Portland Ovations

Portland Ovations
As a non-profit, Portland Ovations contributes to the cultural, social and economic well-being of our community by presenting an array of high quality performing artists from around the world and creating diverse educational experiences that bring the enjoyment, energy, and enrichment of the arts to all.

Every year since 1931, Portland Ovations brings a dynamic season of exceptional performing artists to Portland including classical music, jazz and pop music, dance, opera, theater, and Broadway national tours.

In addition to our live performances, we bring the exhilaration of the performing arts out into our community with season-long educational and outreach programs called Ovations Offstage.
