MVSB is thrilled to support the 2022-2023 School Days Series Season at The Music Hall with a $10,000 sponsorship. This will allow The Music Hall to offer complimentary tickets, transportation and lunches to students, making it possible for them to attend professional matinees at the Theater. MVSB has sponsored The Music Hall for many years and this year marks their third season of supporting the School Days Series.

“We are looking forward to welcoming upwards of 8,000 students from across the Seacoast area for performances in our Historic Theater for the School Days Series,” said Sara Turner, Corporate and Foundation Relations Manager for The Music Hall. “The generosity of community partners like MVSB allows us to continue to be a leader in arts education and to contribute to the renewed vitality of the region.”

“MVSB is proud to support The Music Hall in their efforts to provide professional-level performing art experiences to students,” said James Carrigan, MVSB Regional Vice President, Branch & Business Development Manager in Portsmouth. “This program allows access to an education opportunity that many young people may not otherwise be able to enjoy and we are honored to help make this series more accessible to local children in any way we can.”

The mission of The Music Hall is to present the very best of diverse performing and related arts. The Music Hall is dedicated to the enrichment of the Seacoast community. It acts as the community’s great room, fostering a love of arts, community and big ideas. For nearly 150 years, The Music Hall has been in the heart of Portsmouth and operates out of two venues—an 1878 Victorian-era Historic Theater and the modern and intimate Lounge space. Through innovative community partnerships like this one with MVSB, it subsidizes thousands of tickets each year to make the arts accessible to all.
