Experienced classical musicians interested in joining the Midcoast Symphony Orchestra for the upcoming 2023/24 season are urged to schedule an audition.

The Midcoast Symphony Orchestra performs four concerts each season at both the Orion Performing Arts Center, Topsham, and the Franco Center in Lewiston.

The Midcoast Symphony Orchestra is a community orchestra founded in 1990. Started as a chamber orchestra, there are now more than 80 members who performs a full range of orchestral literature from the classical to modern periods. A community-based organization, the orchestra draws players and audiences from south of Portland to Rockland along the coast, and inland from Augusta to the Lewiston-Auburn area. Its members all volunteer their time to practice and perform. Under the guidance of Music Director Rohan Smith, the orchestra continues to attract ever more professional-caliber musicians and award-winning guest artists.

The upcoming season starts in September. Those interested should call 207-315-1712 or email to set up an audition. For more information on the orchestra go to
