North Suncoast Associates
This year marks the 24rd anniversary of North Suncoast Associates (NSA), a support group for The Florida Orchestra. We draw members from northern Pinellas County, Pasco County, and Hillsborough County.
NSA will work to promote the primary purpose of The Florida Orchestra, which is to enrich the life of the Tampa Bay area as it inspires, entertains, and educates a wide and diverse audience with the unique experience of live symphony music, ensuring that future generations will continue to enjoy this legacy that so magnificently celebrates the human spirit. To that end, the organization provides opportunities to work in audience development, education, fundraising, and other areas as orchestra needs and membership dictate.
Our support group of couples and singles meets three times a year at the La Quinta Inn, 21338 US 19 N, Clearwater (between Drew and Gulf to Bay) at 6:30 pm weekdays for a social hour, a brief business meeting and a musical/educational program by TFO musicians, the highlight of the evening. These meetings are open to the public.

10/10/18 6:30 p.m. NSA Tune-Up Meeting – La Quinta Inn, Clearwater

NSA offers several friend and fundraising events annually that feature musical performances as well as an opportunity to mingle with men and women who share a passion for live orchestral music be it classical, pop, or rock. We welcome persons of all ages and backgrounds, who are enchanted by music.
Save the date and help spread the word for a bravura experience!
