"Up Up and Away" by Pop composer Jimmy Webb came to the top of the charts in 1967 with the 5th Dimension's tight harmonies and positive, uplifiting rhythms. Listen to LeGroove's rendition of Jimmy Webb's tune, grab a little bit of that 60s enegry and pull it into the new millenium to support the continuation of professionally performed classical music that lifts us up in the Adirondacks every week. Meet the musicians of the Lake Placid Sinfonietta, hear their stories, and learn why they return each summer and why their personal artistic growth happens in the Adirondacks in ways it cannot happen elsewhere.
Are you new to the area and concerned about going to a "gala"? Each organization is different, and these events can be formal. If it is fun for you to dress to the nines to attend please go for it, many do! If you've been on the mountain or the lake all day and a barely business casual outfit is what you can manage, that is OK too. It is summer, we have the best musicians right here in our midst making extraordinary music and this is the night to celebrate what they do. It is about the community and support, not the fashion, please join us, we would love to meet you!
