Arts & Culture

SRQ DAILY MONDAY BUSINESS EDITION MONDAY MAY 11, 2020

Sarasota Concert Association (SCA) celebrates its 76th season with a roster of world-renowned classical artists and ensembles. SCA’s 2021 Great Performers Series season, which runs January 14 through March 16, features the Moscow State Symphony Orchestra with Pavel Kogan, music director, and Blake Pouliot, violin (January 14, 7:30 p.m., at the Van Wezel); The Cleveland Orchestra with Franz Welser-Möst, music director, and Yuja Wang, piano (January 24, 7:30 p.m., at the Van Wezel); Bach Collegium Japan (January 28, 7:30 p.m., at Riverview Performing Arts Center); the Takács Quartet and Joyce Yang, piano (February 25, 7:30 p.m., at the Van Wezel); Benjamin Beilman, violin, and Yekwon Sunwoo, piano (March 1, 7:30 p.m., at Riverview Performing Arts Center); and Emanuel Ax, piano (March 16, 7:30 p.m., at the Van Wezel). Season subscriptions are on sale now and range from $425 to $140 for all six concerts. Single tickets go on sale on August 1. 

“The pandemic has dealt a severe blow to cultural organizations in Sarasota and around the world,” says Joy McIntyre, SCA’s board president. “Our decision to cancel our final concerts was, of course, a great loss. But it was the right thing to do for our patrons and the community.”

According to McIntyre, the SCA board still looks forward to a spectacular 2021 season, despite recent economic setbacks. “Our Great Performers Series artists and ensembles are all phenomenal,” she says. “One highlight is The Cleveland Orchestra under the direction of Franz Welser-Möst. They performed to a sold-out audience in 2018, and we have already heard from subscribers purchasing seats this early—a great sign that SCA’s devoted supporters are here to stay!” McIntyre adds that Emanuel Ax and the Takács Quartet will also be returning—both audience favorites from the GPS series of 2018.
