Welcome to The Suncoast Symphony Orchestra Website

Our 2020-2021 and 37th Season is postponed until further notice.

UPDATE - 9/16/2021:

Dear Suncoast Symphony Musicians and Friends,

On behalf of the Board of Directors and our Maestro I hope that all you and your loved ones continue to successfully deal with the COVID situation and that its impact on you and your loved ones has been minimal.

As you know COVID put a premature end to our 36th season back in March of 2020 and it has also prevented us from starting our 37th season. Despite many efforts by the Board, health and medical restrictions have made it very difficult, if not impossible, to rehearse and perform.

Because of these challenges it is the Board’s decision to postpone the startup of the Suncoast Symphony Orchestra until January 5, 2022.

Musically yours,

Suncoast Symphony Orchestra

The orchestra is a member of the Pinellas Arts Foundation and the Clearwater Arts Alliance.

All members of the orchestra donate their time. For anyone interested in joining the orchestra, we currently have openings in all of the string sections and in the percussion section. If you know of a string/percussion musician who would like more information about joining our orchestra please have them contact Jim Mateka.

Rehearsals are on Wednesday evenings from 7:15pm-9:30pm; Downbeat at 7:30pm with Dr. Ted DeCorso at the podium.

Grace Lutheran Church, 1812 North Highland Avenue, Clearwater 33755-2136 Map

Remember to bring a stand and be prepared to play some challenging music!




Thank You
