Sarasota Music Club has supported music performance and education since 1930.

Suncoast Music Scholarships are offered to local students through a Sarasota Music Club and Artist Series Concerts of Sarasota partnership, formed in  2017. Scholarships are awarded to 10th through 12th grade students residing and attending school in Sarasota or Manatee County, based on auditions that are judged by invited area music professionals.

The 2023 Suncoast Music Scholarship will offer a total of $12,000. Auditions are scheduled for April 22, and 17 area high school students will be competing for these awards.

Winners will perform in a Winners Concert that will be held on May 13 at 3 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church of Sarasota. The concert will be free and open to the public, so please mark your calendar to hear the talented young musicians.
