Bank of the Islands is proud to support the Sanibel Music Festival as its returning Website Sponsor. The bank made a $1,000 donation in support of the Festival’s website, the online portal for its ticket sales.


Celebrating its 36th anniversary of producing this volunteer-driven annual event, the Festival presents classical music performances of the highest standard at affordable prices, often promoting the careers of emerging artists.


“The volunteer-driven Sanibel Music Festival is so grateful to Bank of the Islands,” said Festival President Jana Stone. “Sponsoring our web presence is so important for promoting ticket sales to the Festival performances.”


“The Sanibel Music Festival is such an important part of our islands’ cultural landscape,” said Susan Schulte, Bank of the Islands Assistant V.P., and Sanibel-Captiva Office Manager.  “As the Festival’s Website Sponsor, we hope to encourage robust ticket sales and sold-out performances. It’s a great way to show how much we appreciate being your island bank!” All islanders and visitors are encouraged to visit to purchase tickets. The 2023 Festival will include six concerts from March 4-28 in its “Save March for Music” season of piano, chamber music, recital and vocal ensembles. Ticket prices are set at $50 for adults and $25 for students. Due to ongoing hurricane recovery at its traditional Sanibel venue, this year’s Festival performances will take place at Peace Lutheran Church, 15840 McGregor Blvd, in Fort Myers.
