In The Community

In addition to our performances in the concert hall, we are committed to presenting dozens of educational and community engagement activities throughout Southwest Florida.  Working with dedicated partners, our activities are just one example of how we bring our community together through music. The highlight of our engagement activities is our 20 Days of Music, which bring more than 20 free diverse events to all corners of Southwest Florida.  We are always adding additional activities, so be sure to sign up for our email list!
