“Beautiful intimate setting for a concert”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

This is a wonderful venue and concert hall. The sound is great . The view is spectacular. They get top name acts as well as thier own Rockport chamber music. It is a wonderful addition to the North Shore and Rockport specifically.

“Gorgeous concert hall”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

Relatively intimate hall, with 300-some seats, and near-perfect acoustics. The stage backdrop is the most stunning possible: a large window that looks out onto the ocean. Shalin Liu gave the community of Rockport a wonderful gift with this hall.

“Amazing Sound”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

We saw Manhatten Transfer on July 28, 2013 and they gave an amazing performance. The Center has a great sound system. Book tickets a head of time because the performances sell out quickly. It is so lovely to watch performers on a stage in front of the ocean.

“Gorgeous view...a must do in Rockport”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

I heard Kaki King, and her instrumental performance was perfect. The acoustics and the view make the experience unforgettable. Check the website for Rockport Music to get the schedule. If you can squeeze in a performance, do not miss it. For a nice dinner nearby, Brackett's is just a few doors down and has an ocean view. Parking is by meter before 6pm...bring quarters if you arrive early for sightseeing.
