A Milestone for ADK A&E
Today’s edition of ADK A&E’s e-News is #250!
Wow—even to us it doesn’t seem like we could already be at that milestone! But here we are, growing rapidly as we share all the the fabulous happenings in the Adirondack arts and entertainment community with a ever wider audience.
It’s perhaps appropriate that this #250 is the longest edition of ADK A&E e-News yet! Future editions won’t be as long as this one—it’s the “high season” for the arts and entertainment community just now—but it’s an indication of just how lively the ADK arts and entertainment scene is.
There are even more listings on the Event calendar so remember to check it out regularly; new items are entered every day. Just go to the website at Adirondack A&E and look at the upper left for “Events.” You can sort the offerings by category and even arrange how you view them.
Now we’re asking you to help us grow even more and reach everyone with an interest in the Adirondack arts and entertainment community.
It’s easy: just share this #250 ADK A&E with anyone you think may be interested. You can use the “FORWARD” button at the top of each edition or use your email server’s forward function.
Or, you can share the web address above with anyone you think might appreciate learning about us. There’s a button on the website for folks to sign up if interested (we’ll never sign anyone up for the e-News without their permission so they must do it)
And remember, we always welcome your feedback.
Thank you for helping us get the word out!

Summer Camps at ADK ArtRise
Our summer camps were so successful last year that we have decided to double our offerings this year!
We will be running one camp in the morning and one in the afternoon! Please note the age ranges for each camp, as they are little different this year. Camps that are repeated in the morning and in the afternoon will run the same projects, so it is not advisable to sign up the same child for both.
Each camp will include programing from Tuesday to Friday
for a two and a half hour block.
Morning: 9 am to 11:30 am
Afternoon: 1 pm to 3:30 pm
Check out the classes HERE.

Adirondack Jazz Repertoire Ensemble
Friday, July 7, 7 pm
An outstanding eight-piece ensemble from the Adirondack Jazz Orchestra brings the excitement of Dixieland, blues, bebop, funk and contemporary jazz to the Sembrich lakeshore.
The Adirondack Jazz Orchestra was founded in 2003 under the musical direction of trumpeter Matthew Pray. Its sole purpose was to bring together some of the Adirondack’s finest musicians in a big band setting. Members of the group consist of high school music educators, college professors, and college students all who share an interest in performing on a regular basis.
The group plays a wide variety of the Big Band Genre, from standard big band arrangements to original compositions. Each month, the group performs a line-up of charts from Glenn Miller, Buddy Rich, Charles Mingus, Thad Jones, Maynard Ferguson and arrangements written by some of the band’s members.
