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 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 String 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.

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 [PMP alumni] 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.

Program Linked to Organizational Strategy Yes
Population Served US& International K-12 (5-19 years) Adults
Short Term Success More than 10,000 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 (2016-2017 is the 13th 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.
 
"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." 
Program Success Examples
Our success is evidenced by these facts:
  • PMP/Suncoast is planning for the 13th annual PMP Sarasota Winter Residency.
  • More than 10,000 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.
  • Feedback from PMP students and PMP/Suncoast donors that they count down the days to the start of the next winter residency.
  • Of special note, both Mr. and Mrs. Perlman gift their time and service in-kind.
  • USF Sarasota-Manatee remains an invaluable partner in presenting this annual program and supporting The Perlman Music Program/Suncoast. Their in-kind gift includes use of the campus (17-day winter residency), dedicated office space (year-round), and more.
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 to inspire an appreciation of classical music and support recruitment into existing school music programs.

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 various 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.

Budget $55,000
Category Arts, Culture & Humanities, General/Other Music Instruction
Program Linked to Organizational Strategy Yes
Population Served K-12 (5-19 years) Adults
Short Term Success
In 2015-2016 PMP Alumni: In Schools performed 17 events, reaching more than 850 students and 80 teachers at 13 schools and 2 afterschool programs in Sarasota and Manatee Counties.
 
PMP Alumni: Around Town program reached more than 2,600 audience members in addition to 80,000+ via TV, radio, and the Internet. The musicians performed at a variety of venues including:
  • Marie Selby Botanical Gardens
  • ABC 7 Suncoast View (TV)
  • Bethel Christian Methodist Episcopal Church
  • Kobernick House
  • Classical WSMR (Radio)
  • Modern Pentathlon World Cup Finals 
  • Herald-Tribune building (90th Anniversary Celebration)
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. Whereas this is considered a mark of success, PMP/Suncoast remains greatly interested in reaching new and lesser served audiences each season.
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. Teachers are asked to provide feedback about the program.
PMP/Suncoast also works closely with PMP alumni to support their success in reaching and inspiring our local students through their in school performances. 
 
 
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 eighth 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
Super Strings, presented as part of an orchestra rehearsal of the winter residency, enables young string musicians (ages 8-18) from around Florida to play as a group of soloists with the PMP String Orchestra under the baton of Itzhak Perlman. 
 
All Super Strings musicians submit applications, audition, and participate in a preparatory workshop led by Sarasota-based music educators before performing as a group.
 
For 2016-2017, students are asked to prepare movement 3 of J.S. Bach's Concerto for Two Violins in D minor. For sheet music, application, and program information, visit: www.PMPSuncoast.org/superstrings/.
  • Applications and video audition submissions are due September 5
  • Invitations to participate are sent out in early October
  • Preparatory Workshop is on November 12
  • Final performance will be held on stage in the performance tent at USF Sarasota-Manatee in late December
Budget $12,000
Category Arts, Culture & Humanities, General/Other Music Instruction
Program Linked to Organizational Strategy Yes
Population Served K-12 (5-19 years) Adults
Short Term Success
For 2015-2016, 42 Super Strings participants performed movement 1 of Antonio Vivaldi's Concerto in A minor for Two Violins from memory. Their ages ranged from 8 to 18 and they represented 29 different schools (13 counties) from around Florida.
Long Term Success Now entering it's fourth 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). More than 100 Florida students have participated in the Super Strings program.
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

Program Comments by Organization
The Perlman Music Program/Suncoast strives to inspire the next generation of concert artists, educators, and audiences. By providing world-class young musicians with opportunities to perform, interact, and train in Sarasota and Manatee counties, PMP/Suncoast is able to inspire all three aspects of classical music participants: students, educators, and audiences.

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.)
  • Special Projects Associate focuses on fundraising and marketing projects and activities and works closely with both the development director and executive director.
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 2016-2017 Season programs are well underway and include:
  • PMP Sarasota Winter Residency, featuring PMP students
  • PMP Alumni: In Schools
  • PMP Alumni: Around Town

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
