Performing Arts

A City Known for Its Excellence in Theater & Music

When it comes to performing arts, Greater Portland’s calendar is always full. The city is known for its professional excellence in theater and music. It attracts audiences from all over Maine and beyond to summer concerts, winter holiday celebrations, and world-class theater performances.

Performing arts is an important part of the region’s cultural fabric, particularly when it comes to the local performing arts groups. Community and student theater enjoy enthusiastic support, thriving in and around the city where musicals, plays, performance pieces, video shorts, and original works delight and impress audiences in downtown venues and community theater establishments.

Visitors will also find historic downtown buildings restored to serve as venues for national and local music acts, film premiers, PechaKutcha, fashion galas, and special events that enrich the community.

Music lovers will applaud the Portland Chamber Music Festival, which brings nationally-recognized artists of the highest caliber to Portland and education and engagement programs for community members of all ages. The Portland Symphony Orchestra enjoys a long and proud tradition of bringing professional excellence to live orchestral music in Maine. Theater lovers will be on their feet when they learn that Portland is home to Maine’s largest fully professional, non-profit theater which delivers productions for audiences in a broad region of Northern New England. And, just out of town in the Mid-coast region, Broadway-quality professional music theater livens up the coastal summers.
