The Musical Arts Series Port Clinton Announces Resumption of Concerts

The Musical Arts Series - Port Clinton resumed the regular 2021/2022 concert season with the first concert on Saturday, September 11, 2021 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 everyone over 12 years of age in Ohio, the continued use of masks, and social distancing that we can safely begin indoor concerts in larger venues beginning October 3rd, 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 300 attendees with proof of vaccination, masking and adequate social distancing to provide a safe performance environment.

All attendees will be required to present a photo ID with a proof of vaccination card or a certified negative COVID test within (3) days of the concert. All attendees must wear a mask during the entire performance. Free masks will be available at the ticket booth.

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

The schedule for our 2021-2022 season is listed below:

The lovely rose garden in front of Firelands Presbyterian Church honors Dr. Jay M. Mann, Professor Emeritus of Music at Heidelberg College in Tiffin, where he was Professor of Voice and Chorus for 29 years. After retiring and moving to Lakeside in 1998, Dr. Mann and his wife, Margaret, were musicians at Firelands Church. Dr. Mann also served as President of the Musical Arts Series in Port Clinton, and coordinated pre-concert talks for the Lakeside Symphony Orchestra. He retired fully in 2012, and moved to Colorado Springs to be closer to his family.

Intimate music series continues in Port Clinton

There’s no shortage of world-class musical talent in Northern Ohio. However, most performances are taking place in Toledo and Cleveland.

That is unless it’s a  Musical Arts Series – Port Clinton concert, which six to eight times a year features topnotch artists showing off their talents at the intimate Firelands Presbyterian Church.
