Outreach Concerts

Free Lobby Concert

Regular outreach concerts are performed by Sarasota Opera artists for local civic, social, and service clubs as well as for area business functions and special occasions, making performances more accessible to the community. Working on the belief that opera can benefit everyone, the Sarasota Opera seeks to develop relationships with individuals from diverse cultural, ethnic, and socio-economic groups. 

Designing, implementing, and continuing activities in this audience-development process requires a commitment to learning more about these individuals and groups. Our artists present a wide variety of concerts across the region free of charge, in order to make opera accessible to everyone. To learn more about bringing an outreach concert to your community, e-mail Sam Lowry, Director of Audience Development.
