Those who are unfamiliar with this performing arts company The Florida Orchestra is considered not only one of the best such symphony orchestras in the state of Florida but is renowned as one of leading professional orchestras in the United States. Their long history and tradition of great musical performances make their shows a real treat for the audiences. The Florida Orchestracan trace its origins to the area of Tampa Bay to the 1930s, where the WPA orchestra was playing to popular demand. In the next decade the Tampa Symphony Orchestra which would be later named as the Tampa Philharmonic, was formed and also rose to prominence. In the city of St. Petersburg the St. Petersburg Symphony was also playing with rising popularity.
It was the merging of the latter of these two prominent orchestras of the region that formed the Florida Gulf Coast Symphony in 1966. It is interesting to note that since these two orchestras used to perform across Tampa Bay the merger was made official with representatives from the two orchestras travelling by boat to the center of the bay as a symbolic union of the two. The newly formed orchestra began its shows in November of 1968. At the helm of the orchestra was conductor Irwin Hoffman who led the orchestra through an initial period of success and popularity. Having been renamed The Florida Orchestra in 1984 the orchestra would perform Berlioz’ “Overture to Benvenuto Cellini” and “Shostakovich’s Symphony No 5, Op. 47” among others.
It was however under the charge of the new conductor Jahja Ling that the The Florida Orchestra earned its true recognition both national and international. The orchestra’s performances under Ling were critically acclaimed and their spreading fame and recognition lead them to perform the Star Spangled Banner at the Super Bowl XXV with Whitney Houston. The Florida Orchestra hence achieved a historic landmark as being the first ever symphony orchestra to perform at the Super Bowl. With the orchestra performing before an estimated audience of around 750 million people worldwide this became a pinnacle in their history. Jahja Ling remained at the helm of the orchestra till 2002 after which present conductor Stefan Sanderling took over.
Sanderling himself is an artist of immense renown and hailed as one of the greatest conductors of his generation. Today The Florida Orchestra is Tamp Bay’s leading performing arts act and institution, plus one of the best in the United States. Their awe inspiring performances exhibit the talent, artistic standard and skill of the musicians and the conductor and attract large audiences. Their circuit of performances takes them around the entire Tampa Bay region with around 100 concerts performed every year. Whether they perform in Tampa, St. Petersburg or in the city of Clearwater they always attract large audiences who relish amazing performances of the orchestra.
They perform a series of concerts through out the area such as the St. Petersburg Times Masterworks, Coffee Concert matinees, Progress Energy Morning Masterworks and Youth concerts as well. People who enjoy orchestra music would certainly appreciate the skill, artistic standard as well as the devotion and motivation of the musicians. The Florida Orchestra tickets would certainly provide them with an experience that they would not want to miss out on.
