Violinist Keiko Tokunaga plans to join Sebago-Long Lake Music Festival this summer as it celebrates its 50th season at 7:30 p.m. Tuesdays, July 19, 26 and Aug. 2, at Deertrees Theatre, at 156 Deertrees Road in Harrison. She is one of 24 artists from across the U.S. who will perform with the Festival this summer. She first performed with the festival in 2016.
Tokunaga spends most of her days touring and performing globally as a soloist and chamber musician. In 2021, as her “pandemic project,” she founded an online concert series, Jukebox Concerts, in order to provide artistic outlets for musicians who lost their engagements. The performances were made available not only to the subscribers, but also to residents of nursing homes, hospitals and assisted living facilities across the country. Later in the year, she created INTERWOVEN, a multi-cultural ensemble whose mission is to eliminate discrimination against the AAAPI (Asians, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders) community by integrating the musical traditions of the East and West.

Currently on faculty at Fordham University, Tokunaga also taught at The Juilliard School Pre-College Division, between 2008 and 2019.

Sebago-Long Lake Music Festival will feature concerts at 7:30 p.m. Tuesdays at Deertrees Theatre between July 12 and Aug.
