Crescendo! is an exciting cultural extravaganza to benefit Sinfonia Gulf Coast and its music education and community engagement initiatives throughout Northwest Florida. Known for producing the highest caliber concerts and events along Northwest Florida’s Gulf Coast, Sinfonia “redefines” charitable events with this energy-infused experience that celebrates the cultural and culinary arts by showcasing world-class vintners, ‘celebrity chefs’, expert spirit purveyors, amazing auction items, and award-winning musical guests. 



• Link Up program in conjunction with Carnegie Hall

• Live orchestra performances for students including bus transportation

• Musicians in schools

• Guest Artists in schools

• Youth Orchestra programs

• Arts in Medicine with Sacred Heart Hospital

Sinfonia’s 2018 LINK UP program was its largest to date and in many cases, this program is the only music education curriculum these children receive the entire school year. Since 2007, Sinfonia has impacted more than 115,000 school children in Okaloosa and Walton Counties. 

As a member of the Treble Makers, your contribution will enable Sinfonia Gulf Coast to continue to perform some of its more important music — music for our children.

With your support, we can “sound off” in a significant way and “treble on”…
