After spending 20 years as the principal pianist with the United State Army Band, Dr. Joe Holt decided it was time retire to a place that met three criteria:  by the water,  warmer weather and less politics than Washington D.C., and cultural arts opportunities. He found all of that in Sarasota, Florida.
In 2008, he  became the conductor and artistic director of Choral Artists of Sarasota,  our region's premier professional vocal ensemble, and his musical tentacles have been far reaching ever since.
This week, you will hear about Choral Artists of Sarasota's upcoming season, but also about a very special performance of a community chorus Joe has organized for the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attack, sponsored by the Sarasota Ministerial Association. That performance will take place on Saturday, September 11 at 6:00 p.m. at Patriot Plaza on the grounds of the Sarasota National Cemetery. Registration is free for this event.
Do you remember where you were on Tuesday morning, September 11, 2001? Joe Holt does, as he lived across the street from the Pentagon. Hear his story of being an Army Bandsman on that fateful day and much more on this week's episode of the Suncoast Culture Club podcast. Come along and join the club!
