In Residence at the Lakeside Performing Arts Center in Ashtabula, Ohio, the Ashtabula Area Orchestra attracts musicians from all over Northeast Ohio and Northwestern Pennsylvania. We have regular players join us from as far away as Euclid, Youngstown, Madison, Cleveland Heights, Mentor, Chardon and across the state line in Meadville and Sharon. We welcome musicians from other community, college and high school orchestras. We also invite those of you who used to play back in high school or college, to pick up your instrument again and play with a full symphony orchestra in a fun, low-pressure environment. Need to brush up with some instrumental lessons? Many of our members offer lessons… contact us and we will connect you.
