“The Wedding Challenge!”

Join us for a season to remember as four couples earn complete wedding packages provided by local florists, bakers, tuxedo rentals, limousines, and more.

This unique event continues Sarasota Pops Orchestra’s tradition of supporting our local music community and providing dynamic, engaging cultural experiences.

The couple who secures the most wedding “gifts” by means of donations to the Sarasota Pops Orchestra will have their wedding or vow renewal ceremony performed at the final concert of the season at the Sarasota Opera House.

Congratulations to the following couples below that are in the running to win a grand wedding at thSarasota Opera House.

The couples will be raising donations throughout the season for the Pops Orchestra and the couple who raises the most funds will win the wedding at the Opera House. The other three couples will also win a wedding package from our sponsoring vendors, so nobody loses!

Buy your tickets, make your contributions, and help four lucky couples make their dreams come true!
