Give the Gift of Music This Year with PSO Tickets


PORTLAND, Maine This year, what could be a better holiday treat than the gift of art and culture? By giving the gift of the Portland Symphony Orchestra (PSO), Mainers can simultaneously support their local arts community while giving someone the pleasure of experiencing that which they might not otherwise purchase themselves this year the gift of music, culture, fun and joy.

There is also still time to purchase Magic of Christmas tickets for this season. Ticket prices range from $20 to $55, with special pricing available for students and seniors. The most fun, and economical, way to see Magic is with a group of family or friends groups of 10 or more receive special pricing and personalized assistance. A group sales request form can be found at

A perfect gift for the lover of opera or vocal music in your life, Rene Fleming is making her Maine debut February 17 at a very special Endowment Benefit Concert for the PSO. One of the great sopranos of this or any era, Rene Fleming is at the peak of her powers, and starred in the Metropolitan Opera's season opening gala this year. She will pair her most celebrated classical repertoire with folk and art songs and tunes from Broadway favorites. This is an event not to be missed, sure to delight that special person on any gift list.

For those looking for an inspired holiday gift for friends, family, coworkers or employees, there is a flexible option for PSO gift giving. The PSO is offering the FlexPass. The perfect ticket to an inspired musical experience, the FlexPass is available in increments of $75 per pair, and can be redeemed for any PSO concert in the current season. Each FlexPass voucher entitles the holder to receive one ticket to any PSO concert of their choice, making their concert-going experience "tailor-made" to their own tastes and schedule. Seating will be offered on a "best available" basis at the time the tickets are requested. Please note, restrictions may apply and seating is subject to availability, and FlexPasses are not eligible for the Rene Fleming Endowment Concert.
