Sarasota Orchestra’s May concerts promise to showcase hits that have captivated audiences “Time After Time.” The Orchestra will transport audiences back to the ‘80s with its ever-popular Outdoor Pops concert. After the electrifying nostalgia of the music of the ‘80s, audiences can bask in the romanticism of Tchaikovsky in Sarasota Orchestra’s final Discoveries program of the season.

Discoveries: Becoming Tchaikovsky

What would have been on Tchaikovsky’s playlist? Conductor David Alan Miller offers a “sampler platter” of works by some of Tchaikovsky’s musical heroes, featuring beloved pieces by Bizet, Grieg, Schumann and Mozart. The program concludes with virtuoso cellist Zlatomir Fung performing Tchaikovsky’s timeless “Rococo” Variations—a glorious glimpse into the soul of one of music’s most treasured composers.
