A Message from the President


Hello friends and music lovers. The North Port Symphony is currently on its annual hiatus, but continues to work behind the scenes to prepare for another exciting season of music beginning this November.  We are busy securing spectacular soloists to perform with the Symphony as we entertain you with program themes including “Summon the Heroes”, “Isn’t it Romantic” and “Hooked on Classics-Part Deux”.


During the Summer NPS hosted a Summer Strings Camps for more than 60 students from 10 area schools at North Port High School.  The program was made possible through the funds donated from the March Gala as well as the generous donations of area businesses listed elsewhere on our website.  North Port Symphony musicians also participated in the city of North Port’s Summer Camp program by providing a Petting Zoo, giving students hands-on access to band and symphonic instruments.


Our mission is to share the joy of music not only through performance, but to help instill the love of playing an instrument to ensure that live music lives on in this community.


It is through your generous support that we can provide a quality musical experience and continue our outreach programs for the area.  Please consider a donation of any amount or by becoming a Friend of the Symphony. Our “Friends” are needed to volunteer to help usher, take tickets and assist with other concert or community related events during our up-coming season.

Thank you for your patronage and on-going support.  It continues to be my privilege to be a part of this group of talented professional, amateur and student musicians.  See you next season!

Percussionist and North Port Symphony Board President

Sharing the Joy 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 enjoyment 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 comprised of amateur and professional musicians, as well as advanced students. Programs include classical, contemporary and popular music. Our concert season runs November through March.

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.

Special Thanks to our Friends of the Symphony
