Sinfonia Gulf Coast
As the region’s only fully professional symphony orchestra, Sinfonia Gulf Coast presents high-caliber events and provides educational initiatives throughout the Northwest Florida Gulf Coast region.
Energetic conductor Demetrius Fuller has garnered critical acclaim both at home and abroad. He has redefined the cultural landscape of Northwest Florida by offering inspiring and artistically evocative performances, exciting critics and patrons alike.
At the helm of Sinfonia Gulf Coast, Fuller has been fortunate to work with various icons in the music industry including Kristin Chenoweth, Roberta Flack, Patti LuPone, Bernadette Peters, and many more talented artists.
Since its founding, Sinfonia Gulf Coast has presented hundreds of concerts and events and has collaborated with numerous nonprofits and businesses throughout the community. Significant partnerships supporting local arts organizations have included Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation, through the "Paint the Music" program and free orchestra concerts for third through eighth graders; Northwest Florida Ballet; the Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County, and the Okaloosa Arts Alliance.
Sinfonia has reached more than 100,000 children through its music education outreach initiatives. The Sinfonia Youth Orchestra program is the premier training orchestra in Northwest Florida and consists of more than sixty students who participate in a variety of ensembles that perform throughout the school year. The youth strings or Sinfonietta Strings, focuses on developing beginning string students to prepare them for the full orchestra. Additionally, students engage in chamber music ensembles and participate in master classes given by visiting guest artists and current principal musicians from Sinfonia Gulf Coast.
Proceeds from the all events benefit Sinfonia Gulf Coast and its music education programs, which include musicians/guest artists in schools, free orchestra concerts, bus transportation for students, Sinfonia Youth Orchestra program, Arts in Medicine with Sacred Heart Hospital on the Emerald Coast, LINK UP concerts with third through fifth grades in participation with Carnegie Hall’s Weill Institute of Music, the annual Paint the Music Project, and more.
