Individual Giving

The Artists Series Concerts of Sarasota is comprised of individuals who are passionate about reaching young people to instill in them a love of music, an abiding appreciation for the talented artists who bring performances to life, and an understanding of the myriad opportunities for employment that exist in the world of the arts. Since 2011, through our performance-based, in-school outreach programs, Artist Series Concerts has partnered with area schools to create unique music experiences and learning opportunities for students and educators. This initiative brings professional musicians and groups, many of whom are acclaimed nationwide, to area schools for 10 to 15 sessions each academic year— inspiring young minds through events that include interactive demonstrations, live performances, and master classes.

Your generous support provides vital funding for these outreach programs. It has also allowed us to encourage young musicians through programs, which have awarded more than $300,000 in scholarships to 80+ career-potential young mu­sicians since 2007. Our more recently established Suncoast Music Scholarship program is a collaborative competition that awards $20,000 annually to young musicians from high schools specifically within Sarasota and Manatee counties. When you give to Artist Series Concerts, you become a critical part of these important programs.

Artist Series Concert’s supporters enjoy special invitations, discounts and access to artists that bring them closer to the music and the artists.
