Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates

Last Updated: November 2, 2020 at 10:57 AM

Portland Symphony Orchestra fully supports the efforts of public health officials to control the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). We are committed to the health and safety of our patrons, musicians, staff, and the greater community. We will continue to follow all guidelines made by local, state, or federal health officials.

We encourage our patrons, musicians, and staff to take extra precautions as outlined by the CDC here. For more information on the novel coronavirus in Maine please check the Maine CDC site here, call 211, or email info@211maine.org.



The PSO Plays On!

In these trying times, we are reminded of the tremendous power music has to bring comfort, calm, and a sense of community. As cancellations of performances become widespread in the wake of the novel coronavirus, the financial implications for arts organizations around Maine and the world are far-reaching. In order to help sustain our work and support our musicians through these challenging times and beyond, we encourage patrons and friends of the PSO to donate to our Resiliency Fund. Your support will help the PSO Play On now and into the future!

Your Portland Symphony Orchestra is committed to safely connecting you to music this year and beyond through the following initiatives:

Our new subscription model the PSO Passport which is an evolution of our packages with new pricing options, increased scheduling flexibility, and creative ways to safely hear the PSO Play On both online and, when it is safe to do so, in-person.

An innovative 2020-21 season crafted with safety and artistic excellence as our guiding principles.

Our digital series PSO: Notes from Home allows our amazing musicians to bring music from their home to yours. We hope their art will help bring light and comfort to you and yours.

Our digital program PSO: Education Everywhere consists of educational videos, activities, and playlists created by PSO musicians and staff for all ages.


Through all of this, we have been heartened and inspired by the support and resilience of our community and are confident we can navigate these challenges together. Until we see each other again, stay safe and be well.
