Opera Gears Up For 50th Anniversary Celebration! ORLANDO
Its an achievement ready to be added to Orlandos
history books while setting the stage for future vibrancy for the
arts and cultural scene in Central Florida. Orlando Opera announces
its 50th Anniversary celebration, a new design for its website,
and an exciting new logo! Orlando
Operas history includes a humble beginning as a project of
the Junior League of Greater Orlando when in 1958 it hosted the
first Opera Gala at the Orlando Municipal Auditorium. Over the years
the company has brought in such notables as Plácido Domingo,
Beverly Sills, Luciano Pavarotti, Jessye Norman, and Cecilia Bartoli
to thrill local audiences with their talents. In March of 1979,
Orlando Opera became a professional opera company upon its entrance
into OPERA America, the service organization of full professional
opera companies. It is currently a $2.7 million company with performances
and education programs that reach over 125,000 people throughout
the state of Florida.
Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens Announces $1 Million Gift JACKSONVILLE
The Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens announces a $1 million
gift from J. Wayne and Delores Barr Weaver to establish an endowment
fund for the Weaver Academy of Art at The Cummer, a newly created
program for socially and economically disadvantaged children. We
are proud to acknowledge the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens as
a wonderful Jacksonville resource through our most recent gift,
said Delores Barr Weaver. This endowment will ensure that underserved
children and public schools in Duval County will benefit from the
Weaver Academy of Art at The Cummer program in perpetuity. The
Weaver Academy of Art at The Cummer will include continuing art education
for teachers, annual tours of The Cummer, outreach visits to selected
schools by Cummer staff and vouchers for free visits to the museum
for participating children and their families. This multi-faceted
program targets children in Duval County elementary schools who are
not currently served by Art Connections, The Cummers education
center, or the countys art tours program.
Center for the Arts Announces Official Poster Artwork for the 30th
Annual Leesburg Fine Art Festival
LEESBURG - "The Mote Morris House" in pastels, by artist
Katherine Cook, has been chosen as the official poster artwork for
the 30th Annual Leesburg Fine Art Festival. Kathy is known to many
as the founder of the Leesburg Center for the Arts, but she is also
an accomplished artist with this being her 3rd commissioned piece
for festival posters in Leesburg. She created the original "Meet
Me Downtown" work for the 25th Annual Leesburg Fine Art Festival.
She is also the artist who painted the 2007 Leesburg Mardi Gras poster
art, commissioned by the Leesburg Partnership. An
artist, a teacher, and a visionary, Kathy Cook has revived a new interest
in the arts in the City of Leesburg over the past 7 years. It is only
fitting that her vision of the Mote Morris House, one of the icons
of Historic Downtown Leesburg, be the centerpiece of this anniversary
show during Leesburg's Sesquicentennial Celebration.
Theatre Company Receives Million Dollar Pledge From Henrietta, Countess
BOCA RATON Countess Henrietta de Hoernle has made a pledge
of $1 million toward the construction of a new home for Caldwell
Theatre Company. The pledge will be the pace-setting gift of a $7
million capital campaign that will soon be launched to complete
financing of the Theater just north of its present location. The
Countess de Hoernles commitment was solidified this past month
with her payment of more than half the pledge during her visit to
the construction site. The facility is expected to open later in
2007. Clive Cholerton, Chair of Caldwell Theater Companys
Board of Trustees, will lead the campaign. Joining him on the campaign
committee are Helen Ballerano and Randy James. The committee is
in process of formation. The Countess, who refers to Caldwell Theatre
Company as The pride of Boca Raton, has been a long-time
friend of the Theater. She asked that all friends of Caldwell Theatre
Company, as well as lovers of theater in south Palm Beach County,
use the campaign as an opportunity to make gifts in honor of family
and friends. Caldwell Theatre Company will name the new facility
The Count de Hoernle Theatre, in honor of the Countess late
husband Adolph. Michael Hall, one of Caldwells founders and
its Artistic Director for the past 32 years, said, this campaign,
energized by the magnificent gift of the Countess, will assure that
Caldwell Theatre Company will remain an integral and powerful force
in the artistic life of the community. When completed in Fall
of 2007, the new Caldwell Theatre Company will be the anchor of
North Boca Village Center, a thriving mixed-use lifestyle development
that includes housing, restaurants and shopping venues.
