January in Maine means snow, short days, and the Portland Symphony Orchestra’s family celebration of the season. From Vivaldi’s Four Seasons to Tchaikovsky’s enchanting ballets, we’ve gathered together the very best music inspired by the coldest season of the year. So park your sleds outside and spend 50 minutes with our Symphony!

Discovery Concerts bring the whole family together to enjoy the music of the PSO. Concerts are approximately one-hour long and take the audience on a mind-expanding and educational journey with the full orchestra! Doors open at 1 PM for games, a hands-on Instrument Petting Zoo, and lots more musical fun!
