Ask a Sarasotan what makes our city special and, chances are, the arts is on the top of his or her list. The arts thrive here, and it’s because of one group of people — the supporters. If you read Scene and Heard last week, you learned The Observer launched a weekly online video series that spotlights these patrons’ stories and the effect they have on the arts.
This week features a man the Sarasota Opera thinks highly of — Ed Bavaria. His iPod is full of nothing other than opera, an art form he’s loved since childhood when his mother used to sing arias around the house. He serves on the board of directors for Sarasota Opera, and his donations contributed to the $20 million historic renovation and restoration in 2008. Learn about Bavaria and why he thinks it doesn’t get better than Sarasota Opera, here.
