The Southern Maine Symphony Orchestra is a full-sized symphony orchestra comprised of USM students and talented members of the community who audition for membership.

The orchestra performs challenging, professional level repertoire from all periods. Recently performed pieces include: Mahler's Fifth Symphony, Mozart's Requiem with a 250 voice choir, Schubert's Unfinished Symphony, and a fully staged production of Strauss' opera Die Fledermaus in collaboration with the USM Department of Theatre. 

The orchestra sponsors a biennial concerto competition and frequently collaborates with the chorus on large scale choral works. In addition, professional soloists of the highest caliber are often engaged to perform with the orchestra.
