Artistic Director’s Message

Dr. Joseph Holt

Welcome to a brand-new season of exquisite choral music performance with the Choral Artists of Sarasota. Having been squirreled away in seclusion for the better part of last season, we are prepared to return to live and in-person concerts, lifting us all up to new flights of musical fancy.

We invite you to join us on our journey and be Carried Away! Each concert this season is a veritable feast for the senses, a kaleidoscope of musical experiences to be savored.

We thank each and every one of you who remained loyal over the past year and a half. Your expressions of concern for our singers and encouragement regarding our programs inspired us to renew our determination to present performances that nurture, entertain and comfort us all. It’s been an incredible year and I am so heartened by the kindness, love, and support that has come as a result of the pandemic. We are a community and we genuinely care for each other.

The combination of voices united in song is one of the most expressive forms of music-making, one which human beings have enjoyed for millennia. In continuing our innovative programming over the past decade, I have designed six performances that highlight the vocal strengths of our singers and have engaged national soloists to round out the musical experience.

The journey awaits – come and be Carried Away!
