The Perlman Music Program/Suncoast (Perlman Suncoast) cultivates audiences of all ages through classical music performances and education outreach programs, including hosting the annual Perlman Music Program Sarasota Winter Residency on the campus of USF Sarasota-Manatee. Through its relationship with PMP, founded by Toby Perlman, and with a world-renown faculty, including internationally- acclaimed violinist and conductor Itzhak Perlman, Perlman Suncoast offers the public the unique opportunity to witness the talent and spirit of extraordinarily gifted and promising young string students and accomplished graduates.
