Sarasota Orchestra Seeks a New Home
The Sarasota Orchestra has announced plans to seek a new home in the city of Sarasota. The orchestra has been a part of Sarasota’s bayfront for nearly 70 years, occupying its current location on North Tamiami Trail since 1952. The organization cited poor acoustics and cramped spaces at the Beatrice Friedman Symphony Center as reasons to search for a new home.
Representatives of the orchestra made the announcement recently during a presentation to the City Commission about the city’s bayfront redevelopment project, known simply as The Bay. The decision to move was made after designers of The Bay revealed plans for the 53-acre site that do not include the orchestra’s symphony center. Established in 1949, Sarasota Orchestra is Florida’s oldest continuing orchestra and performs more than 100 concerts annually with 80 members.
