Big day for Brahms



Devotees of Johannes Brahms have to make a choice on March 6. Should they go to hear the Charlotte County Symphony or the Gulf Coast Symphony?

Maestro Raffaele Ponti and his orchestra will present Symphony No. 1, Opus 68, in C minor by Brahms along with Violin Concerto, Opus 47, in D minor by Jean Sibelius at 7:30 p.m. The concert will be at the Charlotte Performing Arts Center, 701 Carmalita St. in Punta Gorda. Individual tickets are $50. Call 941-205-5996 for availability.

The Gulf Coast Symphony under the direction of Maestro Andrew Kurtz will offer the blockbuster German Requiem at Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall at 7:00 p.m. The symphony will be joined by the Fort Myers Symphonic Mastersingers, the Fort Myers High School Greenwave Singers, soprano Ilana Davidson and baritone Paul Corujo. The concert also features the world premiere of Walt’s America for chorus, orchestra, and soloists by award-winning composer Robert Paterson. This work was commissioned by the Gulf Coast Symphony as part of its 2020 Commissioning Project. Tickets start at $22 for nosebleed territory and go up from there. Call the box office at 239-481-4849
