South Shore Symphony Orchestra (SSSO) celebrated a great year in 2011. It successfully made the transition to its new homes, performing at St. Anne Catholic Church and rehearsing at St. John the Divine in Ruskin along with its new Conductor Dr. Susan Bailey Robinson.
SSSO has become a nonprofit organization and has joined the Chamber of Commerce in both the Sun City Center and in South Shore. It has also partnered with the Ruskin Community Development Foundation and the South Shore Arts Council.
The Orchestra has set new goals to bring music to not only the adults of the South Shore Communities but also to the youth of the area with its new youth programs that will be introduced in the coming year.
Mr. Dominick Galati, founder and president of the SSSO said, “In only its second year this organization has made great strides and the music has never sounded better. We are proud to have also been recognized by many other orchestras around Florida as one of the new, up and coming orchestras to be heard in Florida.” He also said, “The SSSO hopes with our audiences support to thrive and that they can be part of this orchestra’s success by continue this musical journey with us.”
