2021 - 2022 Concert Season

The Musical Arts Series Port Clinton Announces Resumption of Concerts

Our current plans are to resume the 2021/2022 concert season with the first concert to be on Saturday, September 11, 2021 @ 3:30 pm (rain date to be determined).

Harmonia will perform at the outdoor Steele Memorial Band Stand at Lakeside Chautauqua.

The Musical Arts Series/Port Clinton steering committee continues to closely monitor the COVID-19 virus recommendations of the CDC, the Ohio Department of Health, and the Ottawa County Health Department.
We hope that with the continued vaccination availability to all adults in Ohio, the continued use of masks, and social distancing that we can begin indoor concerts in larger venues beginning October 3, 2021. This will be dependent on whether the recent surge in COVID-19 cases in Ottawa County and nationwide can be contained.

We have made arrangements with the Port Clinton School System to use the High School Performing Arts Center for our indoor concerts this coming fall (2021) and winter (2022) season. The large, Performing Arts Center will allow us to accommodate up to 150 attendees with adequate social distancing to provide a safe performance environment.
We also plan to have one of the performances at the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church which is a large indoor venue capable of accommodating up to 150 attendees with adequate social distancing.

We will observe all current pandemic health recommendations and regulations in effect at the time of each concert.

The schedule for our 2021-2022 season is:

We have presented concerts for 18 years without a glitch, until now. The pandemic has severely impacted the entire performing arts community so, sadly, we are not alone.

Please check this website or our Facebook page frequently for the latest information about our concerts in 2021 and 2022.

We greatly appreciate the ongoing financial support of our sponsors and season ticket holders.

Tickets that were purchased for a 2019-2020 concert will be honored for any rescheduled concert in 2021-2022.

We look forward to seeing you at our next concert on September 11, 2021 at Lakeside Chautauqua.

Sincerely,
The Musical Arts Series/Port Clinton Steering Committee
