The quickest way to find out what is going is to check the Arts Council for the Northern Adirondacks master arts calendar for the area.
Recovery Lounge: This is Scott and Byron Renderer’s place in Upper Jay. Also known as Upper Jay Upholstery. And also known as The Upper Jay Art Center. This place is the scene of excellent and intimate theater and musical events.

Lake Placid Sinfonietta: Billing itself as the orchestra of the Adirondacks they perform in July and August in many locations around the Park. They have a concert at the small park on Mirror Lake in the middle of Lake Placid early on Wednesday evenings in July and August.
Meadowmount School of Music: This is a summer school for advanced training in classical music performance, particularly string instruments and piano. Three concerts each week are open to the public.

Saranac Lake Waterhole another fine SL place it draws in big national acts. In it's early days this was Waterhole #3 and it has been through lots of changes.
Lake Placid Institute: This organization does a lot of things but my favorite is a lecture program that brings notable people to speak in Lake Placid.
