The Mission Of The Artist Series Of Sarasota
To present live concerts for the enjoyment and cultural enrichment of audiences in Sarasota, Florida and surrounding communities.
We achieve our Mission by….
Presenting primarily classical music programming, featuring voice, piano, and other instruments with an emphasis on recitals and small ensembles.
Building our audience and supporters by offering performances of the highest possible standards of quality.in classical music, but also recognizing other musical genres, including the Broadway stage, motion pictures, cabaret and studio opera.
Utilizing small venues, informal presentation style, and performers recognized both nationally and internationally, with emphasis on presentation of emerging artists.
Taking responsibility for helping to assure the future of classical music by assisting young musicians who demonstrate career-quality potential in the field of music by committing significant resources to a scholarship fund and annual scholarship awards.
As part of that process, a Board of Directors was established and the critical steps toward assuring the longevity of the ARTIST SERIES CONCERTS OF SARASOTA were begun as the organization developed its long-term vision and goals.
