The Sanibel Music Festival will launch their Emerging Artist Series this week.
It will feature chamber ensembles from Florida Gulf Coast University’s Bower School of Music and The Arts on March 23 and March 30 at 11 a.m. at the Sundial Beach Resort and Spa on Sanibel.
“We are delighted to welcome Dr. Kyle Szabo and the talented Bower School of Music artists to Sanibel,” festival President Jana Stone said. “The Emerging Artist Series will showcase promising talent in a beautiful island venue, while allowing strict observance of public health standards.”
The venue offers socially-distanced seating, easy accessibility and on-site parking.
Concern for COVID-19 conditions caused the festival’s organizers to rethink the annual seven-concert series this year, which typically features a mix of chamber music, piano recital and vocal ensemble.
“I’m looking forward to enjoying the daytime concerts this year,” Vice President Nina Orrell said. “The 2022 season is planned to return to evening performances with an outstanding program, including the multiple award-winning Emerson String Quartet, honored with nine Grammys.”
