January 6 features Canadian pianist Marc-André Hamelin. Later in the month, on January 27, will be the Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio with guest violinist Nokuthula Ngwenyama — the trio which debuted in 1977 at the Inauguration of President Jimmy Carter. February 5 brings the 17 string musicians that make up the East Coast Chamber Orchestra. And February 19 offers Russia’s oldest symphony orchestra (formed in 1882), St. Petersburg Philharmonic. The season closes March 3 with a performance from the Detroit Symphony conducted by Leonard Slatkin with solo pianist Olga Kern.

Food and fun
The Lakewood Ranch Business Alliance and its Young Leaders Alliance have something to talk about: the organizations collected 764 pounds of nonperishable food and $1,295 cash to benefit The Food Bank of Manatee/Meals on Wheels PLUS.
River Club’s Cheryl Kaufman says she’s still pinching herself.
A little “Ho! Ho! Ho!” can go a long way this holiday season.
