COVID 19 has changed our world.   It has not, however, changed our desire to enjoy live performances by talented people.     Cadenza has been and will again be a popular venue to enjoy live music.    

In addition to live streaming all of our shows we have been having live audiences since late June.   Our audiences have been small (generally 10 – 20 people) and very complimentary of what we are doing to keep everyone safe.  It’s actually a great time to see a show, with a small audience and talented performers.

To keep everyone safe we will be maintaining these standards which comply with the Maine COVID-19 Prevention Checklist for Performing Arts Venues dated June 24, 2020


  • Limited number of performers, spread out on the stage to maintain social distancing
