Sarasota Orchestra Season Programming

The Sarasota Orchestra concert season includes orchestra concerts, chamber orchestra events and chamber ensemble performances. Our programming specifically aims to attract new audiences with innovative programs, foster cultural tourism and strengthen the region’s cultural arts by presenting an array of traditional classics, light classics, pop programs and chamber music. The Sarasota Orchestra presents over 125 performances annually, which feature renowned guest artists from around the world.

The Sarasota Youth Orchestras are comprised of eight ensembles, from beginning strings to the advanced Youth Philharmonic. 330 students currently participate in the Youth Orchestra program. For two weeks in July, 250 area students participate in the Summer Music Camp. The camp meets every day and concludes with a recital for parents and the community. The annual Young Person’s Concerts engage nearly 9,000 fourth and fifth grade students from schools in the tri-county area in a flexible, twenty-six week, in-school preparation/study session, including a concert by the Sarasota Orchestra held at two professional performance venues.  Other outreach includes Orchestra musicians performing and coaching in area schools and community venues. The total number of children and family members served by the Sarasota Orchestra educational outreach each year is more than 10,000.

The Sarasota Music Festival is one of the premier chamber music festivals in the United States. We celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2014. For three weeks each June, we transform Sarasota County into a springboard for the training and promotion of outstanding college-aged musicians, while providing a performance platform for some of the world’s most distinguished chamber musicians and faculty. This three-week residency program selects approximately 60 Fellows each year from more than 400 applications, representing the world’s top colleges and music conservatories. Fellows receive individual and ensemble training, coaching and mentoring from a faculty roster of exceptional, world-famous professors, scholars and musicians. With a dual focus on education and performance, the Festival offers an intense daily schedule of chamber music, master classes, coaching sessions, public lectures, demonstrations, open rehearsals and concert performances.
