outreach shows, eight community concerts in western and coastal Maine, and six repeat concerts in Maine, New Hampshire and Connecticut.
Community concerts are usually shorter performances and are usually free, donation only. The costs are partially covered by sponsorships. Repeat programs are sold-out concerts and are usually ticketed events.
