Sarasota Orchestra wind and brass musicians to perform at outdoor venues in new series, Dec. 6-Apr. 25

Posted on: December 4, 2020

Beginning on December 6, wind and brass musicians from the Sarasota Orchestra will perform in eleven outdoor chamber-music concerts as part of a new series entitled “On the Road with SO: Parks & Partners” at public parks and other venues in Sarasota and Manatee counties. Concerts will take place at 2:30 p.m. at Nathan Benderson Park (Dec. 6, Jan. 10, March 21); the Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast/Bay Preserve at Osprey (Jan. 10, Feb. 21, Apr. 25), G.T. Bray Park (Jan. 24, March 21); Marie Selby Botanical Gardens (Jan. 24, Feb. 7); and the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art (Feb. 21). In announcing the concerts, the orchestra noted that the series “allows Sarasota Orchestra’s winds and brass musicians to safely shine.” Capacity at the outdoor venues will be limited to permit proper social distancing; admission is free except for Marie Selby Botanical Gardens and the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art, which charge entry fees for their grounds. Attendees are required to register to hold a space at performances.
