Literally gripping the arms of my seat, I was not the only one propelled on this rollercoaster of delightful music.

The Sarasota Orchestra was brimming with bubbling energy...

Written byHerald Tribune

A lifetime of musical moments, cinematic in scope, gave every section of the orchestra a leading role at one time or another. Chief among them was the virtuosic solo of concertmaster Daniel Jordan.

Written byHerald Tribune

It was a thrill ride resulting in an explosion of audience enthusiasm.
