Voices of the Holocaust
Presenting the Florida premiere of Voices of the Holocaust, Gloria Musicae collaborates with the Sarasota Jewish Chorale, Sarasota Young Voices, Booker High School Music and Dance Programs, Sarasota-Manatee Dance Alliance and the Chroma Quartet in this multimedia production. This community-wide endeavor, sponsored by Clair Johnson, the Tourist Development Commission of Sarasota County and the Jewish Federation of Sarasota-Manatee, celebrates the proud defiance of the human spirit in the face of adversity through this dramatic and poignant cantata.

For the Hearing Impaired
The Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall is the first theater in Sarasota to install the revolutionary Hearing Loop System for those who suffer from hearing loss, thanks to financial support from Sertoma Sarasota. The hearing loop is the only system that transmits performers' voices from a microphone directly into a hearing aids or cochlear implants equipped with telecoils, allowing wearers to use hearing aids as wireless loudspeakers. This system complements the existing Sennheiser Infrared Listening System. Wireless headsets can be used at any seat in the auditorium and are available in both the Main and Bayside Lobbies. Sign language interpreters are available upon request through the box office.
Patrons in Wheelchairs or with Mobility Issues
Patrons in wheelchairs may enter through automatic doors in both Main and Bayside lobbies on ground level (no stairs). Accessible parking is available on the circle in front of the building and in the main parking lot. Cars must have necessary identification to qualify for these special arrangements. Patrons with mobility issues can be accommodated in restrooms off both lobbies. There is a wheelchair on the premises for emergency use, thanks to the generosity of Easter Seals.
