More with Midcoast
More with Midcoast is MSO's series of education and community engagement programs. They are supported by grants and donations from businesses and individuals.
Click to see the More with Midcoast events in our March, 2024, concert weekend.
These events accompany MSO's classical concerts:
- Intermission Saturdays: local youth music groups and others entertain during intermissions at the Franco Center concerts
- Pre-Concert Sundays: 30-minute programs 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 and preschools to demonstrate music being played "live"
- Small-group performances in varied venues, from retirement communities to the Portland Sea Dogs!
- Free outdoor summer concerts in nearby communities. See our Facebook page for examples.
- Judith Elser Concerto Competition for Maine college music students (see more.)
