In January, 2010, Seaside Symphony Orchestra performed at the popular Music by the Sea Festival in Sandgate. They performed several works by local composers to a very appreciative audience. The concert exhibited local talent both in composition and in performance.

Andre Reginato wrote and performed his guitar concerto, Sarah Hopkins wrote and also performed "Honour the Earth as your Mother". Tom Millar composed the choral work "The Spirit of the Wind" with the newly formed Festival Choir, conducted by Jenni Lake. Other local compositions included works by Timo Jarvela and John Gibbs.
