This umbrella organization is determined that the arts continue to play an integral role in helping the Maitland community establish and maintain its cultural identity. On this site you will find information on the Maitland Symphony Orchestra (MSO), the Maitland Farmers Market (M3), the Maitland Poets and Writers (MPW) and the Maitland Stage Band (MSB). Other groups that have been supported by PAM are the Maitland Youth Community Choir (MYcc), and the Resonance Maitland Handbell Ensemble (RMHE).
Performing Arts of Maitland (PAM), became the City of Maitland’s 4th Cultural Partner in December 2006. City staff and community members assisted Jefferson S. Flowers, PAM’s founder, in obtaining 501(c)(3) status by donating their time and resources. With the City as the major funding contributor at this time, the goal is to have a focal point to join with our children and our neighbors to interact with on a human scale, to know each other and learn from each other.
Musicians and performers of all ages share their talents and help bring the arts in their many varieties to this neighborhood, just minutes from downtown Orlando. PAM goals include partnering with the Maitland Historical Society and the Maitland Art Center to build a thing of beauty that all can admire and come together to build.
