Hurricane Ian Relief

Southwest Florida Symphony Supporters and Fans

We hope this message finds you safe and your homes intact following the effects of Hurricane Ian. We realize in the weeks ahead, your focus is on clearing a literal path to normalcy. Again. However, like every other challenge that has come before us all, especially in recent years, we know this, too, shall pass. And when it passes, your Southwest Florida Symphony is here to deliver the indescribable joy of exceptional live music to you. After enduring downed power lines, splintered trees, and insurance claims, don’t we all deserve a little musical joy? When you’re ready to breathe a sigh of relief, we are, as always, here for you to perform the triumphant soundtrack of this beautiful community. Stay tuned to your inboxes and our social media channels for details relating to any changes in dates, venues, or programming that may be necessary due to storm damage-related venue closures.

Thank you for your continued support. We can’t wait to see you at our Season 62 performances.

Musically yours,
Amy J. Ginsburg, Executive Director
Radu Paponiu, Music Director

All performances are free to the public with limited seating that will be accommodated on a first-come,
