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!!

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!
Great photos from Tampa Bay Symphony's performance last night!
So great to watch and listen to the Tampa Bay Symphony LIVE at the Palladium Theater this past Sunday afternoon. They'll be playing again LIVE tonight at 8pm and the St Pete Catalyst wrote this great story about what they've been doing this past year. Take a read then join us tonight!
