The mission of the Tampa Bay Symphony is to promote interest in symphonic music while enhancing and enriching the cultural life and educational experiences of our community.

The 80+ musicians, all of whom are volunteers, come from many walks of life and all ages. Teachers, lawyers, doctors, engineers, housewives, and of course, students and retirees are among those represented. The goals of the orchestra are to promote interest and education in music of high standards, to provide musicians of all ages an opportunity to perform in a symphony orchestra and, thus, to enhance the cultural and artistic life of members of our community.

WE HAVE MERCHANDISE!

One of our violists, Karen Mamel, creates beautiful instrument covers for violins and violas. She marbelizes the silk by hand, then sews it to fit either violin or viola.

These covers are available to buy at Violin Shop Tampa (both Tampa and Sarasota locations), and 20% of the sales will be donated to Tampa Bay Symphony. Check it out!

A few of us surprised our former Tampa Bay Symphony principal violist, Marie Milne yesterday afternoon at her retirement home.
Marie retired a number of years ago and I think she is somewhere between 95 and 99 years old!

We’ve been friends for many years. It was wonderful to play for her and the residents of her Assisted Living Everyone wore masks but you could feel the smiles!

This event was postponed 2 times so we were finally able to play!!
With Barbara Verduin VanPatten, Judy Rowland, Kathryn Rodriguez Mihalyo, Maribeth Radtke, Gilbert Marcy, and Ruth Kern.

Marie has played the violin since she was five years old. She earned the 1st chair violinist for the Tampa Bay Symphony in her 60’s and played with them for 25 years. Marie can't play the violin anymore but she loved going to symphony performances. However with her eyesight and hearing limitations, she has not been able enjoy it for quite some time. In order to help Marie enjoy a symphony performance, the staff at Elmcroft of Pinecrest reached out to the Tampa Bay Symphony Orchestra. So many of them remembered Marie and volunteered to come and perform for her. Thank you to these wonderful musicians who have not forgotten Marie and continue to hold her in such high regard. And thank you to the staff of Elmcroft Senior Living for making Marie's dream come true!

For more than 20 years, The Palladium Theater at St. Petersburg College has stayed focused on its mission to be the affordable, professional performing arts venue for West Central Florida. Both Hough Hall, our mainstage, and our intimate Side Door Cabaret have earned “Best of the Bay” recognition for many years. Arts organizations, such as St. Petersburg Opera Company, The Florida Orchestra, The Master Chorale of Tampa Bay, the Pinellas Youth Symphony, Tampa Bay Symphony, the Academy of Ballet Arts, and dozens of others consider the Palladium their performance home. The theater is also the home of jazz, blues, chamber music, dance, stand-up comedy and so many other genres of music. Local entertainment magazine Creative Loafing honored the Palladium as the top spot for jazz in the Tampa Bay region. As part of our mission, the theater has built strong relationships with the professional performers and artists in our area. This year we will expand that support with a new Palladium Resident Artist program that provides direct funding to local artists to create new work which will later debut at the Palladium. While we aren’t able to welcome audience and performers into the theater during this shutdown, I hope you will continue to support our mission by making a tax-deductible donation to the Friends of the Palladium Fund. Follow this link to make a donation. https://foundation.spcollege.edu/pages/palladium-online-contributions-form Thanks for your ongoing support of the Palladium at St. Petersburg College and we hope to see you here for more memorable live performances very soon. Paul Wilborn, Executive Director
