October 28, 2022 | Members Meeting

These gatherings bring together like-minded people who share the love of great music and have an interest in enhancing their orchestra experience. Our opening season meeting welcomes Joseph McKenna, Sarasota Orchestra’s president and CEO, who will share the Orchestra’s plans for the path forward following the untimely passing of Music Director Bramwell Tovey. Concertmaster Dan Jordan will also be on hand to talk about how observing and listening to an orchestra rehearsal can heighten your appreciation of a concert performance.
