The Portland Symphony Orchestra has been inspiring audiences since it made its debut almost a century ago. And while there’s little chance that today’s patrons will find a concert canceled because the hall’s custodian went fishing (as was the case in 1924) the PSO still resonates with a refrain that echoes far beyond the borders of our city and stage. That sound is grounded in our commitment to the world-class performance of exceptional musical experiences we invite you to share. (This excerpt taken from the Portland Symphony Orchestra website)

It is impossible to overestimate the historical significance of the waterfront in the development of Portland. It is where the city began and was the primary engine of its growth and economy for three centuries afterward. The Waterfront Historic District is one of the few intact east coast historic waterfronts and today looks substantially the same as it did in the period 1850 to 1875. Visually as well as historically this area forms a coherent and comprehensible whole. (This excerpt taken from the Old Port website)
