Lincoln Academy’s new String Orchestra gave its first-ever performance on Thursday, January 25, at Schooner Cove in Damariscotta. The ensemble presented a 30-minute program of classical music with a finale of fiddle tunes. The audience of residents welcomed the group warmly, wanted to know more about the students, and chatted with them after the performance.
