Bank of the Islands is proud to support the Sanibel Music Festival as its returning Website Sponsor. The Bank recently made a $1,500 donation in support of the Festival’s online portal for performance details and ticket sales. The Bank’s Sanibel office is also providing in-person ticket sales.


Celebrating its 37th anniversary of producing this volunteer-driven annual event, the Festival presents live musical performances of the highest standard at affordable prices, often promoting the careers of emerging artists.


“The Sanibel Music Festival is such an important part of our islands’ cultural landscape,” said Richard Shera, Bank of the Islands Vice President, Sanibel-Captiva Office Manager, and Loan Specialist.  “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 2024 Festival will include six concerts from March 5-23 featuring classical and chamber music, as well as vocal performances. Ticket prices are set at $50 for adults and $25 for students, and discounted packages for multiple performances are also available.


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.


Bank of the Islands is located at 1699 Periwinkle Way, at the corner of Casa Ybel Road, on Sanibel. The Captiva office is at 14812 Captiva Drive, next to the Captiva Post Office. As the oldest locally owned and managed community bank on Sanibel and Captiva, Bank of the Islands is proud to be the winner of more than 50 “Best of the Islands” awards over two decades.
