The Sarasota Orchestra honors the late music director’s legacy in the new season

With its new season, the Sarasota Orchestra plans to honor the legacy of music director Bramwell Tovey, whose sudden death in July came months before he could fully assume artistic leadership of the organization.

Tovey, 69, who signed a five-year deal in August 2021, died on July 12 after a rare form of sarcoma, from which he had been briefly cancer-free, returned.

He had already mapped out a season that was to star him in the orchestra’s Masterworks, Discoveries, Pops and Chamber Soirees series. These concerts will still feature some of the emerging soloists and composers he championed.
