In celebration of the Acadia Centennial, the 2016 Bar Harbor Music Festival’s 50th Anniversary Season will feature the world premieres of two compositions commissioned by the Bar Harbor Music Festival and inspired by Acadia National Park.

Francis Fortier will conduct the Bar Harbor Festival String Orchestra at the Festival Gala on Sunday, July 31 at the Bar Harbor Club. Featured will be “Songs of the Sky” by Edmund Cionek, composer-in-residence at the Bar Harbor Music Festival. This work will pair Native American vocal soloist George Neptune with the string orchestra. The piece will premiere earlier in the week, at the 44th Annual Acadia National Park Outdoor Concert at Blackwoods Campground.

The Festival Gala includes an optional pre-concert buffet dinner.
