Owner description: For more than 60 years, the Sarasota Orchestra has been entertaining music lovers from around the region, and visitors from around the world. The 80-member Orchestra performs more than 100 classical, pops and family concerts each year, and thrives as the oldest continuing orchestra in the state of Florida. In 2008 the organization unveiled a new name and logo with a package that offers new series, new concerts and a whole new way to experience live music, along with the timeless classics.An arts leader in the community, the Sarasota Orchestra has a dual mission, dedicated to exquisite performance and first-class musical education. The Sarasota Orchestra's acclaimed music education program includes the 50-year-old Youth Orchestra, which features five ensembles – the most advanced of which, The Youth Philharmonic, made its Carnegie Hall debut in 2008. The Sarasota Orchestra also offers music lessons for students of all ages and abilities, sponsors multiple community-outreach programs and is the parent program of the Sarasota Music Festival.

“Great music close to home.”
Reviewed 23 January 2013

S O gives such varied and professional concerts that our cultural appetites are fulfilled.
Live performances are so wonderful, watching the dedicated artists is as important t as listening to the beautiful sounds they produce. The ticket prices are reasonable as well.

“A wonderful second tier symphony orchestra”
Reviewed 17 December 2012

We have been subscribers for about 20 years. We have heard many of the world's great orchestras. The growth in the quality of this orchestra is amazing for such a small market. They are now searching for a new permanent conductor, and we hope that whoever gets the post will continue with the growth and developement
