Kate Gray and Beth Almquist: Midcoast Symphony Orchestra
The Midcoast Symphony Orchestra will present “Celebration Pops” at 7:00 PM on Saturday, March 17th, at the Franco Center in Lewiston and at 2:30 PM on Sunday, March 18th, at the Orion Center in Topsham. Guest conductor Yoichi Udagawa will lead the orchestra in a concert of light classics and movie music, with guest pianist Charles Floyd performing George Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue.” At the intermission for the Lewiston concert, the Youth Orchestra of Lewiston-Auburn will perform. Before the Topsham concert, orchestra members will offer “Meet the Instruments,” a chance for people of all
ages to try their hand at a variety of instruments, just for the fun of it or as possible prelude to further study.
