Join Us for Our First Patriotic Pops Concert

On May 25 at 7:30 pm, The Venice Symphony, led by Conductor Troy Quinn, will perform a Patriotic Pops concert at the brand new Atlanta Braves Spring Facility— Cool Today Park, presented by the Community Foundation of Sarasota County and followed by a fireworks display.  

The concert will feature standards like “America the Beautiful” and “Stars and Stripes Forever,” along with music by composers Aaron Copland, John Williams and many more, and will include a salute to veterans. 

Our guest soloist is Sergeant First Class Randall Wight, a member of the U.S. Army Field Band since 2005, who has performed the National Anthem at Camden Yards in Baltimore, composed the theme song for the Army Birthday Ball in Washington, DC, and performed and recorded in Las Vegas. See Sgt. Wight‘s stirring rendition of the National Anthem here. 

You and your guests can enjoy the concert from the front rows of the stadium or from the terrace level with access to an air-conditioned suite.  Don’t miss your chance to stand out from the crowd of more than 2700 people while supporting The Venice Symphony’s orchestra and music education programs. As part of your sponsorship, you may even donate tickets to local veterans’ organizations.
