The Perlman Music Program/Suncoast celebrates sixteen years of hosting the Perlman Music Program (PMP) Sarasota Winter Residency. This intensive 17-day program was founded by Toby Perlman, wife of internationally acclaimed violinist and conductor Itzhak Perlman. PMP offers unparalleled musical training for international students, ages 12 to 20+, who play the violin, viola, cello, and bass. With a faculty led by Toby and Itzhak Perlman and comprising some of the most gifted musical talents of our time, the PMP Sarasota Winter Residency offers an artistic and personal experience that changes students' lives forever.

The 16th annual PMP Sarasota Winter Residency takes place December 19, 2019 through January 4, 2020. Held in a heated performance tent on the grounds of the USF Sarasota-Manatee campus, the PMP Sarasota Winter Residency offers 20+ FREE events, including orchestra and chorus rehearsals, master classes, and student recitals. Special $10 ticketed events include Super Strings on Saturday, December 28, 2019 and a PMP Recital on January 2, 2020. The culmination of the Winter Residency is the Celebration Concert, held at the Sarasota Opera House on Saturday, January 4, 2020 at 5:00 p.m.  This much anticipated event features the PMP Chorus led by Patrick Romano and the PMP String Orchestra, under the baton of Itzhak Perlman. The complete schedule is available online in November.
