A constituent member of Eastport Arts Center, the PBSO provides a place for musicians to come together to meet other musicians and to improve their skills. Bringing classical music to Washington County and New Brunswick, the orchestra is conducted by Music Director Trond Saeverud and Assistant Conductor Greg Biss.
