On March 2, the Church of the Redeemer, located at 222 S. Palm Ave. in downtown Sarasota, will host a memorial concert in honor of Patricia Stenberg, former principal oboe for the Sarasota Orchestra, the church has announced. The event is scheduled for 4 p.m. Each year, the Sarasota-Manatee Alumnae chapter of Sigma Alpha Iota (SAI), an inter- national women's music fraternity, presents a concert in Stenberg's name to raise funds for local music education efforts, a news release explains. Stenberg, who passed away in 2002, served as both local chapter presi- dent and national president of the fraternity, the release notes. "Patricia Stenberg was a musician's musi- cian, and an outstanding player," said Redeemer organist and choirmaster Ann Stephenson-Moe in the release. "This con- cert, which raises money to help aspiring musicians, is a fitting tribute to her passion for music." Stenberg also served as a conductor with the Sarasota Pops Orchestra. Tickets are $10 if purchased in advance through Redeemer's parish office; $12 at the door the day of the concert. The parish office is typically open between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. For more infor- mation, visit or call 955-4263. Founded in 1903, SAI is an international women's music fraternity that works to bring together women who are interested in music on college campuses around the world, the release adds. The fraternity encourages female musicians of all ages, races and nation- alities while cultivating excellence in music performance, it notes. The Church of the Redeemer is located on South Palm Avenue in Sarasota. Photo by Norman Schimmel CHURCH OF THE REDEEMER TO HOST FUNDRAISING CONCERT RELIGION BRIEFS
