More with Midcoast
More with Midcoast is MSO's series of education and community engagement programs. They are supported by donations from businesses, individuals, and grants.
Featured are these free events for our concert patrons:
- Intermission Saturdays: local youth music groups and others entertain during intermissions at the Gendron Franco Center
- Pre-Concert Sundays: 30-minute programs to inform and inspire before MSO concerts at Orion Performing Arts Center
We also do special events for students and the community, including:
- After-School Music: MSO musicians visit after-school programs to demonstrate music being played "live"*
- Small-group performances in varied venues, from retirement communities to the Portland Sea Dogs! See our Facebook page for examples.
- Judith Elser Concerto Competition for Maine college music students (see more.)
