About Hubbard Hall

Our Mission and Vision
“Making art and community happen.”

Hubbard Hall is an arts center supporting creativity and inviting participation to make art and community happen.  We strive to enrich the lives of individuals and communities, and offer valuable pathways to learning through the arts.  Hubbard Hall intends that its programs promote and serve as a magnet for artistic activity.

In carrying out its mission, Hubbard Hall strives to 

  • present and produce the very highest quality professional artists
  • create educational and performing opportunities for community members of all ages and abilities to participate in the arts
  • provide opportunities for mentoring and educational interaction between professionals and amateurs.

In this capacity, Hubbard Hall develops artistic talent, engages new audiences for the arts, and provides access to cultural programs responsive to the interests of a diverse array of residents and artists in rural Washington County as well as neighboring counties in New York and Vermont.  Hubbard Hall is also committed to restoring and preserving the 1878 Hubbard Opera House and the adjacent buildings in the Cambridge Freight Yard as community cultural assets.

 Arts Education
We provide a wide variety of classes and workshops year-round for learners of all ages, from Irish Step dancing to Karate and from Acting to Basket Weaving. There are Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter Sessions and each class is taught by one of our trained master teaching artists.

Training Programs and Productions
Innovation, experimentation and training are at the heart of Hubbard Hall. Our resident companies provide world-class performances throughout the year and also training opportunities in opera, music and theater for learners of all ages. Hubbard Hall Theater, Opera Theater and Music from Salem give audiences and artists the opportunity to experience work rarely seen or heard elsewhere.

Performances and Presentations
Through our Performance Series, musical groups, companies and solo artists perform in our beautiful opera house for packed, intimate houses. This series gives world-class artists the opportunity to perform acoustically or with minimum technical assistance and audiences the opportunity to experience amazing music, dance or solo performances in an intimate setting.

Special Events and Rentals
Hubbard Hall Center for the Arts consists of four beautiful historic buildings, including an 1878 Opera House and three beautifully restored freight yard buildings, including art, music and dance studios, an exhibit and special event space and a black box theater and meeting space. The entire campus is available to rent for special events and conferences. Contact Kate Johnson at 518-677-2495, ext. 314 or kate@hubbardhall.org more information.
