Looking for an Orchestra to Play In?
There is a nothing like playing with other musicians. Fortunately there is a Damariscotta-based orchestra for you to play in. Check out Seacoast Youth and Community Orchestras to find a group that fits your skills. This orchestra is not related to the Preston Music Studio other than I am a fan.
For more advanced players, the Midcoast Symphony Orchestra might be your style.
