The Sarasota Orchestra brought renowned musician Yo Yo Ma to perform in Sarasota during its annual gala at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall on March. 2.
The Sarasota Orchestra Gala featured a special concert where Yo Yo Ma performed with members of the Sarasota Orchestra — something staff considered to be a major milestone in the organization's history.
Before that, though, was an hour of mingling where the Sarasota Orchestra's closest supporters met at sunset to sip drinks and catch up.
Following the concert — which brought every guest to their feet for a standing ovation — guests took their seats for dinner where they heard from board chair Tom Koski.
