This year has allowed us to explore new and renewed partnerships in our community – first with Florida SouthWestern State College, then with the Peace River Botanical and Sculpture Gardens, and now with Four Points by Sheraton. While we miss our wonderful performance hall, being out and about has its benefits. Our Board of Directors has also used this unusual season to plan with leadership for a resilient future. Very promising projects are in the works. Later this spring you can expect to hear more about our progress. Punta Gorda Symphony has a long history in our community, and despite the trials of this global pandemic we will emerge stronger. When we have your support, we can do most anything. We have hopes that next season may return to normal. But as we have learned in the past 12 months, so many things are out of our control. In the meantime, we exercise patience and flexibility, and we learn to adapt. One thing, however, will never change: together, we proudly bring culture to Charlotte County. Please enjoy our season-closing concert Harborside Brass!FROM THE CHAIRMANMichael Landsberg CALL VISIT

From our musicians to our partners, from our volunteers to our patrons – these sold-out concerts are a testament to your enthusiasm. Your loyalty and engagement are the forces that drive us forward. The Community Challenge is still on – and now your gift can be doubled! As of April 2, we have raised $34,919 toward a goal of $50,000 (with a huge thanks to everyone who has already made a gift!). Now we have received a generous pledge to match the next $10,000 we raise before April 30. (Read more on page 14.) Please give what you can. We need you! Even as Florida rolls out vaccine distribution, pandemic conditions continue to pose serious uncertainty about next season. Normally, now would be the time for subscription renewals. But we are not yet able to commit to indoor concerts, nor to safely staging the full 70-musician orchestra that the planned repertoire requires. Given the uncertainty, we expect to hold on any announcement about 2021-22 until we can move forward confidently. Hopes are for news in early summer, but delays are possible. We must be patient. Please know that if you are a subscriber with money on account, you will still be able to apply it to tickets and to charitable gifts for next season. You know that our staff will make every effort to work with you. After all, we are yours and you are our community. PUNTA GORDA SYMPHONY | TEMPO APRIL 2021 | 7

PUNTA GORDA SYMPHONY | TEMPO APRIL 2021 | 15MAESTRO RAFFAELE PONTIMaestro Ponti’s impact on the Punta Gorda Symphony and the cultural life of Charlotte County is well known. Over the years, his dynamic personality and charismatic performances have inspired musicians, enriched the lives of our children and thrilled audiences in our community. In addition to his role as our Music Director, he continues to serve as Artistic Director of the Paducah Symphony Orchestra and Visiting Instructor in Orchestral Studies with Florida International University in Miami. He has appeared with prominent orchestras throughout the U.S. and Europe, and has been awarded a number of international awards. Maestro Ponti is a champion of music education in the community with school visits, master classes and open rehearsals. In 2018, he and the orchestra were invited to participate in the prestigious Carnegie Link Up program, a national grade school music education program which culminates in our annual Young People’s Concert. His community outreach also extends to adults, with his exciting in-season series Behind the Notes, Medical Grand Rounds and the popular pre-performance talks. Raffaele Ponti’s reviews have dubbed him as a “rising star”, “charismatic”, “electrifying”, “empowering” and his audiences agree. We in Southwest Florida are indeed fortunate that he has made this his home.MUSIC DIRECTOR AND CONDUCTOR

PUNTA GORDA SYMPHONY | TEMPO APRIL 2021 | 17FACTS ABOUT PUNTA GORDA SYMPHONY Punta Gorda Symphony was originally formed in 1978 as a small chamber group, and by 2020 had grown in size to more than 70 professional musicians drawing audiences from around the world. The current 20/21 season marks our eighth under the direction of Maestro Raffaele Ponti. We continue to flourish under his compelling programmatic choices and rich, expressive conducting. Maestro Ponti is a graduate of the prestigious Cleveland Institute of Music. Guest Artists have been nominated for Grammy Awards, among others. Orchestra Musicians represent some of the most well-regarded universities and peer orchestras in the country. Concerts in our home venue at the Charlotte Performing Arts Center regularly sell out; we perform six concerts in a normal subscription season, with a capacity of 869 tickets each. In the 19/20 season, tickets were purchased by 1,157 households, of whom 89% were Florida residents and a full 86% with local addresses. In the recent 19/20 season, sponsorships partly underwrote 80% of our mainstage concerts, 66% of our guest artists, and 27% of the orchestra’s musicians – all numbers that we are in a position to grow. PGSymphony is dedicated to providing music education for the area’s youth. In a normal year we serve 1,200 third-graders through an interactive concert curriculum provided by Carnegie Hall, and average 40 campers at our Summer Music Camp. In fall of 2019 we adopted Hope Academy of Music, lending instruments and providing group lessons in after-school programs. Education continues throughout life. In a normal year Behind the Notes provides insight into composer history and music appreciation. Medical Grand Rounds, a sponsor-led lecture series, highlights the intersection of medicine and music. The Maestro’s popular Pre-Concert Talks enhance the audience experience of his programming. Our volunteer affiliate group Symphony Friends organizes social and volunteer activities that benefit, promote, and serve Punta Gorda Symphony while providing friendship through a common interest. Our 20/21 season, modified due to COVID-19, will feature outdoor socially-distanced concerts and an online live-streamed lecture series. PGSymphony welcomes new partnerships and collaborations with like-minded organizations across the region.Investments are not a deposit or other obligation of, or guaranteed by, the bank, are not FDIC insured, not insured by any federal government agency, and are subject to investment risks, including possible loss of principal.www.charlottestatebank.com | 2331 Tamiami Trail, Punta GordaW congratulat th Punt Gord Symphon fo man eason wel playe.
