Kerry Smith, Director of Artistic Planning for the Sarasota Orchestra, Joins the Club
When she was in college, if you would have told Kerry Smith that she would be anything other than a professional viola player, she would have told you to go fly a kite. How she ended up being an arts administrator and becoming the Director of Artistic Planning for the Sarasota Orchestra is a fascinating and heartwarming story. One that has seen her make beautiful personal connections and experience great loss of those she has come to admire most, including Bramwell Tovey, the Sarasota Orchestra's recently passed conductor.
Listen to this week's podcast to learn about Kerry's life and career, the enormous challenges and fulfilling experiences she has had in her role with the Sarasota Orchestra since coming here in 2019, the incredible season of performances with guest conductors and soloists she has put together, and the next steps for the Sarasota Orchestra as it begins another search for a new conductor and the process of building a new music center.
All that and more on this week's episode of the Suncoast Culture Club Podcast.
