Dear Friends of Sanibel Music Festival,
Because of circumstances beyond our control, our 35th Anniversary season has been extended into next year. Due to health issues, The Emerson String Quartet has to postpone their March 26, 2022, concert to March 4, 2023.

The 2023 season promises to be diverse and memorable. Following the Emerson String Quartet concert, the lauded Calidore String Quartet will perform on March 11, followed by the Boston Chamber Music Society on March 14.
