A Reimagined Season of Concerts at Holley Hall

Sarasota Orchestra announces a reimagined season that brings the joy and inspiration of classical and pops music to the community while maintaining health and safety for our patrons, musicians, staff, and volunteers.

Concerts will be streamed for at-home viewing. 

At a time when so many of us are yearning for community and hungry for the energy and inspiration that great music can bring, we consider it a privilege to connect through our artform.

Jeffrey Kahane, Artistic Advisor

Responsibility and flexibility guided the planning of our reimagined 2020-2021 season. The health and safety of our audience, musicians, staff, and volunteers was the focus of this pandemic-impacted season.

Reviews

Written byHerald Tribune

 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.  

Written byHerald Tribune

 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.
