In celebration of the LHE/PAC’s 10th Anniversary, the Portland Symphony Orchestra will be performing a very special concert with Broadway and Metropolitan Opera soprano, Alyson Cambridge on Thursday, October 24th at 7:00 pm.

Founded in 1923, the ‘PSO’ is widely regarded as one of the top symphony orchestras of its size in the country. Led by Music Director, Eckart Preu, the orchestra is comprised of 82 professional musicians, 40% of them residing in Maine and the rest coming from the greater Boston area, New Hampshire and Vermont. The PSO will be accompanied by guest vocalist Alyson Cambridge.

Cambridge is currently starring in ROCKTOPIA on Broadway and has sung multiple lead roles with the Metropolitan Opera. She has been hailed by critics as “radiant, vocally assured, and artistically imaginative (Washington Post), noted for her “powerful, clear voice” (New York Times), and “revelatory, smoky readings” (Opera News). For over a decade, Cambridge has been performing at some of the world’s most recognized opera houses and concert halls (Carnegie Hall, Los Angeles Opera, and London’s Royal Albert Hall, to name a few). She has also performed locally with Opera Maine, as Elvira in Don Giovanni (2006) and as Musetta inLa Boheme (2013). Alyson Cambridge has become “one of the most diverse and compelling vocal artists on the scene today.” This concert is sponsored in part by the generosity of the Robert & Dorothy Goldberg Charitable Foundation.
