The Orchestra of the Eastern Shore, founded in Onancock, Virginia in 1999, is a chamber orchestra concentrating in classical repertoire. Musicians are drawn from surrounding Eastern Shore communities and include professional educators, community members, and students.

Dr. Paul Kim has been the Orchestra's music director since 2014. Also serving as director of orchestral activities at Old Dominion University, Dr. Kim is a professional conductor, violinist, and composer with broad musical interests. He succeeded Lee Jordan-Anders, who retired after serving five years as music director. The Orchestra was founded and originally directed by Dr. Peter Dundon. The Orchestra was incorporated in 2004 and awarded non-profit 501c3 status the following year.

The Orchestra regularly presents fall, winter, and spring concerts in Accomack and Northampton Counties, including participation in the annual Christmas in Onancock concert in December and biannual Messiah sing-alongs. Concerts are free; donations welcome. Orchestra musicians are also available to play for church services, weddings, and private parties. The Orchestra welcomes new members of all orchestral instruments to audition throughout the year.
