TFO General Information and Concert Series
The 2014/2015 season marks 47 years of music-making for The Florida Orchestra, which performs more than 100 concerts annually in the tri-city area of Tampa, Clearwater and St. Petersburg.  These include:
• 14-concert Tampa Bay Times Masterworks series
• 9-concert Raymond James Pops series
• 8-concert Coffee series in St. Petersburg
• 3-concert Coffee series in Clearwater
• 3-concert Rock series in St. Petersburg
• A variety of free Pops in the Parks Concerts
• A selection of Special Concerts
• A Youth Concerts series reaching thousands of 4th and 5th graders annually
MASTERWORKS:  Performing a diverse offering of symphonic and choral works spanning baroque, classical, romantic and contemporary composers, this 14-concert series features nationally and internationally recognized guest artists and conductors with performances in Tampa, St. Petersburg and Clearwater.  Musical guests provide animated and informative pre-concert talks in the hall one hour prior to each performance.
POPS: The orchestra’s 9-concert Pops series offers a broad spectrum of fun and familiar popular music, including Broadway, jazz, film music, holiday tunes, Celtic, big band, Latin, and more.  These concerts are performed in Tampa, St. Petersburg and Clearwater.

ROCK: The Florida Orchestra salutes the innovative rebel spirit of classic rockers and great symphonic composers who broke the rules in search of new sounds and self expression with these symphonic rock concerts at the Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg.

COFFEE:  Taking place in St. Petersburg and Clearwater, this morning series provides a somewhat casual format with the conductors talking to the audience about the music and the composers during the performances.  Prior to all concerts, complimentary coffee and doughnuts are served in the lobby, and pre-concert talks by the conductor with orchestra musicians are offered in the hall one hour before curtain time.

SPECIALS: Join the orchestra for a variety of special concerts, featuring anything from big screen film with orchestra to performances with exclusive guest artists.

POPS IN THE PARK:  To make concerts as accessible as possible throughout the community, the orchestra provides a series of free concerts in Tampa Bay area parks during the fall and spring.  With repertoire covering familiar symphonic favorites as well as pops tunes, thousands of people annually are able to share a picnic with family and friends while enjoying live symphonic music with The Florida Orchestra.
