On Sunday, February 25th, The Florida Intergenerational Orchestra, the orchestra for everyone, will perform “Music for Love , Humanity and the Earth” Its 2nd concert of this season at O’Shea Hall on the grounds of Our Lady of Lourdes Church, 22094 Lyons Road, Boca Raton at 3 P.M. This concert is partially endowed by the Estate of the beloved Fern Spott, the mother of Roger Spott, one of the esteemed members of our Board of Directors and Bass Clarinetist. Fern loved music and loved the orchestra.
The concert will feature music that will encourage you to realize that love can be found everywhere in the notes of a diverse collection of composers and performers. We inspire the next generation of musicians and audiences in Florida and beyond with innovative educational concert programs for all ages. We focus our efforts on bringing all families together with light classics and popular music reminiscent of the Boston Pops orchestra. For those who are more of the outdoor type you will enjoy the orchestra’s traveling to Spain to take part in a magical bullfight to the music of Espana Cani. Warning—IT MAY BE DANGEROUS TO WEAR RED TO THE CONCERT.
Listen to favorites like Leroy Anderson’s Syncopated Clock where the audience becomes part of the orchestra with its own ticking clock. Special performers will be on hand to sing excerpts from “Phantom of the Opera,” as well as some Broadway favorites. For those of us born in the 40’s the orchestra will be playing Glen Miller’s “Moonlight Serenade.” For those born in the 2000’s you might want to take a trip around Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood, listening to the music and sitting at special coloring book tables where you are not chained to your parents and you can stretch your legs and grab a crayon
