Season 2, Episode 16: Welcome to Our Carnival-SCF Bradenton Symphony Orchestra

Step right up and experience a different kind of carnival by the SCF Bradenton Symphony Orchestra on Thursday, October 14 at 7:30 p.m. in the SCF Neel Performing Arts Center. Featuring Hector Berlioz’s “Roman Carnival Overture,” the famous trumpet solo the “Carnival of Venice” with guest soloist Brandon Ridenour, and Camille Saint-Saëns’ “Carnival of theAnimals," featuring pianists Aza Torshkoeva and Maria Medina, as well as SCF Theatre major William Ashburn as narrator.
Take a listen as trumpet soloist Brandon Ridenour tells us about this life's musical work after Juilliard, becoming the youngest member ever of the Canadian Brass, his very unique connection to Sarasota and Bradenton, and why this version of the Carnival of Venice is so special to him.
This is one acoustic carnival you won’t want to miss! Tickets are available by going to or can be purchased at the door 45 minutes prior to the performance.
