The Orchestra of the Eastern Shore, founded in Onancock, Virginia in 1999 by Dr. Peter Dundon, is a string orchestra concentrating on classical repertoire with musicians drawn from surrounding Eastern Shore communities. The Orchestra was incorporated in 2004 and awarded non-profit 501c3 status the following year.

Dr. Paul Kim has been the Orchestra's music director since September 2014. Dr. Kim is a professional conductor, violinist, and composer with broad musical interests. He has led the Orchestra for two seasons, also performing as soloist with his wife, Rebecca. Dr. Kim is an assistant professor of music at Old Dominion University in Norfolk; he succeeded Lee Jordan-Anders, who retired after five years as music director.

The Orchestra regularly presents winter and spring concerts in Accomack and Northampton Counties, including two December 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.
