Despite continuing difficulties with ticket sales in its Classical Series, the Broward Center is forging ahead and will expand its classical offerings from three events to four in the 2016-17 season.

The season will open with Keith Lockhart leading the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra on February 1. Violinist Itzhak Perlman will follow on March 9.

The Royal Scottish National Orchestra will come to Fort Lauderdale March 13, marking the ensemble’s 125th anniversary season. Music director Peter Oundjian leads the orchestra in the Overture to Borodin’s Prince Igor and Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 4, with Nicola Benedetti as soloist in Brahms’ Violin Concerto.

The season ends April 12 with a Lenten performance of Bach’s Mass in B minor by the Internationale Bachakademie Stuttgart. Conductor Hans-Christoph Rademann will direct the Bach-Collegium Stuttgart and Gächinger Kantorei in Bach’s cornerstone mass.

Subscriptions for the four-concert series go on sale June 6 with single tickets available September 23. or; 954-462-0222.
