The Lake George Music Festival in upstate New York has added a “Sounds of our Time” concert series this summer, created by Roger Kalia, the festival’s music director and co-founder. The series explores connections that cross musical genres, and the first installment will feature musicians Logan Light and Alex Seaver, who perform progressive and cinematic electronic dance music as the duo Mako. An August 24 concert at Lake George’s Shepard Park Amphitheater will feature large chamber ensembles performing minimalist music inspired by Mako’s sound and style. Mako will play a solo set of original compositions, and the concert will end with a collaboration between Mako and chamber orchestra performing works arranged by Alex Seaver. Mako will be in residence for the duration of the festival from August 15 to 25, during which they will also perform an additional solo concert on August 19 of original music at King Neptunes Nightclub in Lake George. The festival will conclude on August 25 with Roger Kalia leading the full Lake George Music Festival Symphony Orchestra in Kodaly’s Dances of Galanta and Brahms’s Symphony No. 1, followed by a fireworks display over Lake George.
