We make a point of coming to the Van Wezel during our annual visit to Sarasota whatever is playing and we are never disappointed. Apart from the shows we marvel at the wonderful architecture and location of the Hall. http://www.vanwezel.org

The amazing quality of this hall is spectacular. The presentations are the best in all the area with every seat being a great view of the performances. The staff is kind and informative and very professional. Truly a pleasure and a blessing to have this gem in our area. Formality and informality combine to make a wonderful artistic evening out.

We are so fortunate to have such culture in our small town of Sarasota. Along with the symphony, opera and ballet, the Van Wezel brings national touring company productions, broadway shows and Las Vegas type entertainers.
