The Florida Orchestra will present its most 'substantial' world premiere this weekend

What exactly did TFO Concertmaster Jeffrey Multer say to composer Michael Ippolito in 2018 to spark the composition of this Violin Concerto? Find out below!

The concert will feature new music by Tampa-born composer Michael Ippolito. It's a violin concerto that came about partly because of a comment concertmaster Jeffrey Multer made to Ippolito in 2018.

Trombone Section POV: Miraculous Mandarin

Get close-up with TFO Musicians! Trombone section edition 🎵

This is a big trombone moment from The Miraculous Mandarin by Béla Bartók where the first and second trombones trade off so the solo sounds continuous.

Great Coffee Concert today. Stuart and the musicians definitely were on their A game today. Thank you!
Loved tonight's concert! It was refreshing! Natalie played beautifully - She is gifted and we're thankful she's sharing her gift!
Loved the One Giant Leap concert and so did my grandkids!
This was my daughter’s review of the performance she attended with her school on Oct. 17th. She says, “The wondrous sounds of string instruments almost sung me to sleep, the smooth ballet moves quick and professional. It left me in a state of astonishment, trying to lean close as humanly possible without leaving the comfy red seats. It was all beautiful, and I couldn’t help but think how lucky I was to attend the Florida Orchestra!”
My daughter's name is Kimora Christian, 9yr. Old, and in the 4th grade. Thank you for filling her soul with your beautiful performances.
want to perform a piece, where can we send the score to?

cheers,
