Musically Speaking

We are delighted to announce our new virtual concert series, “Musically Speaking.” This free, three-concert series features preeminent classical musicians in unique performances, highlighted by informal conversations moderated by Charles Turon, a musician and educator. The artists will discuss the music they will perform, how they have spent their time during the pandemic, and other interesting insights, shared exclusively with our Sarasota audiences. The concerts can be enjoyed at home and will be available for seven days for unlimited viewing after the initial broadcast date.
