The 2021 Season Is Coming!

Another exciting season will be announced in the next few weeks. Watch your mail for our superb lineup and ticket reservation information.

For 75 years, the Sarasota Concert Association has brought internationally renowned symphony orchestras, chamber ensembles and soloists to our region. We foster greater appreciation for world-class classical music at an affordable price through two engaging series: The Great Performers Series and the Music Matinee Series.

Great Performers Series

Great Performers Series

The Great Performers Series brings the world’s most renowned classical musicians to perform in Sarasota during a six-concert season, January through March, at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall and Riverview Performing Arts Center. 

Music Matinee Series

This free community outreach program features accomplished, regional musicians who perform a vast array of musical styles. Some performers are seasoned artists, others are rising stars—but each brings the high caliber of musicianship that represents the best of our area. The concerts are presented December through April, at the Beatrice Friedman Symphony Center.
