Masterworks Series

Our signature concert series, Masterworks, are classical performances featuring a full symphony orchestra and world renowned guest artists. This season, all Masterworks performances include guest conductors who will visit with us to get to know Southwest Florida from on and off the stage while we seek
our next Music Director.

One hour prior to each Masterworks concert, patrons are invited to attend conductor and guest artist led pre-concert lectures. These lectures, which include Q&A opportunities, enhance our patrons’ concert experience through providing insight into the pieces being performed.
