  • Maine Academy of Modern Music
    The music programming at the nonprofit Maine Academy of Modern Music is designed to allow pupils to rock out to their favorite contemporary jams. During individualized lessons, teachers help students master the basics of rock instruments such as guitar, bass, drums, and more. From there, young rockers can enlist in one of the school's rock bands, where they'll learn to play alongside other musicians as a group. That, in turn, leads to performance opportunities, which the school sets up at renowned Portland venues like Bayside Bowl, Big Easy, Asylum, and the Old Port Festival. Bands also assemble at the school's rock camps, where attendees not only rehearse originals and covers but also learn rock history and take field trips to local radio stations. Besides its in-house opportunities, the academy's outreach programs also supply local schools with everything from private concerts to master classes to ensure everyone has access to quality music education.

    facet: Main type: Traditional locale: en_US title: The Music Hall facet_type_id: 808272d0-6883-1032-a9fa-225b41169c6e html_text: |- Opened in 1878, the Music Hall's Historic Theater isn't just the oldest stage in New Hampshire; it's older than all of the state's residents. But thanks to a recent restoration, today's audiences can experience the venue in all its original splendor, including the same hardwood floor that Mark Twain and Buffalo Bill Cody once crossed. Fittingly, it hosts many productions steeped in Americana, from Broadway musicals to symphony concerts. Around the corner from the Historic Theater is a newer landmark, the Music Hall Loft. A more intimate venue with just 124 seats, the Loft focuses on more modern entertainment such as poetry readings, film screenings, and cloning festivals.

  • Big Apple Circus
    facet: Main type: Traditional locale: en_US title: Big Apple Circus facet_type_id: 7b6fe1f0-5f38-1032-beef-7331057bd88d html_text: |- Warm in winter, cool in summer, and filled with amazing acts in every season, the Big Apple Circus's pair of Italian-made big tops contains the best of several generations' worth of circus traditions. A look at any show's cast finds a complex network of venerable European circus families passing the arts of juggling and trapeze artistry down through the years, while the tents' motors and seating make for a comfortably modern spectator experience. You might never guess that the troupe started small in 1974, when American circus artists Paul Binder and Michael Christensen joined forces as a juggling act on the streets of Europe. They moved from streetlights to spotlights in a hurry, appearing on the stage of the Nouveau Cirque de Paris, before returning to the U.S. and creating their own not-for-profit circus in 1976 and raising their first tent in New York's Battery Park.
