Musical Arts Series Port Clinton serves it mission by offering free tickets for students, discounted tickets for local senior citizens’ organizations, free performances at senior communities, and quality cultural experiences.
We offer seven or more concerts each season, and extend our series to reach children in the schools. In September 2016, we added a free bonus concert to introduce the Musical Arts Series Port Clinton to first time attendees.
We are able to attract outstanding performers, from Ohio, around the U.S., and abroad. Our performers provide a quality musical experience and interact directly with our audience at a reception following each concert. Our performers include university faculty and students as well as seasoned professionals performing a diverse range of programs including: classical guitar, four-handed piano, opera, choral, jazz, and bluegrass.
During every concert, we have our performers discuss the music they are playing, thereby making each performance educational as well as entertaining.
The Stensen Foundation has funded master classes and special concerts over the past several years. These artists have helped bring exceptional live music and education beyond our scheduled annual concerts, allowing us to reach more people in our community.
The Musical Arts Series Port Clinton is a non-profit, 501(c)3, organization.
