The Sarasota Concert Association announces its exciting 2024 Music Matinees concert series. Performances now take place at First Presbyterian Church, downtown Sarasota, at 2 p.m. These four FREE afternoon concerts showcase outstanding regional musicians performing a variety of musical styles. From classical to marimba, this concert series includes something for everyone. Scheduled this season: Corda Voce; Wednesday, January 10, at 2 p.m. Jenny Kim-Godfrey and Dr. Jonathan Godfrey form the soprano and classical guitar duo known as Corda Voce (Cor-da VO-chay - Italian for "string voice"). Since 2015 they have intertwined the influences of cabaret, classical, jazz, and popular music to create a program that has delighted audiences. Sarasota Opera Studio Artists; Friday, February 23, at 2 p.m. The Sarasota Opera’s Studio Artists is a select and auditioned group of emerging artists who perform in mainstage productions by understudying principal roles and performing supporting roles, gaining valuable experience in the process. With dozens of roles needing understudies each season, the Studio Artists often step in to substitute for an ill or injured principal, sometimes with little notice. Modern Marimba; Wednesday, March 6, at 2 p.m. Modern Marimba, founded by Tihda Vongkoth and Steph Davis, has celebrated three seasons of virtual and in-person concert programs that celebrate the true diversity of music. Sarasota Piano Trio; Wednesday, April 17, at 2 p.m. The Sarasota Piano Trio features pianist Jesse Martins, violinist Milene Moreira and cellist Nadine Trudel. Praised for their interesting programming and expressive playing, they perform a mix of well-known as well as rarely heard classical repertoire. The concerts are free but pre-registration is required and available 30 days before each concert at SCAsarasota.org, or through our box office at (941) 966-6161. Attendees can reserve up to two tickets per matinee performance. Please note our new time and location: Performances now take place at First Presbyterian Church, 2050 Oak Street, downtown Sarasota, at 2 p.m. The Sarasota Concert Association 2024 Music Matinee Series is generously sponsored by The Exchange and BayFirst.
