Attendees for full-capacity indoor events will need to show proof of vaccination OR a negative test.

From the Music Director

Dear friends,

Classical orchestral music provides the soundtrack for so much of our lives — from movie scores to Christmas carols — shaping many of our collective traditions and memories.

The basic human need for collective celebration, traditions and music is perhaps most acute at this time of year. Our coming together over music is both a comfort in the darkest days and a celebration of the return of the light and a new year on the horizon.

And so it should come as no surprise that December, more than any other month on the PSO’s calendar, offers so many opportunities to gather, hear and enjoy the songs and classical works that bring our celebrations to life.

This month’s performances feature a wide variety of favorites in three different venues, all of which have COVID-19 vaccination and masking requirements in place to ensure the safety and health of the performers and audience members.

On behalf of everyone at the Portsmouth Symphony Orchestra, we wish you and your family a healthy and happy holiday season and we look forward to seeing you at one or more of these memorable performances.

As they say in Vienna, Prosit Neujahr!!
