Symphony & Spirits is back with a Pride month collaboration with Equality Maine and celebration at Portland’s #1 LGBTQ+ bar, Flask Lounge!

This month, Symphony and Spirits and Equality Maine will be collaborating to celebrate LGBTQ+ voices and composers of classical music. We will be hosting our event at Flask Lounge, locally voted the #1 LGBTQ+ bar in Portland two years in a row. For only $25, you will receive a signature cocktail or mocktail at Flask Lounge prior to the concert, snacks at the event, and entry into that evening’s PSO concert, Rise Up, which features music by LGBTQ+ composers, performed by the Portland Symphony Orchestra.

Symphony & Spirits is a series of Portland Symphony Orchestra events designed to bring music lovers together. We partner with local bars and restaurants to create an accessible space to build a community of friends surrounding our love of classical music and local culture.
