A Message from the President


Welcome friends and music lovers to another exciting season with the North Port Symphony. It is my privilege as President of the Board of Directors to invite you to join us as we provide a masterful mix of classical, contemporary, and popular music. This season will include many notable guest musicians and vocalists and maybe even a surprise visit or two. It is a historic year for the symphony as we celebrate our 40th year of sharing the joy of music in the North Port Community. In celebration of this momentous occasion, we are pleased to be hosting our first-ever fundraising gala on March 2, 2024. Tickets will go on sale on January 21 and seating is limited, so we encourage you to purchase your tickets quickly for an evening of music, fun, and fundraising. Don’t forget to wear your dancing shoes as we enjoy the music
of the Saint Tone Band.


If you are unable to attend the event, please consider a donation of any amount to the symphony. For this year only, a minimum gift of $40 entitles you to become a member of the “Friends of the Symphony” and receive a pair of 40th Anniversary North Port Symphony socks. Now more than ever we need your support to keep live music alive in our community. Your donations will help us to continue to bring you the highest quality music by a group of talented professional, amateur and student musicians. It will also help us to revive youth after-school and summer music programs that we can only provide with your financial assistance.

Thank you for your continued patronage.

Percussionist and Board President

For The Love of Music.

The North Port Symphony was founded in 1983 by a handful of local residents who were interested in playing music for their own pleasure as well as for the community. St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church served as the Symphony’s home until November of 2001 when we moved to our current home in the Music Suite adjacent to the Performing Arts Center on the North Port High School Campus. The Symphony is composed of amateur and professional musicians. Programs include classical, contemporary and popular music. 

Mission Statement

The mission of the North Port Symphony is to share the joy of music.

Vision Statement

To be the most welcoming community orchestra in southwest Florida and to cultivate a sense of belonging between our patrons, musicians, students, and community.
