Thank you for the concert at the Sidney and Berne Davis Art Center...It was a pleasure to hear a reduced ensemble...and sitting that close allowed me to hear the contributions of subsidiary performers, such as the timpanist.

​Had an outstanding evening at the Pops concert this evening...Rogers & Hammerstein with Daniel Meyer as conductor and the fabulous Lisa Vroman, soprano, of Broadway fame.​

​For my mother's birthday, we attended their amazing Holiday Pops performance in St. Augustine last night. True professionals. Thank you for a wonderful evening of great music.​

Better coffee from our mug

When the call went out for the challenge Campaign, we certainly did not expect recompense beyond the great music that we enjoy each winter. However, I had my afternoon coffee in the SWFLSO coffee cup, and found it to taste even better than usual.

We've thoroughly enjoyed this year's concerts. The orchestra is playing really well and Maestro Kabaretti has done a wonderful job.

My wife, not ordinarily a classical music enthusiast, proclaimed your hurricane relief be the most enjoyable concert she had ever attended.
