New Music New College Season Preview

From Sarasota Magazine .  August 1, 2019

A mix of new and returning artists highlights the 2019-20 schedule.

October brings more than (slightly) cooler temperatures to Sarasota. For new music fans, it also heralds the return of the New Music New College series, now entering its third decade.

The 2019-20 season, which commences Oct. 5, offers some familiar faces and some new ones in the musical mix. Each of the five scheduled concerts lasts about one hour with no intermission, takes place in traditional and nontraditional venues on the New College campus, and comes with Pre-Concert Talks, free Artist Conversations on dates before the concerts, and free post-concert receptions. Tickets are free for New College students, faculty and staff, as well as for students, faculty and staff of partner CCA institutions (USF Sarasota-Manatee, Ringling College of Art and Design, State College of Florida, FSU/Asolo Conservatory and Eckerd College) as well as Booker High’s VPA program. But even if you’re not part of those institutions, a subscription costs just $60, with single tickets $15—not a bad price for five evenings of entertainment and enrichment.
