Hurricane Ian and Box Office Update
Dear North Port Symphony Patrons, Musicians, and Supporters,
Our beautiful city of North Port has suffered tremendous damage due to the effects of Hurricane Ian. Many North Port citizens still lack power, water, or cell phone signal. Mass flooding has delayed the recovery of these essential utilities and forced many families to be evacuated from their homes via airboats by the National Guard and North Port Police.
The North Port Performing Arts Center sustained damage from the storm. School campuses in Sarasota County are closed until further notice. Flooding has caused massive damage to the city's infrastructure. Our thoughts are with our patrons and musicians located in neighboring cities of Sarasota, Venice, Port Charlotte, Rotonda, Englewood, Punta Gorda, and Arcadia as they also have their fair share of hardships due to Hurricane Ian.
Most of all, we cannot ignore the devastation in Fort Myers and Naples. If you are from this area, we hope you are safe and healthy and have the resources necessary to get through this challenging time.
At this time, concerts for the North Port Symphony are still scheduled to go as planned starting on November 13. It is possible that future damage assessments may delay our first concert. We will keep you updated as soon as we have information.
Tickets are still available to purchase online at www.NorthPortSymphony.com. The physical Box Office will remain closed until further notice, however, you may place an order by phone at our temporary Box Office phone number at 941-237-0124 or email [email protected] with questions.
If need to do a wellness check on a loved one in North Port or if you are a part-time resident looking to get information about your home, please call 941-429-7000 to be connected to someone who can get you more information.
Message from the Symphony President 5/6/2022
I would like to personally thank all of our patrons who helped make our return this past season a huge success. Following a year of Covid, the 2021-2022 season was questionable as we were uncertain if the pandemic would cause us to lose another season. Thankfully, that wasn't the case. A very special thanks to our donors this year. Because of your support, scholarships were awarded to five outstanding high school musicians which will assist them in attending summer music camps, pay for private lessons, and/or other music related expenses. In addition, an extra large thank you to Bocca Lupo Pizza for contributing to the symphony a portion of the proceeds from the April 19th's Pizza For a Cause fundraiser, and to those who enjoyed great food that day contributing to its success. As a result of that donation, several new instruments were donated to the North Port High School orchestra to be used by the students. Maestro Romanski is currently preparing another season of excellent music to include special guest artists that will appeal to all ages. Please continue to support this fine orchestra through your attendance and donations. I speak for all of our musicians when I say how much we appreciate you and look forward to another successful season.
Thank you for coming for Pizza!
A portion of your meal went directly to the North Port Symphony's education fund to all of our patrons who had dinner at Bocca Lupo Pizza in North Port or Port Charlotte on Tuesday, April 19. We raised over $1,800!
We have decided to dedicate these funds to our campaign to help replace the string instruments at North Port High School so students can continue to succeed on instruments that give them the best experience.
This summer, the Symphony will be donating ten brand new violins to the high school's orchestra program!
Consider donating today to the Symphony's education fund if you couldn't support "Pizza for a cause"!
