Presidents Message

The Symphony is a founding member of the North Port Performing Arts Association. We are active in civic affairs including North Port Days, North Port Library fund raising. In 1989, we established an educational program, which includes a competitive scholarship program for a college bound student who will major or minor in music. We were the proud recipients of a grant from The Plantations. This enabled the group to commission a guitar concerto, composed by native Sarasotian, Rex Willis. The World Premiere was presented in April, with Thomas Koch as soloist.

We look forward to another season of audience pleasing music and thank you all for your continuing support!
