Background Statement
The Sarasota Concert Association and founding organizations that preceded it have offered classical concerts in Sarasota since 1939.

The Great Performers Series of five or six concerts features an inspired line-up of artists and orchestras presented at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall, or alternative venues.  For the 2017 season, the performers include the Emerson String Quartet, the Minnesota Orchestra, the National Symphony of Ukraine, the Royal Scottish Orchestra, Apollo's Fire, and Daniil Trifonov & Sergei Babayan.

SCA Music Matinees (formerly Munchtime Musicales) is a series of six free community outreach concerts presented during the day at the Beatrice Friedman Symphony Center.  The focus is on local artists and the performances include classical, opera, jazz, folk and popular music.

Sarasota Concert Association operations are carried out by a volunteer Board of nineteen members along with three part time independent contractors who handle box office activities, public relations and administrative support.

Statement from the Board Chair/Board President
In the classical music business challenges abound, but the opportunities also invite us to discover exciting new paths.  The Sarasota Concert Association is in the midst of its 72nd season of "bringing Carnegie Hall to Sarasota." In today's entertainment world,  audiences have many choices. The trend now favors single tickets over subscriptions. This requires artists with name recognition and increased advertising.
We are constantly looking for new ways to reach music lovers who have recently moved to the local area and are also exploring ways to vary our programming to attract new and younger audiences. The enthusiastic reactions we receive from concert-goers demonstrate a real need and great appreciation for this kind of programming.

Financials Comments
Financial Comments by Organization With audiences trending away from subscriptions and toward single ticket purchases, it has become necessary to increase our marketing budget. In addition, to increase ticket sales we must engage artists and orchestras with a certain name recognition.  Fund raising will certainly become a larger part of our activity in the future.
