About Us and Our Mission:
Throughout its colorful history - from meeting house, to movie house, to the active, year-round, fully renovated performing arts facility it is today - Lebanon Opera House has come a long way in 83 years. The Opera House’s recent renovations have been a catalyst for community economic development, leading a renaissance of Lebanon’s downtown. In the wake of significant post-renovation organizational growth, LOH’s mission statement was revised during its second strategic planning process in 2006-07 to more adequately reflect the organization’s broader purpose and business:
A cultural center for the Upper Valley region, Lebanon Opera House:
- presents live performances that inspire, educate and entertain,
- broadens cultural horizons by spotlighting a diversity of local, national, and international artists,
- encourages community participation in the arts, and
- stewards a special gathering place for community and school use that will engender future arts patrons and participants.
