As the Florida Orchestra wraps up its revised 2020-21 season, it announces its 2021-22 season beginning in the fall. While the past season saw fewer musicians on stage, reduced audience size and shows at just one venue, the new season brings back a full symphony with full audiences at venues across Tampa Bay.

The season will kick off with the Tampa Bay Times Masterworks series featuring a concert of two powerful masterpieces, Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony and Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, conducted by music director Michael Francis. It runs Sept. 24-26 at three venues, the David A. Straz Jr. Center for the Performing Arts in Tampa, the Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg and Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater.

Concerts will continue to be streamed on the orchestra’s website. Season tickets are on sale now.
