I am pleased to add my welcome to all of you for the 2014-2015 North Port Performing Arts Association season.
I believe we have put together an incredible season, with many special treats, and just as many surprises. If you have attended in the past, welcome back. If you have not yet given the Symphony a try, I ask that you consider it. I know you will NOT be disappointed. I include my personal cell chone number and e-mail in all of our literature. I would love to hear from you and I take all of your feedback to heart: (813)789-5354 or firstname.lastname@example.org (e-mail is the best way to get me). I also will be at the front door after all performances, and hope to meet each and every one of you.
We provide such a great product, and I am eager to get every seat in the house filled up. I have issued a challenge to all of our potential audience members: as soon as we sell out the first time, I will publicly have my head shaved, on stage, during intermission. That, on its own, may well be worth the price of admission.
So, now you know how much I want to see you at the Symphony, and I equally invite you to the Band and Chorale concerts. They are both excellent groups, with excellent conductors. These three organizations are part of a musical brotherhood, and our existence is dependent on you.
Thank you so much for your continued and future support.
Artistic Director, North Port Symphony
