Florida Intergenerational Orchestra “Home for the Holidays Concert”
December 3 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
A holiday presentation likely to bring back delightful memories of yesteryear. Delray Beach’s own, Mikaylah O’Brien, an amazingly talented vocalist, will lead a Holiday sing along performance that is sure to warm your heart.
“Last season we changed our format at the orchestra just a bit,” says Lorraine Marks-Field, the orchestra’s celebrated founder and conductor, “ and created something akin to a party atmosphere. I think that we have a few more interesting twists in this year’s opening program which will gain the attention of the whole family.”
The Florida Intergenerational Orchestra is noted for its mixture of ages and musical ability. It features an orchestra with players ages 10 to 95. The orchestra invited young players to audition this season for scholarships
The non-profit 501c3 orchestra has a repertoire similar to the “Boston Pops” in that it plays popular, and light classical music. There will be a Christmas Sing-A-Long, and a Hanukkah selection as well as a dab of Vivaldi, a touch of John Williams, and a host of other pieces celebrating this wonderful holiday season.
There will also be audience participation a Visit from Santa, A coloring table for young children and their parents/grandparents
The FLIOA will be collecting unwrapped toys for needy children to be distributed by the Rotaty Club of Boca Raton.
