Community Concert Association Dedicates 2023 Season to Memory of Frank Mann
The Floridant/10208045

FORT MYERS, Fla. - Floridant -- The Fort Myers Community Concert Association will dedicate its 73rd season to the memory of the late Frank Mann, whose mother Barbara B. Mann founded the non-profit organization in 1949.  Frank Mann also was a life-long supporter of the Fort Myers Community Concert Association, which brings classical entertainment to Southwest Florida at affordable prices.

"Franklin loved the work his mother started so many years ago. He grew up in the arts, playing in his high school and university bands and singing in the church choir.  He had a true appreciation for classical artists," said his widow Mary Lee Mann, who assumed presidency of the concert association in 2011, shortly before Barbara B. Mann died at almost 101 years old.

Frank Mann also was well known for his role in local politics, having served in the Florida House of Representatives and as a Lee County Commissioner for many years.
