While we postponed our 2020-21 concert season at the Venice Performing Arts Center to 2021-22, The Venice Symphony, with support from Gulfcoast Community Foundation and our advertisers, presented a free four-concert virtual series This series has been viewed by thousands of music lovers all over the world.
Symphony in the Schools and summer camp were not held this year due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. Our dedicated Venice Symphony Youth Orchestra continued to rehearse outdoors with social distancing and performed on May 1 at Trinity Presbyterian Church at a concert sponsored by Lightspeed Gives.
