The South Shore Symphony Orchestra presents a "French Connection" concert in two performances Saturday in Sun City Center and Ruskin.

Works by Beethoven, Bizet, Offenbach, Souza and Gershwin will be presented at 3 p.m. at St. John the Divine Episcopal Church, 1015 Del Webb Blvd. E in Sun City Center and at 7 p.m. at First Baptist Church, 820 W College Ave., Ruskin.

The orchestra, conducted by Dr. Susan Bailey Robinson, will present Beethoven's Overture to Egmont "Carmen Suite No. 2 by Bizet, Offenbach's Overture to Orpheus in the Underworld, Gershwin's An American in Paris, and Souza's Liberty Bell March. All the pieces have a connection to France and its history.

Now in its fourth season, the orchestra is a blend of old and young area musicians who share a passion for music. It was founded in 2010 by Dominick Galati, a former booking agent for musicians.

Tickets are $12 and available at both church offices and at the Sun City Center and South Shore Chambers of Commerce.
