Welcome to Sarasota Concert Band…
…a year-round professional musical ensemble bringing great music to Southwest Florida
Just as books are the culture of the mind and art is the culture of the eyes … music is the culture of the heart. It enlivens humanity. It gets in touch with emotions, the breath of life.
Sarasota Concert Band is the preeminent symphonic band in Sarasota and Manatee Counties. As a nonprofit corporation, our purpose is to promote good band literature with concerts that showcase music in superior performances.
We work to keep this genre alive and well-understood. We entertain community members with event-related concerts, using themes to put on a show, occasionally integrating with other cultural arts. We help local students by offering opportunities to play, do volunteer work and compete for scholarships. We provide fun and life enrichment for our musicians and the community.
