Although best known for their summer festival, The Sembrich in Bolton Landing is more than live concerts, films, and children's programs. It's a cultural hub for the Lake George region, providing a connection to the arts, history, and nature.
A Performance Venue, History Museum & Nature Preserve All In One!
The Sembrich, named for legendary Polish-American coloratura soprano Marcella Sembrich, regularly turns out performances, exhibits, and educational opportunities centered in classical music from their picturesque location on the shores of Lake George. Come experience their unique blend of music, history, and nature!
Please note: The Sembrich's museum and grounds are currently closed while they complete their Studio Preservation Project. Patrons can look forward to visiting in the spring of 2022!
Each year The Sembrich hosts a world-class festival with revered musicians, films, and programs, all enjoyed by the shores of Lake George.
The Sembrich, which has been in continuous operation since 1937, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and houses a permanent collection of memorabilia from Marcella Sembrich (1858 to 1935), as well as rotating exhibits, online exhibits, and items on loans from other institutions.
Admission to the museum is free, although a $5 donation is suggested to support maintenance and preservation.
The Sembrich maintains and preserves 4.5 acres of the original estate, which includes nature trails and walking paths with views of the lake, islands, and surrounding mountains.
