On March 23, 2018, the Pensacola Symphony will present Center Stage: A Benefit Concert. This new event will take place at Vinyl Music Hall and feature an evening of jazz and blues by the talented Byron Stripling and Bobby Floyd. All of the funds raised at Center Stage will support PSO’s Beyond the Stage program for community engagement and education.

Beyond the Stage programming shares music with the Pensacola community in schools, health care facilities and neighborhoods. This program works in partnership with amazing organizations like the Studer Family Children’s Hospital at Sacred Heart, Covenant Care, Nemours Children’s Specialty Care, the Pensacola Community Music School, Azalea Trace Retirement Community, and three area middle and high schools. Through Beyond the Stage, PSO’s professional musicians teach, mentor and interact with members of the community that are underserved or have limited access to music. All services of Beyond the Stage are provided to our partner organizations at no cost, so we rely on the generosity of individuals and businesses like yours to support this important program.

If you have any questions or would like additional information, contact or call 850-435-2533 x 102.
