Event website

Join us for the launch of our summer series at Deering Oaks Park with VIVA and the Reinforcements!

Maine Academy of Modern Music is thrilled to present “The Kids Are Alright”, a family-friendly local music series aimed at encouraging children’s involvement in the musical arts. This series will take place, in partnership with the Friends of Deering Oaks each Friday in July at 10:30am at the park bandstand. The event is free and open to the public thanks to sponsorship from Maine Red Claws and Machias Savings Bank.

Viva & The Reinforcements, Portland’s very own Deco-Jazz act, deliver spicy cosmopolitan grooves in a show that balances zest with classic standards elegantly renewed. Backed by an ever-changing fleet of the jazz elite, she’ll slide her way into your fondest memories, always thrilling, never the same show twice.

Each week, our featured performer will be followed by MAMM camp ensembles.

Song by song, Maine Academy of Modern Music (MAMM) aspires to provide Maine youth with the discipline, freedom, and guidance to appreciate the thrill of making contemporary music, instilling in them the power of self-expression. MAMM is dedicated to building leadership through the musical arts.
