A Unique Cultural Experience, Opera Museum & Music Venue
Experience the Golden Age of Opera at The Sembrich Museum, the former teaching studio of Metropolitan Opera prima donna Marcella Sembrich (1858-1935), a pianist, violinist, teacher, Polish patriot and benefactor who summered in Bolton Landing from 1922 to 1934. Here, Juilliard and Curtis Institute vocal students sought instruction from the acclaimed Sembrich.
Situated on a wooded peninsula on Lake George, the studio contains memorabilia of a distinguished international operatic career spanning more than 50 years. Visitors are invited to stroll along the shoreline paths and enjoy the pristine natural beauty of the "Queen of American Lakes" among the towering white pines. The Sembrich Museum property is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
Throughout the summer, The Sembrich presents a series of concerts, lectures, films and special events, including studio talks by distinguished music historians and recitals featuring some of today's finest performing artists.
