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 (USFSM). Featured during one of the public events is Super Stringsa group of young string players from Sarasota and Manatee counties and around Florida who come together to play with the PMP String Orchestra under the baton of Itzhak Perlman. 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 and after-school programs 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 in Southwest Florida.
 
The PMP Sarasota Winter Residency, with a faculty including 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

Program Linked to Organizational Strategy Yes
Population Served US& International K-12 (5-19 years) Adults
Short Term Success Approximately 8,000-10,000 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 (2018-2019 is the 15th Season). The winter residency trains international string 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 PMP/Suncoast programming to serve Southwest Florida throughout the year.
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, marketing, 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 15th annual PMP Sarasota Winter Residency.
  • 8,000-10,000 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 for more than 10 years. 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. These highly skilled PMP Alumni musicians visit local schools as teaching artists to enhance existing music education in schools, encouraging and supporting students through performances with Q&A sessions 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 live 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

Program Linked to Organizational Strategy Yes
Population Served K-12 (5-19 years) Adults
Short Term Success
In 2016-2017, a total of 17 PMP Alumni (ages 23-27) visited SW Florida from 4 countries to perform:  
 
19 PMP Alumni: In Schools interactive performances, reaching more than 1,000 students at 13 public, private and special needs schools in Sarasota and Manatee counties.
 
38 PMP Alumni: Around Town performances, reaching more than 13,000 audience members in addition to those who experienced the programs via TV, radio, and the Internet. The musicians performed at a variety of venues including:
  • Marie Selby Botanical Gardens
  • The Ringling 
  • Ringling Galleries at Ringling College of Art & Design
  • Kobernick House at Aviva
  • Grand Bay 
  • Sarasota Classic Car Museum
  • Violins of Hope performances presented by Jewish Federation of Sarasota-Manatee
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
PMP Alumni: In Schools -- 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. 
 
PMP Alumni: Around Town -- Through collaborations with community venues, PMP/Suncoast is able to introduce new audiences to the exceptional artistry of The Perlman Music Program and cultivate new audiences (and repeat bookings) for future PMP Alumni performances.
These performances also support the developing careers of PMP Alumni as these young artists are able to perform for attentive and enthusiastic audiences who, in return, have shown to personally follow them on social media and attend future concerts.
Program Success Examples
Quotes from local students who attended 2017-2018 PMP Alumni: In-School performances:
  • "I liked learning about the instruments and hearing them because I've wanted to play an instrument for a while."
  • "I enjoyed the opportunity to see advanced performers and hear them talk about their experiences." 
  • "I feel that one day I will be able to pursue my career as a musician, just as the group did."
 
PMP Alumni: In Schools (a.k.a. Education Outreach Program) is in its 8th year and remains free to schools, being fully underwritten by generous supporters.
 
PMP Alumni: Around Town performances are becoming more in demand. New venues and collaborations are suggested each year by local PMP fans. These are presented for a low-priced ticket or are fully underwritten.
 
It is also unique that PMP alumni, young professional musicians in their 20s, are personally selected by Toby and Itzhak Perlman to perform outreach recitals for the public and for entire grade levels of students and orchestra classrooms.
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 side-by-side 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 2017-2018, students performed movement 1 of W. A. Mozart's "Eine Kleine Nachtmusik" for string orchestra.

  • Sheet music, application, and program information available online at www.PMPSuncoast.org/superstrings: May/June
  • Applications and video audition submissions: early September
  • Invitations to participate sent out: early October
  • Preparatory Workshop: late October / early November

Short Term Success
2014-2015:  42 Super Strings participants perform movement 1 of Antonio Vivaldi's Concerto in A minor for Two Violins from memory. (Ages 8 to 18; 13 counties)
 
2015-2016:  23 Super Strings participants perform movement 1 of Johann Sebastian Bach's Concerto in D Minor for Two Violins from memory. (Ages 9 to 18)
 
2016-2017:  19 Super Strings participants perform movement 3 of Johann Sebastian Bach's Concerto in D Minor for Two Violins from memory. (Ages 10 to 18) 
 
Past Super Strings programs have featured a group of soloists (playing violin or viola only) performing a composition with the PMP String Orchestra. New in 2017-2018, a side-by-side experience enables Florida-based string students (playing violin, viola, cello, or double bass) to play with the international PMP String Orchestra.
 
2017-2018:  54 Super Strings participants perform movement 1 of W. A. Mozart's "Eine Kleine Nachtmusik." (Ages 8 to 18; 14 counties)
Long Term Success
Now planning for the sixth year:
  • Super Strings still sees repeat applicants who participated in past programs (on violin and viola).  A few students have participated in all five Super Strings programs.
  • Repeat participants are due to students enjoying playing with like-minded, enthusiastic music students from around Florida in a noncompetitive environment (i.e. there are no rankings; all are considered equal players).
  • Increased interest is due to the change from solo (memorized) performance for only upper strings (violin and viola) to side-by-side (chamber ensemble) performance, including cello and bass.  
More than 150 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. In years three and four, increasingly more difficult violin concerto compositions were selected, so the number of Super String applicants decreased slightly. Rather than choosing a more difficult violin concerto or to repeat easier compositions (presented in prior Super Strings programs), the side-by-side performance concept was approved by Toby and Itzhak Perlman. PMP/Suncoast suggested a couple of pieces and the Perlmans chose Mozart's Eine Kleine Nachtmusik. What was most surprising after the performance is that the Perlmans were so impressed with the level of the Super Strings' playing that they have requested the "side-by-side" concept return next year (2018-2019) with a more challenging piece selected.
Program Success Examples
 Quotes from Parents of Super Strings participants:
  •  "(My daughter) especially enjoyed the opportunity to speak with the (PMP student) violists about their repertoire, teachers they have studied with, camps they have attended, colleges they are looking at, and their PMP experience."
  • "Both my children had a wonderful time. It was indeed a very meaningful experience. Not only were they inspired (and re-energized... in my son's case!) by the amazing Winter Residency students but the absolute highlight of their experience was being conducted by and then meeting Mr. Itzhak Perlman."
  • "Wow!!! I am so pleased for (my daughter)... 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."

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.
 
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.

Management Comments by Organization
The Perlman Music Program/Suncoast is a 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. The organization has grown to present more than 60 musical events annually.
 
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 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 the 2018-2018 Season programs are well underway and include:
  • PMP Sarasota Winter Residency, featuring PMP students and a public appearance by the Super Strings
  • 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 campus 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, Manatee Educational Television, the Observer Group, and SRQ Media.
 
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
