A floating concert

The New Hampshire Music Festival is floating a fun July 13 concert. Festival musicians will take to a pontoon boat to share strains of music with people on and around Squam Lake.

The New Hampshire Music Festival launches its 70th summer of music in July with classical concerts, chamber concerts, special events for children and a popular brass ensemble performance aboard a pontoon boat on Squam Lake.

From its early days on Melody Island in Lake Winnipesaukee, the festival has grown to include a 75-plus member professional orchestra that delivers world-class performances of symphonic, choral and chamber music to New Hampshire.
