Screen Door Summer Music Festival

Wednesday, August 16 - Sunday, August 20

Screen Door is a five-day musical gathering along one of the most scenic coastlines in the world. It features fresh performances by world-renowned musicians, presented in intimate venues, all in a distinctly relaxed summer-in-Maine atmosphere.

Screen Door welcomes you to vibrant variety. While you can get your Bach, Beethoven or Brahms fix at the festival, you will also experience novel, one-of-a-kind creative happenings — summer fun for audience and artists alike. Cozy up with percussion groups, novel combinations of string instruments with guitars and electronics, projected visual art combined with physical performers and classical musicians, or dazzling harpsichord and theorbo players performing in a recently written chamber opera.

And Screen Door is a destination. Look out at Midcoast Maine’s craggy and rugged shoreline, a bay dotted with hundreds of uninhabited islands, and a crown of pined mountains. The musical venues are approachable, sometimes
historic, and always New-England-beautiful. And this high-note of summer is famously laid back: Leave stodgy behind, wander around with a glass of wine and introduce yourself to the young artists who just opened their doors to you.
