About the 2021/22 Season
This highly anticipated season offers a long-awaited return to normal concert operations, featuring six mainstage concerts, three outdoor chamber ensembles, renowned guest artists, 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.
The season will feature well-known titles by Copland, Dvořák, Stravinsky, and Tchaikovsky, and will showcase the music of three women: living composer and Grammy award-winner Jennifer Higdon, the legendary Judy Garland, and Florence Price – the groundbreaking composer who was the first African American to have a composition played by a major orchestra.
Other trailblazers featured this season include living Mexican composer Arturo Márquez, from which audiences will hear a revival of the Cuban-derived danzón popular in Mexican dance halls in the 90’s, and African-American composer George Walker, one of America’s most honored composers, whose works have been performed by every major orchestra in the country, and who was the first African-American composer to win a Pulitzer Prize for music. Additional programming highlights include Paul McCartney’s “Spiral” on the March 6, 2022 concert.
Among the guest artists, audiences will see this season, two are women: violinist Sirena Huang, first-place prize winner of the 2017 Elmar Oliveira International Violin Competition, and soprano Joan Ellison, Judy Garland’s connoisseur praised by Michael Feinstein for her “vocal prowess….[and] organic grasp of the classic songs.”
The virtuosity of Punta Gorda Symphony’s own musicians will also be on full display as Principal Percussion Dean Anderson performs as a featured soloist for Creston’s Concertino for Marimba and Orchestra on November 21, 2021, and Concertmaster Ming Gao is featured in Scheherazade on the February 6, 2022 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, 2021, 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.
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.
