Our Commitment to Community
“The Music Hall reconnects audiences and communities with creativity, purpose, art, and life.”—Ken Burns
For more than two decades, community outreach has been key to our mission. Through active educational initiatives and live theatrical and film experiences, The Music Hall has enriched the lives of thousands—from the littlest toddlers watching their first on-stage performance, to teenage arts students participating in intimate workshops with visiting artists; to mature patrons experiencing eye-opening documentaries and panel discussions in our Film Matters series that addresses global issues and local solutions.
The Music Hall is a committed community partner all year round, getting back as much as we give from working with many wonderful non-profit organizations, corporate sponsors, and visiting artists. We are proud to be part of the thriving arts scene in Portsmouth and to partner with such local organizations as the African Burying Ground, Portsmouth Music & Arts Center, Arts in Reach, and Strawbery Banke Museum, among many others. These relationships, as well as our partnerships with indispensable corporate sponsors, enhance our ability to offer diverse and inclusive events to the community.
We salute all of our fellow local theaters and arts venues, whose dedication to a rich cultural life has helped make the Seacoast a vibrant place to live, work, visit, and play.
