Orlando Philharmonic to perform free concert for arts teachers at public schools

Posted on: March 23, 2021

On March 23, the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra will present a free outdoor concert in Orlando for performing and visual arts teachers from local Florida school districts. The concert will take place in front of the Dr. Phillips Center, which is operating a six-month-long Frontyard Festival during the pandemic. Teachers from Orange, Osceola, Seminole, Volusia, and Lake County Public Schools have been invited to the concert, entitled The Heart of the Arts: Celebrating ARTS Teachers. March is nationally designated as Arts in Our Schools Month. The Orlando Philharmonic has a long-standing partnership with Orange County Public Schools, presenting live concerts and in-school music lessons to students. “Central Florida Arts teachers have stepped up to thrive in spite of the challenging times in which we are living,” said Dr. Mary Palmer, president of the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra board. “Even in these challenging times, teachers have found new ways for students to engage in creating and sharing their work. The Orlando Philharmonic has created an evening of powerful music to celebrate and thank some of our heroes: arts teachers in our community.”
