Are there new artists every year?  

Many of the 20 Musicians in the Lake Placid Sinfonietta have been part of this professional chamber orchestra for many years.  However, there are always also a few new faces each season, along with outstanding Guest Soloists.  Music Director & Conductor Stuart Malina has been at the podium since 2019.  Check out our Artist’s Page for photos and bios!


Will there be food trucks or refreshments available?  

At our Symphony Series concerts at the Lake Placid Sinfonietta a concession is available pre-concert and a complementary meet-the-artists reception is offered after every performance with wine, non-alcoholic punch, and light hors d’oeuvres.  The Park Series, held in downtown Lake Placid does not offer food trucks, but there are many neighboring restaurants that offer take out.  Details on hospitality at these and other concerts can be found on the concert page of this website

Should I bring my own chairs?  

For the outdoor Park concerts many people prefer to bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit on.  There is some, but very limited existing bench or chair  seating at the site.   For concerts at the LPCA, all seating is reserved theater seating.

Are there bathrooms?

For the outdoor Park Concerts, public restrooms are available a short distance away from the park.  (Across the street opposite NBT Bank).  The LPCA offers complete restroom facilities.  

What time can I get there?

Concerts at the Park start at 7 PM and access to the park is available at all times.  At the LPCA we encourage people to arrive by 7:00 if possible for a 7:30 concert, earlier if ticket purchase has not been done in advance.


Can we camp overnight?

There is no overnight camping at either location.  

Is there a dress code?

There is no dress code.   Park concerts are very casual.  Concerts at the LPCA can be casual or dressy – there is always a mix of both.  “Business casual” is the most common style seen, but hikers getting off a mountain are also welcome. 

Is alcohol served? 

The Pre-concert concession at the LPCA concerts offer wine and beer as an option and the free meet-the-artists post concert receptions offer wine and non-alcoholic punch.  The Park Concerts are held in a public park and open container regulations are in effect.  

Are concerts pet and child friendly?

Concerts at the LPCA always offer reduced admission of $10 for anyone 18 yrs. of age or under.  The concerts are approximately one hour long – we leave it up to parents to judge their child’s ability to enjoy these concerts. 

Park concerts are a very good option for younger children, as long as they aren’t noisy or distracting to other patrons, we encourage movement and even dancing in front of the bandshell.  Many people bring pets to the Park concerts as well, we would only be concerned if an animal was noisy or bothering other concertgoers.  



Mid’s park is in the middle of downtown Lake Placid.  There are three public lots across the street and at that time of day it is usually not difficult to find a spot.   The LPCA site offers ample free parking.  The park concert rainsite of St. Agnes Church also had ample parking.  

Can I bring in outside food/drinks or a Cooler? 

At the Park concerts, many people bring take out or picnic meals to eat during the concert.

Bag size limits?

We do not limit bag size.  

Rain refunds

Park concerts are free, if there is rain or weather under 65 degrees (bad for some instruments) concerts are moved to St. Agnes Church on Saranac Ave. in Lake Placid. All other concerts are indoors but if an emergency necessitated cancellation a refund of ticket price would be offered.


Handicap accessible?

The LPCA is fully handicap accessible, including restrooms at the theater level and an available entrance without stairs.   Mid’s Park is build to ADA specifications for grade and width of pathways but it is on a hill.  The distance to the public restrooms may pose a difficulty for some people with mobility restrictions. 


Dress for weather?

Always, and remember that in the Adirondacks you can count on the weather changing.
