Florida’s largest professional orchestra will begin its 54th season with health and safety measures in place as it expands to venues in Tampa, St. Petersburg and Clearwater. TFO also will add three performances of Handel’s Messiah featuring The Master Chorale of Tampa Bay for the holidays, and change the date of an upcoming Family Concert.“I cannot wait to give that first downbeat and hear The Florida Orchestra back in full power,” said Maestro Francis, starting his seventh season with TFO. “I am prouder than ever to lead a symphony orchestra that builds community and, week after week, provides a sanctuary for you to listen to the world’s most inspiring music.
”For the 2021/22 season, TFO will perform traditional length concerts with a full complement of musicians at three major performing arts venues operating at full capacity: the Straz Center for the Performing Arts in Tampa, The Duke Energy Center for the Arts/Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg and Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater.
