ARTISTIC DIRECTOR WELCOME MISSION STATEMENT

Key Chorale, the Suncoast’s premier symphonic chorus, is dedicated to transforming lives through innovative programming, artistic excellence, educational outreach and service to the community.

This anniversary season is going to be the biggest and boldest in our history. We’ll take you to unexpected places exploring almost every corner of choral music in unique one-of-a-kind concert experiences. Through dynamic collaborations with Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe, The Sarasota Ballet, The Venice Symphony, and The Circus Arts Conservatory, we are able to create unforgettable programs that continue to push the boundaries of choral music.

“Caulkins...has made a commitment not only to a daringly innovative repertoire, but to regularly joining forces with other... performers to produce mulit-faceted programs that are rich with reward thanks to these disparate unions.” - Carrie Seidman, Herald-Tribune World class guests bring their artistry to this celebratory season including: audience-favorite Mary Wilson performing Haydn’s incredible masterpiece The Creation, The DePue Brothers Band featuring four fiddle playing brothers for our bluegrass inspired show Grassical, Dan Jordan, Concertmaster of the Sarasota Orchestra and Principal Trumpet Anthony Limoncelli adding the brilliance and sparkle to ballet in Winter Dreams.

– Maestro Joseph Caulkins

Why Key Chorale Needs Your Support! Your generosity helps Key Chorale continue to bring the life-changing power of music to our community – be it giving voice to those living with Parkinson’s, dementia, and Alzheimer’s or helping more than 400 students sing out like never before with our ever-expanding educational outreach programming, Key Chorale is making a difference in the lives of people through music. Key Chorale, the Suncoast’s premier symphonic chorus, led by Maestro Joseph Caulkins, produces unique and one-of-a-kind programming, collaborations that inspire, and musical artistry that stirs the soul.

Help us to bring music to the 100 students of Visible Men Academy, instill that spark in a high school student, give 140 hours of free voice lessons to our 18 student scholars, establish a new choir for those afflicted with Alzheimer’s and dementia, continue to share the transformative power of choral music with diverse groups of people and to keep our entire community singing.
