Impact Statement

The Perlman Music Program/Suncoast encourages artistic development and camaraderie among young international string musicians via a nurturing, non-competitive and world-renowned music education program. PMP/Suncoast ensures its continued growth and viability through cultivating regional and national participation and support by offering premier cultural and educational outreach programs, world-class performances, and events in Sarasota and its surrounding communities.

2014-2015 Season:

  • The 11th Annual PMP Sarasota Winter Residency (Dec 21, 2014 - Jan 3, 2015). The community attended 18 free musical events in support of 36 young international string musicians (ages 12-20+), students of The Perlman Music Program (NY). The 2nd Annual Super Strings (Sept 2014 - Jan 2015) brought Florida string musicians (ages 10-18) to participate in workshops and then play the Bach Double with the PMP String Orchestra under the baton of Itzhak Perlman. More than 1,000 people attended the event on Jan 2, 2015 at the Sarasota Opera House.
  • The 2014-2015 Education Outreach Program (Multi-day, in-school experiences in Oct, Feb, and May) brought PMP alumni to 12 Sarasota and Manatee County schools, 1,600 students, and 130 teachers. Thanks to the generosity of our contributors, the artists also performed free and low-cost community recitals. New This Year! Classical WSMR hosted PMP alumni for 4 live radio broadcasts, each performing for 80,000 listeners.
  • New! 2014-2015 Hear & Now Concert Series (Dec 4, Jan 3, and Apr 19) showcased the next generation of world-class musicians, PMP students and alumni who are establishing successful performance careers, to regional residents and visitors at ticketed events held at the Sarasota Opera House.

For 2015-2016, PMP/Suncoast strives to broaden our reach with the goal of building community through music. We are increasing the number of days of education outreach and adding an additional performance in Venice to our concert series.

Background Statement
The Perlman Music Program/Suncoast was established in Florida in May 2008 as an independent non-profit organization with the mission to provide operational stability and funding support for a permanent Sarasota Winter Residency for The Perlman Music Program.

Founded by Toby Perlman, and with world-renowned faculty members including her husband, internationally acclaimed violinist and conductor Itzhak Perlman, The Perlman Music Program augments its seven-week summer program for students (ages 12-18) and Chamber Music Workshop (ages 18-30) in Shelter Island, New York, with a 17-day intensive winter residency each December in Sarasota, Florida.

The PMP Sarasota Winter Residency provides valuable enrichment and performance opportunities for the international young musicians (ages 12-20+) being nurtured in this unique experience, and a rich opportunity for community audiences to experience the magic of musical mentoring through approximately 20 free public events on the campus of the University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee. Featured during one of the public events is Super Stringsa group of young violinists from Sarasota and Manatee counties and around Florida who come together to play under the baton of Itzhak Perlman and with the PMP Orchestra. The culmination of the winter residency is the Celebration Concert at the Sarasota Opera House featuring Itzhak Perlman directing the PMP String Orchestra and Patrick Romano leading the PMP Chorus. 

The Perlman Music Program/Suncoast has expanded its program offerings beyond the winter residency to bring alumni of The Perlman Music Program back to Southwest Florida throughout the year:

  • The Education Outreach Program (PMP Alumni: In Schools) brings alumni into Sarasota and Manatee county schools to serve as teaching and performing artists in support of recruitment, training, and inspiration in school orchestra programs and music classes. These visits are offered free of charge to elementary, middle, and high schools. Many Title 1 schools are included in the program. 
  • PMP Alumni: Around Town provide low-cost and free recitals for the public in a variety of community venues. 
  • PMP Alumni: In Concert is the newest addition, featuring professional young artists in a concert series presented at the Sarasota Opera House and Venice Performing Arts Center.

Statement from the Board Chair/Board President
Statement from the CEO/Executive Director
The impact of The Perlman Music Program/Suncoast is best expressed by those participating in these music education programs:
 
"The Ariel String Quartet changed my view of classical music."
- 5th grade student from Cranberry Elementary School 
 
"It's a nice experience to have talented musicians come and share what they do best."
- Booker High School Student
 
"The Perlman Music Program has been the single most important part of my musical development. It is impossible for me to separate my thinking about music from PMP. I am only 21, but the Perlmans have been a vital part of my life for nearly half of it. As I get older, I am more deeply in awe of and thankful for Toby and Itzhak's dedication, love, and genius.  The music world is a better place. I believe that the Perlmans are creating a legacy that will improve music education for generations to come."
- PMP Sarasota Winter Residency student
 
"The significance of the winter residency in a young musician's life is unparalleled. The 17 days of this program is the equivalent of 6 months of private practice and professional training."
- Itzhak Perlman
 
"I attended The Perlman Music Program/Suncoast's in-school program with my students and it was an incredible experience! The [PMP alumni] musicians were personable, using humor and personal stories to explain the instruments and relevant experiences that supported the musical pieces. The Perlman Music Program/Suncoast is truly a gift to our community and students. We are lucky to have the support of donors who want to support the arts within the schools."
- Dr. Barbara Shirley, Principal, Alta Vista Elementary School
 
Programs
Description
The Perlman Music Program (PMP) has held a winter residency in Sarasota since 2004. In 2008, The Perlman Music Program/Suncoast (PMP/Suncoast) was founded to create a permanent home for the program in Southwest Florida.
 
The PMP Sarasota Winter Residency, led by internationally acclaimed violinist and conductor, Itzhak Perlman, and his wife and founder, Toby Perlman, provides a uniquely intensive 17-day residency for 35 exceptionally talented young musicians (ages 12-20+) participating in New York's internationally renowned Perlman Music Program. The winter residency brings these gifted musicians to Sarasota to train and perform each December. The goals are to expose the residents and visitors of Southwest Florida to world-class musicians and to introduce the general public to classical music by providing daily rehearsals and master classes free of charge. PMP/Suncoast, in partnership with University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee, has hosted 100,000+ audience members on campus.
Budget $350,000
Category Arts, Culture & Humanities, General/Other Music Festivals
Program Linked to Organizational Strategy Yes
Population Served US& International K-12 (5-19 years) Adults
Short Term Success More than 12,000 attend Winter Residency events each season.
Long Term Success
Though The Perlman Music Program/Suncoast was founded in May 2008, The Perlman Music Program Sarasota Winter Residency has been presented in Southwest Florida since 2004 (2015-2016 is the 12th Season). The winter residency trains international students (ages 12-20+) who are considered to be the next generation of concert artists and invites all ages of the public to attend free events, inspiring and developing future audiences.
 
Strong community-based partnership with USF Sarasota-Manatee has made the presentation of the winter residency to 100,000+ people possible.
 
The annual success of the winter residency has enabled expansion of the PMP/Suncoast programming serving Southwest Florida.
Program Success Monitoring
Toby and Itzhak Perlman oversee artistic needs of the PMP Sarasota Winter Residency and PMP student participants; The Perlman Music Program/Suncoast Board and staff are responsible for fundraising and coordinating all logistics for food, housing, local transportation, and all public and special events including ticket distribution, venue details, coordinating volunteers, etc.
 
PMP receives student feedback, and PMP/Suncoast gathers community feedback through anonymous surveys.
Program Success Examples
From the 2014-2015 season:

"How fortunate we are that Sarasota offers this extraordinary venture."
 
"This is my 10th year of attendance. I schedule other things around the winter schedule so as not to miss out on programs. Thank you for providing such great music."
 
"We not only enjoy the caliber of playing but to see the joy Toby Perlman has about the program and the kids is heartwarming. The Perlmans have created such an extraordinary environment for these kids. It is truly amazing." 
 
Our success is also evidenced by these facts:
  • We are planning for the 12th annual PMP Sarasota Winter Residency.
  • More than 12,000 visitors and residents of Southwest Florida attend the approximately 20 free events.
  • Ongoing involvement and dedication of internationally acclaimed faculty including concert violinist and conductor, Itzhak Perlman, and his wife and founder of PMP, Toby Perlman. Of special note, both Mr. and Mrs. Perlman gift their time and service in-kind.
Description

PMP Alumni: In Schools provides educational performances in Sarasota and Manatee schools by alumni of PMP. These highly skilled musicians visit local schools and work as teaching artists to enhance existing music education in schools, encouraging and supporting students through hands-on training in orchestra classes. In addition, school assembly performances engage students as a means of recruitment into existing school orchestra programs and to inspire an appreciation of classical music.

PMP Alumni: Around Town brings PMP alumni into community venues for similar educational experiences for adults. The goal is to provide as many people as possible with access to world-class musical performances. During the weeks that the musicians are in the schools, free and low-cost performances are held at different public venues in Sarasota and Manatee counties, maximizing PMP/Suncoast’s outreach and creating new audiences for the next generation of concert artists that trained with PMP.

Population Served K-12 (5-19 years) Adults
Short Term Success In 2014-2015 PMP Alumni: In Schools reached more than 1600 students and 130 teachers at a dozen schools in Sarasota and Manatee Counties. PMP Alumni: Around Town took the musicians to such varied venues as Marie Selby Botanical Gardens and the Herald-Tribune building. The PMP Alumni: Around Town program reached over 545 adults, 320,000 radio listeners, plus the hundreds of attendees of the Closing Ceremony of the Sarasota-Bradenton Modern Pentathlon World Cup I.
Long Term Success
We receive immediate feedback from students and teachers after each PMP Alumni: In Schools program presented, which is overwhelmingly positive, but the greatest long-term testament to our program is that teachers with whom we have worked since the program's inception continue to invite us back.
 
While PMP Alumni: Around Town is a newer program, we already receive invitations to return to community venues where we have performed.
Program Success Monitoring At each school, the students fill out surveys specifically asking what they learned and how the outreach experience will affect their music classroom experience.
Program Success Examples
From the 2015-2016 in-school program:
 
"At first I didn't know what to play in Orchestra, but now I want to play the viola."
- Laurel Nokomis School student
 
"I liked how [the musicians] were focused and how graceful the music sounded. I would LOVE more visits and shows. This visit made my love for music stronger."
- Bayshore Elementary School student
 
"I liked not only listening to the performance, but learning new concepts/ideas for better practice and performance quality."
- Palmetto High School student
 
Our success is also evidenced by the fact that PMP Alumni: In Schools (a.k.a. Education Outreach Program) is entering its seventh year and remains free to schools, being fully underwritten by generous supporters. It is also unique in that PMP alumni, young professional musicians often not yet 30 years old, are personally selected by Toby and Itzhak Perlman to visit entire grade levels of students and orchestra classrooms to serve and inspire the youth of Sarasota and Manatee counties.
Description

The Perlman Music Program/Suncoast strives to inspire the next generation of concert artists, educators, and audiences through education programs, community recitals and formal concerts.

PMP Alumni: In Concert is a 3-part concert series to be held in 2015-2016 at the Sarasota Opera House and Venice Performing Arts Center. The series will give audiences an opportunity to experience the most exciting young musicians on the concert scene. The young artists, trained by The Perlman Music Program, are selected by Toby and Itzhak Perlman to perform these professional concerts.

PMP/Suncoast strives to instill a love of classical music in new audiences and provide existing classical music lovers with high caliber concerts. By featuring alumni in the concerts, PMP/Suncoast hopes to show the correlation between training young musicians through the annual PMP Sarasota Winter Residency and then having exciting young professional musicians return to Sarasota to perform.

Budget $65,000
Category Arts, Culture & Humanities, General/Other Musical Performances
Program Linked to Organizational Strategy Yes
Population Served Adults K-12 (5-19 years)
Short Term Success
The 2014-2015 series brought hundreds of audience members to support the musicians - all PMP alumni - while exposing audiences to classical music performed by the highest caliber musicians. The artists, personally selected by Toby and Itzhak Perlman, concertize around the world in major concert halls and intimate venues, receiving high acclaim wherever they perform.
 
The repertoire is the artists' choice; last season one of the pieces selected was very modern and drew a strong response from the audience. Some loved it while others disliked it, but regardless of the response, PMP/Suncoast was able to share with a music-loving audience something new and different, which we consider a success!
Long Term Success
By bringing high caliber artists to the region for this series, PMP/Suncoast continues to support Sarasota's reputation as one of the premier arts and cultural centers in Florida.
 
The concert series also encourages young people to learn and develop an appreciation of classical music. PMP/Suncoast provides accessibility for young people by offering a promotion to make the series affordable for families: buy one regular-priced adult ticket, get one student ticket (up to age 18) for $5.
Program Success Monitoring

The success of the project will be based on these criteria: meeting and exceeding revenue goals through successful tickets sales, concert sponsorships, and grant awards; positive media reviews; and direct feedback from the artists and audiences.

Program Success Examples

The idea of a concert series stemmed from a very successful collaborative event in 2013 with the Jewish Federation of Sarasota-Manatee called Israel@65, which featured a concert with PMP alumni performing alongside their mentor, world-renowned violinist and conductor Itzhak Perlman. The next year, PMP/Suncoast hosted an informal concert series (a total of six concerts) highlighting the complete Beethoven cycle of string quartets (16 compositions), performed by PMP alumni and well-received by audiences.

PMP Alumni: In Concert will only be the second formal concert series presented by PMP/Suncoast, and as with most business models, it usually takes a few years to establish a successful program. While we heard great feedback from audience members in year one, in the 2015-2016 Season we anticipate an increase of ticket sales and an increase of awareness of the series.
Description
Super Strings, presented as part of an orchestra rehearsal of the winter residency, enables young string musicians from around Florida to play as a group of soloists with the PMP String Orchestra under the baton of Itzhak Perlman. More than 1,000 people attended the event at the Sarasota Opera House on January 2, 2015, when the violin and viola students (ages 10-18) played one of the solo lines of Johann Sebastian Bach's Concerto for Two Violins in D minor.
 
All Super Strings musicians submit applications, audition, and participate in two preparatory workshops led by Sarasota-based music educators before performing as a group.
 
For 2015-2016, Super Strings will play movement 1 of Antonio Vivaldi's Concerto in A minor for Two Violins. Applications to participate are accepted until August 31, 2015, with auditions on September 12 and 19 and workshops on October 17 and November 14. The final performance will be held in late December on stage in the performance tent at USF Sarasota-Manatee.

Short Term Success Last year's Super Strings performance drew over 1000 audience members to the Sarasota Opera House on January 2, 2015, to see young Florida musicians (age 8-18) perform alongside the PMP String Orchestra under the baton of Itzhak Perlman.
Long Term Success Going on its third year, Super Strings receives repeat applicants who participated in past programs. Students are becoming comfortable with the process and appreciate playing as a group of soloists in a noncompetitive environment (i.e. there are no rankings; all are considered equal players).
Program Success Monitoring Aside from positive feedback, we know the program is working due to the spread of its popularity outside of Sarasota and Manatee Counties; it now draws applicants from around the entire state of Florida! The number of participants increased from 24 in year one to 34 in year two, and more applicants are anticipated in year three.
Program Success Examples
"Wow!!! I am so pleased for Salome...she practiced so much that she would fall asleep with the violin. When not using the bow, she would run her fingers over the strings constantly...if for no other reason, she has learnt to work hard to achieve her goal. And I thank you for this opportunity."
- Parent of Super Strings student who participated
in both the 2013-2014 and 2014-2015 programs

Management Comments by Organization
The Perlman Music Program/Suncoast is a young not-for-profit arts organization run by an active board of trustees, three full-time staff members, a part-time bookkeeper, a team of volunteers, and limited outsourcing to marketing and graphic design professionals.
 
With only three full-time staff members, all work closely as a team. Though at any time staff members might be asked to help brainstorm an idea or pitch-in on the most time-sensitive item, general responsibilities include:
  • executive director heads operations (administrative and programs), oversees finances, contracts artists and vendors, manages IT, builds/updates website, collaborates with the marketing and graphic design professionals, and works closely with the board chair and board committees
  • development director focuses on all fundraising efforts and special events, writes grants, communicates with donors (including creating and mailing sponsorship pieces, invitations, and thank you letters), engages media sponsorships, and compiles the program book (ads, editorial pieces, etc.)
  • education/marketing coordinates the Education Outreach Program (PMP Alumni: In Schools), is the main contact for Super Strings, serves as the in-house photographer and designer, creates video podcasts, proofreads, manages social media (Facebook, Twitter, and e-blasts), and populates online community calendar listings
Though the organization remains in business through managing revenues, expenses, and creative community-based partnerships, PMP/Suncoast strives to achieve overall sustainability through building reserves and, ultimately, endowment funds.
 
Meanwhile, plans for 2015-2016 Season programs are well underway and include:
  • 12th annual PMP Sarasota Winter Residency, featuring PMP students
  • 7th Education Outreach Program (New name: PMP Alumni: In Schools)
  • PMP Alumni: Around Town, the new name for the 4th annual Emerging Artists Performance Series
  • PMP Alumni: In Concert, formerly known as the Hear & Now Concerts established in the 2014-2015 Season

Current income and expense projections do not include the more than $250,000 annual in-kind gifts.  The major portion of annual in-kind gifts is directly attributed to PMP/Suncoast's partnership with USF Sarasota-Manatee: use of 26 rooms for 24-hours a day during the 17-day PMP Sarasota Winter Residency, associated electricity and utilities, and year-round office space in a USF Sarasota-Manatee annex building. The balance of in-kind gifts is attributed to media sponsorships with the Herald-Tribune Media Group, WUSF and WSMR Radio, ABC-7, Bright House Networks, Manatee Educational Television, and the Observer Group.
 
For the 2015-2016 Season, cash expenses for the PMP Sarasota Winter Residency total $350,000 and include: 
  • $212,000 for direct program expenses (less fundraising)
  • $96,000 for administrative and support staff (less development/fundraising)
  • $42,000 for advertising and marketing
