Maestro Teddy Abrams makes his Sarasota debut in a program of time-treasured works and brilliant American music. Abrams composed Overture in Sonata Form as a genre-defying wonder. Pianist Conrad Tao performs Beethoven's treasured Piano Concerto No. 1. Petrichor by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Ellen Reid surrounds the audience in sound. The program concludes with Copland's soaring ballet music from Appalachian Spring and its uplifting Shaker tune "Simple Gifts."

 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

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