More than 900 fans jammed into the State Theatre in downtown Portland Thursday night for the Q’s “Not So Silent Night” concert to see MKTO, American Idol finalist Alex Preston of New Hampshire and the Maine Youth Rock Orchestra.

Loyal Q fans got more than their money’s worth and were treated to more than three hours of fantastic music. What follows is an image gallery shot by our own Karen Middleton that captures the real essence of what was a great night!

Happy Holidays!
