Ontario Center for Performing Arts is dedicated to the production of high quality local performances for the enjoyment and enrichment of our membership and community at large, to provide support for song writers, composers, musicians and performing artists, and to recognize, encourage and support the diversity of our musical heritage.
Also known as the Oswego Music Hall, we are a 501(c)3 organization, run by a 17-member Board of Directors, operating under established by-laws, bringing great performances to Upstate New York for over 40 years. We operate at the City of Oswego McCrobie Civic Center, an historic and classy venue that overlooks Lake Ontario. On concert evenings, the hall is transformed into an intimate venue replete with candlelit tables, professional staging and sound. Concert goers find an array of freshly baked desserts, hot cider and freshly brewed coffee.
The Music Hall is a “listening” venue sought after by songwriters and musicians. We seek to offer a venue for the unheard voice, new ideas, and those who use song to reach out from and to the edges of our culture.
