Art, Music, Drama, Dance, Comedy: They’re Happening All the Time
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – When it comes to the arts, there’s something to see, hear or even join – yes join – every day of the week.
Don’t just think King Center, Eau Gallie Art District or Titusville Playhouse. It’s in churches, community centers and schools.
Nowhere was that more apparent than at the recent Cultural Arts Showcase at the King Center for the Performing Arts.
The Brevard Symphony Orchestra with a great performance of Peter and the Wolf, complete with dramatic narration was the centerpiece, but performances by the Space Coast Ballet Academy, the Not Quite Right Comedy Improv Group and the Platinum Coast Chorus of Sweet Adelines – to name just a few – also drew lots of applause.
Then there were the recruiters. They ranged from the Camera Club of Brevard to the Strawbridge Art League.
The Central Florida Winds to the New Horizons Band. If you ever sang in a choir, played an instrument or painted a landscape, there is a group to join and have fun doing art and music.
Just Goggle Brevard Cultural Alliance and you’ll find all the member groups and their contact information.
The King Center is in its 27th year of providing the best in performing arts and entertainment along the Space Coast.
The Eau Gallie Arts District is dedicated to promoting the arts and economic revitalization of the historic Eau Gallie downtown area.
