More with Midcoast
More with Midcoast is MSO's series of education and community engagement programs.
Featured are these free events for our concert patrons:
- Intermission Interludes: young performers at intermission of our Saturday concerts at the Gendron Franco Center
- Pre-Concert Presentations: 30-minute programs to inform and inspire before the 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.) The first winner performed as guest artist at MSO's October, 2018, concert series.
