Concerts

SFS audiences, we miss you! Our Concert series will program on-line concerts for the 2021 Winter/Spring season,  looking forward to a time when it will be safe to gather again.

Please join us, and help support our artists with your ticket money!

We are currently partnering with Konnectclub, a local company that has provided an easy way for us to join the world of  virtual concerts. (The co-sponsored concerts with Skandia are an exception and will use a different platform).
