Why Corporate Sponsorship

Invest in your community! The Music Hall and our patrons will play a key role in returning Portsmouth and the region to a bustling, vibrant scene. We look forward to working together to build economic and social stability.

The Music Hall is:

  • an economic driver (support for The Music Hall means support for artists, employees, and vendors, as well as local restaurants, shops, etc.),
  • a place for shared experiences that unite,
  • a landmark destination (built in 1878), and
  • a nonprofit organization (ticket sales only cover a percentage of costs, and right now that earned income is well below typical years).

Sponsor support this past year allowed The Music Hall to:

  • retain our core group of experienced arts professionals,
  • provide socially-distanced entertainment,
  • repeatedly adapt with new approaches to programming, and
  • stay ready to return to full-scale business.

While in-person audiences have been severely limited, we have maintained our highly desirable membership base of more than 3,000 households and continue to reach out via email to ~32k enews subscribers.

Become a Corporate Partner Today

As a corporate partner of The Music Hall, your business is aligned with one of the leading arts organizations in the region. Right now, you can play a significant role in sustaining a healthy arts presence on the seacoast.

While audiences are necessarily limited, The Music Hall’s member base remains strong, and we continue to boast a dedicated base of Seacoast fans. Sponsorship is a great way to connect with this desirable audience.

If you have the means, please consider a sponsorship. We also welcome purely philanthropic donations! We need the arts to be here when we establish the new normal. The Music Hall is key to Portsmouth’s future as a bustling, vibrant downtown and New Hampshire’s return to vitality, but we need your support to get us there.
