Can you name this Portland historic gem?
That's right, it's Mechanics' Hall, designed by John Calvin Stevens, restored and managed by the Maine Charitable Mechanic Association. Thanks to the generosity of Clorinda & Dick Noyes, we have a PIANO! And thanks to MCMA, we have a beautiful place to house it and show it off to the public.
Please join 240 Strings, the Portland Piano Trio, and MCMA for our "piano-warming" inaugural concert on Wednesday, March 7: Mingling at 5pm, PPT at 6pm, with a 240 Strings student showcase video thrown in during the concert. Bring your friends!
We're also pleased to announce that in December, we were awarded three grants: one from the Maine Community Foundation Performing Arts Fund, one from the Morton Kelly Charitable Trust, and one from the Margaret E. Burnham Chartitable Trust.
Other important dates:
*Feb. 2 concert at First Parish Church, 7:30pm.
*Feb. 20 benefit night at Flatbread Pizza, 5-9pm.
*Many other concerts scheduled across Maine between March and September, as listed on our website.
And save the dates for the rest of our 2018 series at Mechanics' Hall:

Looking forward to sharing music, pizza & ideas with you!
