PMP/Suncoast Super Strings

The PMP/Suncoast Super Strings project brings young musicians (ages 8-18), from Sarasota and Manatee counties and throughout the state of Florida, together as a group to play a select musical composition with the PMP String Orchestra under the direction of internationally acclaimed violinist and conductor, Itzhak Perlman! Preparatory workshops with local music instructors will be held to support participants.
