It was a surprising and memorable evening inside the historic Main Lodge for the fortunate August 1st – 8th weekly guests as they were serenaded by the Von Trapp Children during dinner. It was a great experience and made for a wonderful dinner for all. Thanks to the Children (the Great Grand Children of Maria and Captain Von Trapp from the Sound of Music) for providing a great night of entertainment for all those who made it. We hope we can make it happen again next year!

Check out the Children and the whole family on Oprah today!

The Grande Finale

September was a pretty memorable month here at Flathead Lake Lodge. We hosted the first annual Crown of the Continent Guitar Foundation Workshop and Festival, to great success.

The festivities took place August 29 – September 5, 2010. There were 48 workshop participants (with 10 receiving scholarships), over 1,000 people attended the public performances and approximately 100 people attended the free community workshops throughout the Flathead Valley. The event was rated a big success on all fronts from workshop participants to guest artists to faculty to concert attendees.

Nightly both workshop participants and the public were treated to amazing concerts featuring the workshops instructors, including Pat Metheny, Alex De Grassi, Scott Tennant, Matt Smith, Doug Smith, Adrew Leonard, Mark Dziuba, Jody Fisher and many more.

The amazing week was culminated by a spectacular public concert over looking Flathead Lake. Mother Nature behaved and graced us with a beautiful evening and sunset as the instructors and artists put on a show for all to remember.
