Singer/songwriter Randy Camera thinks there is more to Lake Monticello than board and committee meetings. His passion for music, songwriting and community inspired his idea for House Concerts at the Lake.

It also gives the musicians the chance to perform for an appreciative audience. Camera points out that nowhere else could you go for a $10 cover charge, which includes home cooking and entertainment and saves on gas because you don’t have to drive to Charlottesville or Richmond.
