About Us

The Ashtabula Area Orchestra serves a unique purpose in our community. Founded in 1982, we present live orchestral music and provide opportunities for local and regional musicians to perform.  Our orchestra makes very efficient use of our donated funds and work hard to provide the highest quality musical performances and educational events for our community.
