Q: Briefly Describe The Sembrich

The Sembrich, described by many as a unique cultural experience, offers a Summer Music and Film Festival featuring a variety of music, an opera museum, and nature park. It was founded in 1940 to highlight the accomplishments of distinguished Polish-American soprano Marcella Sembrich, a star of the Golden Age of Opera, who taught on the shores of Lake George.

Q: What do you offer for visitors?

The Sembrich offers guests the opportunity to experience music, history, and nature all on the shores of Lake George. There is something for everyone. If you enjoy live music (classical, world, contemporary, and more), film, or the beauty of the Adirondacks, The Sembrich is for you!

Q. How did the museum get started?

The Sembrich was founded in 1940 by Marcella Sembrich’s daughter-in-law, Juliette de Coppet Stengel. We have been in operation since, preserving our extensive collection and expanding program offerings and activities.
