    On June 10, 2010, Rockport Music opened the doors to the Shalin Liu Performance Center. We believe this extraordinary building – with its spectacular views and superb acoustics – has become an important cultural resource for the greater Boston community, attracting well-known performers, audiences, and visitors to Cape Ann.

    The performance center, designed to showcase chamber music, is the home of Rockport Music’s signature presentation, the Rockport Chamber Music Festival, which includes over 20 concerts, as well as pre-concert lectures, open rehearsals and free events for families. In order to appeal to a broad range of tastes, the center also hosts the Rockport Jazz Festival, as well as a diverse series of classical, jazz, folk, world and pop music concerts; HD broadcasts from the Metropolitan Opera and England’s National Theatre and films.
