ART ATTACKS! Be on the lookout for our revolutionary public outreach series called "ART ATTACKS!” Performing impromptu shows in unconventional venues such as restaurants, shops, and night clubs, our musicians will literally 'take to the streets,' and bring classical music to the everyday lives of Lake George community members and visitors. Led by former Detroit Symphony Orchestra bassist Rick Robinson (Mr. CutTime), we're on a mission to take classical music OFF the pedestal of the concert hall, to refresh and share this powerful inspiration with curious music lovers and colleagues. It's time to cut loose with classical!
