The following information just arrived in my email box, and I thought you’d like to see what our Sarasota Orchestra musicians do with their “spare” time. These are all wonderful music festivals in various, exciting parts of the world. Some, like the Sarasota Music Festival, are teaching and performing opportunities. Others are pure performance venues. In any case, they are ideal spots for young musicians to gain experience working with brilliant colleagues and conductors in new settings.

For a few days in August, we’re going to be in Santa Fe, N.M., and look forward to saying "hi" to Dan Jordan and the others. If you’re planning trips to any of the following music festivals, be sure to look up your hometown players. It’s always good to see someone from home — on stage and off.
And, remember, we will also benefit from what these performers learn, wherever they are.
