SummerFest 2013: The Livin's Easy 

Runs until Sunday, Aug. 11

The classic jams of summer rarely include a clarinet, but SummerFest 2013 is doing what it can to relax the hold more electronically enhanced pop tunes seem to have on the lazy days of summer.

For 10 days, Long Valley will be filled with the echoing chords of jazz and classical music as McCall and Cascade both play host to a series of concerts by locally and internationally recognized artists.

Concerts will be held Friday, Aug. 2-Sunday, Aug. 4, and Wednesday, Aug. 7-Sunday, Aug .11, at various locations around both towns, with performances beginning most evenings at 7:30 p.m. and a few afternoon concerts scheduled for the weekends.

Guest soloists including pianist Mei-Ting Sun, violinist Lindsay Deutsch and vocalists Nicole Greenidge Joseph and Cascade's own Adam Wade Duncan will perform individual concerts, as well as accompany the SummerFest orchestra in larger concerts. Venues include area churches, Shore Lodge and even Kelly's Whitewater Park in Cascade. The latter will be the scene of an evening of jazz with the Ted Rosenthal Trio on Wednesday, Aug. 7.

And since it always seems to be a struggle to get younger audiences interested in classical music, families can take advantage of a special free children's concert on Saturday, Aug. 10, in McCall, where future music fans can check out an instrument petting zoo following the performance.
