About the 2022/23 Season

This exciting season will feature six mainstage concerts, three Jazz on the Lawn concerts, renowned guest artist and classical pianist Roman Rabinovich, and revered symphonic works that will be music to the ears of Southwest Floridians eager for live concert experiences inside and outside the concert hall.

Mainstage Concerts at the Charlotte Performing Arts Center will feature well-known titles by Brahms, Copland, Dvořák, Wagner, Schubert, Shostakovich, Rossini, Elgar, Rachmaninoff, and A Classical Holiday with Rimsky-Korsakov, Bach, and Tchaikovsky. Bringing new sounds to our ears will be the music of Florence Price – the groundbreaking composer who was the first African American to have a composition played by a major orchestra – and the “Dean of Afro-American composers” William Grant Still, along with Spanish composer Manuel de Falla, renowned for his ballet music based on Spanish dance. Our season finale concert, Cinematic Sounds, will boast the music of great films at the Charlotte Harbor Event & Conference Center, including selections from The Sound of Music, Star Wars, West Side Story, Pirates of the Caribbean, Schindler’s List, and Gladiator.

Every Friday before Mainstage Concerts, go behind the scenes of the music you love with Maestro Ponti’s community Behind the Notes program. Lectures are free to all and are held at the new Punta Gorda Library from 5-6 PM. Looking for more? Maestro Ponti presents Musical Conversations at 6:30 PM at the concert venue before each Mainstage Concert, where he illuminates the music on the evening’s program.

Health and Safety

Your health and safety are a top priority as our community continues to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic. We are following the latest guidelines and requirements for indoor events set by concert venues, and by local and state health officials. As of October 15, 2022, we are selling subscriptions and single tickets in a full-capacity, non-socially distanced format. Punta Gorda Symphony continues to recommend the wearing of face masks at indoor settings, and will provide face masks to reduce the spread of coronavirus and COVID-19.

We acknowledge that pandemic conditions can change rapidly; other safety mandates may be implemented for indoor attendance including, potentially, the required use of facial coverings. All requirements before and during your attendance will be strictly enforced for the health and safety of you, your fellow patrons, our musicians, and symphony staff. Should we be unable to accommodate a full-capacity, non-socially distanced model of seating indoors, we are holding a suitable outdoor venue as a contingency plan to still present the full orchestra and sell a full audience of tickets!

Assumption of Risk

Because COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to be spread mainly from person-to-person contact, Punta Gorda Symphony has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19 at Punta Gorda Symphony events. However, Punta Gorda Symphony cannot guarantee that its employees, officers, directors, musicians, independent contractors, patrons, volunteers, partners, or others in attendance will not become infected with COVID-19. By attending this event, you agree to assume all risk and responsibility associated with potential exposure to COVID-19 at a Punta Gorda Symphony event. 

COVID-19 WARNING

An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is a highly contagious disease that may result in personal injury, severe illness, and death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens and persons with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable. Please visit the CDC website for its current guidance on people at increased risk for severe illness and other people who should take extra precautions. By attending a performance of Punta Gorda Symphony, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.
