Musician Host Program
Host a Musician On behalf of The Venice Symphony, THANK YOU to every host family who welcomed musicians into their homes this season. The Venice Symphony’s Musician Host Program is one of the best “behind the scenes” stories at the orchestra. Hosts provide a “home away from home” experience to visiting musicians who fill their homes with music. The experience often leads to long-term friendships with many musicians returning year after year to their host family. 


The Symphony matches hosts and musicians based on a detailed application.

You can host musicians for as many concerts as is convenient for you.

We are seeking hosts for the 2023-24 season.

Quotes From Our Hosts

“A spare bedroom and bath plus a love for live music is all you need to create a beautiful experience. My home was filled with music every day and an added treat was the opportunity to attend the final rehearsal before opening night! Hosting a musician is a dream!”

“As hosts, we show our appreciation for the musician’s talent and dedication and express gratitude for the extraordinary music they share with us. It’s the perfect way to honor the musicians who make The Venice Symphony an incredible orchestra.”

“Hosting a Venice Symphony musician has been a pleasure for us whether it’s eating breakfast together or hearing him practice under the shady overhang of the lanai. Enjoying a glass of wine after the performance, you’re not just a musician and host, you’re now friends.”

“Hosting a musician has been a wonderful experience. Getting up close and personal with such talented individuals has provided an insight we would have missed otherwise. I would urge those who can share their home with a musician to do so and expand their exposure to the world of symphony music.”
