The Region's Cultural Core
About Maryland Hall
Maryland Hall is the region’s cultural core, bringing together people of all ages and backgrounds to strengthen community and experience the power of the arts. Discover an energy where the arts serve to connect, empower, inspire and heal through arts education, visual arts, performing arts and entertainment. Established in 1979 as a groundbreaking public/private partnership with Anne Arundel County Public Schools (AACPS) that transformed the vacated and beautiful Annapolis High School building into a vibrant home for the arts to be shared by all, MD Hall now serves more than 100,000 people a year.
Partnership, education, programming and outreach have been at the core of our mission since our founding. Today, over a dozen arts organizations and professional artists have studio, office and performing space within our special building. This includes our Four Resident Companies: Annapolis Opera, Annapolis Symphony Orchestra, Ballet Theatre of Maryland and Live Arts Maryland. Through the support of our partners, members, sponsors and committed donors, experiencing the arts no matter your socioeconomic level is a reality at MD Hall. Scholarships, tuition waivers and Outreach programs are offered for those in financial need.
