Memorable performance venues enhance the overall musical experience.
This season our concerts take place in various dynamic venues, including the Historic Asolo Theater, Fischer/Weisenborne Residence, Marie Selby Botanical Gardens, and the Plantation Golf and Country Club.
THE HISTORIC ASOLO THEATER
Several of our concerts take place in the remarkable setting of the Historic Asolo Theater. Comfortable seating, excellent acoustic, and sightlines combine with the theater’s jewel-like setting to create an ideal space to enjoy world-class musicians. Sarasota's most storied theater was created in 1798 in Asolo, Italy, brought to Sarasota in the early 1950s and painstakingly restored in 2006. The Historic Asolo Theater remains one of the most beloved treasures in The Ringling’s collection. 5401 Bay Shore Road, Sarasota.
Our three-concert Soirée Series is presented in the music room of a one-of-a-kind residence in Sarasota. Our audiences enjoy not only high-quality musical entertainment but also the ambiance of enjoying the music in a private setting. Delicious light foods and beverages enhance each soiree experience. The room comfortably accommodates 75 guests and boasts three large grand pianos, including a Steinway Concert Grand, and two restored pipe organs with over 2,500 pipes.
