Artistic Director’s Message

Dr. Joseph Holt

We are the music makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams…

With these words, poet Arthur O’Shaughnessy launches his famous ode to creativity and the artists who create beauty in the world.

As performing musical artists, we strive to re-create this beauty and inspiration. Join Choral Artists of Sarasota in a season of performances where each concert features a unique tribute, commemoration, celebration, or recognition of people and events that have made a difference in our lives. From the movies to the military to Matthew Shepard, we have all been touched and inspired by their impact, each telling a story resonating deep within us. The medium of choral music, a magical marriage of words and music, takes us on this musical journey like no other. We are also honored to be representing the people of Florida and the United States by participating in the 80th Anniversary of D-Day in Normandy, France in 2024.”
