And after an action packed day, families can unwind and watch some of the finest theater and music performances at the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival and the Lake Tahoe SummerFest Concerts.

TahoesBest.com encourages visitors and locals to spoil their entire families to the spectacular productions at Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival and the Lake Tahoe SummerFest Concerts for enchanting evenings of entertainment at the lake this summer.

Lake Tahoe SummerFest Concerts

The SummerFest Concerts in Lake Tahoe provide parents with the prime opportunity to introduce their children to the world of classical music from August 2 to August 18, 2013.

Round up the kids and attend a concert on Friday evening at the Sierra Nevada College campus and listen to the phenomenal Lake Tahoe SummerFest Orchestra with musicians from some of the best orchestras in the world. This summer, Maestro Joel Revzen will conduct the world-class orchestra, which includes members from the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Vancouver symphony, Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, and other well-renowned symphonies and orchestras.

The Lake Tahoe SummerFest series also host family concerts on Sundays, which are performances geared especially toward children. On August 11, at 4pm, invite the kids along to this afternoon performance, which will delight young audiences with Peter and the Wolf narration and Overture and Dance of the Furies from Gluck’s Orfeo ed Euridice. Or book tickets for the family concert on August 18, and marvel with the kids at Brubeck’s “The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County,” and “Tale of the Hermitage Cats.”

Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival

This summer vacation, treat the whole family to an evening at the Lake Take Shakespeare Festival. This year, the nonprofit organization has outdone itself with its alluring production of Shakespeare’s, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” which will run until August 25, 2013, at the Sand Harbor State Park in North Lake Tahoe.

Inspired by 1960’s mod London, this Shakespeare performance will make audiences of all ages laugh out loud with the comical plot line of star-crossed lovers and mischievous fairies. It’s a fun and light hearted theater production that will captivate and entertain the entire family.

On certain nights at the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival, guests can catch other productions such as the Reno Chamber Orchestra, Sierra Nevada Ballet, Reno Jazz Orchestra, and other must-see acts like the “Living History” Lake Tahoe Chautauqua and “Les Miserables” in Concert.
