An abundance of riches awaits the listener in this program featuring works for large ensembles. Dutch composer Jan Koetsier's work challenges the power and agility of today’s brass instruments as ten master players bring this tuneful work to life. Jacques Ibert’s Trio for Violin, Cello and Harp provides moments of wit and ethereal repose. Finally, nine string players take the stage for Dvořák’s Serenade for Strings, one of the sunniest the Czech master ever penned.

Sunday After-Concert Reception: Join us after the Sunday performance for a meet and greet with Sarasota Orchestra musicians performing on this concert. Beverages will be available for purchase.

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

Written byHerald Tribune

 Every section and soloist within the orchestra played their role with strength and beauty; every tree proud and tall. Tali served as an excellent guide leading the forces with assured confidence. The overall sound was lush and, yes, intense just where it needed to be.

 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.  

Written byThe Observer

 Andrew Lane, the Orchestra’s Principal Pops Conductor, knows how to program a winning event and this concert had something for everyone. It also brought in a whole new audience that seemed dazzled by the performances.  

Written byThe Observer

 The Sarasota Orchestra played a program this past weekend filled with so much color, it was like visiting the Louvre.  

Written byHerald Tribune

 The performance... was exceptional, bringing new and stunning sonorities from a larger than usual Sarasota Orchestra under the dynamic leadership of Anu Tali.
