About Us

The Midcoast Symphony is a community orchestra founded in 1990. Started as a chamber orchestra, we now have over 80 members on our roster. We continue to grow under the baton of Rohan Smith, bringing top-notch performances to the Orion Center in Topsham and the Gendron Franco Center in Lewiston. Our members are volunteer players: we are teachers, doctors, homemakers, business people, retired people, professional musicians, and a variety of other occupations, and we hail from the midcoast, Lewiston-Auburn, and Portland regions. Our repertory ranges from Mozart and Haydn to recently written music, and we are excited to connect further with audiences and talented players from our state.

In addition to our regular concerts, we have “More with Midcoast,” education and community engagement programs that support our goal to contribute significantly to the cultural life of midcoast and central Maine.

The orchestra welcomes membership inquiries from talented musicians and also community residents who would like to join our orchestra auxiliary group, FRIENDS of MSO. Please contact Ray Libby, orchestra manager, at info@midcoastsymphony.org or (207) 315-1712.
