The Sembrich Announces Opening of the 2022 Season
The Sembrich has announced the opening of its museum and historic lakeside grounds on May 27, 2022. The Sembrich’s lakeside grounds will be open daily 9:30 AM – 5:00 PM and the museum will be open daily 10:00 AM – 12:30 PM and 2:00 PM – 5:00 PM from May 27 through mid-September. New in the 2022 season are updated museum exhibits, numerous renovations to the historic facility, and expanded outdoor performance offerings during the 2022 Summer Festival Reimagining the Classics.
“We are excited to open in 2022 with so many new and exciting additions and improvements to The Sembrich,” says Executive Director Suzanna M. Bernd. “After we closed for the season in the fall of 2021, we immediately began work on our Studio Preservation Project, to update the historic studio. The transformation includes a new roof, heating and cooling equipment, and electrical system, all of which will improve our visitors’ experience, and protect the collection for years to come as we approach our Centennial in 2024.
The Sembrich’s 2022 exhibit Reimagining a Career: The Transformation of a Diva, will explore the transformation and transition of Marcella Sembrich’s incredible career; from dominating the operatic stage, to commanding the concert scene, and then to nurturing the next generation of artists. The display will also include explorations of several of Sembrich’s students and colleagues. This exhibit will be on display for the duration of the 2022 season. Also, on display in 2022 are two of Sembrich’s historic opera costumes worn during her operatic tours. The costumes are one-of-a-kind textiles, made specifically for Sembrich, and show the intricate and elegant pieces worn by singer of the era.
