Media Picks: June 2013
What I’m Listening To
RoseAnne McCabe, administrative director of this month’s Sarasota Music Festival
Classical excerpts at work; when I come home I usually listen to Adele on Pandora. When I’m winding down and preparing dinner for three kids it sets just the right tone.
What I’m Watching
Samy Ramadane, IMG Academy soccer player and National Merit Scholarship finalist

What I’m Reading
Georgia Court, owner of downtown’s Bookstore1Sarasota
