Central Florida Community Arts is a non-profit 501(c)(3) Musical Arts organization that believes every artist of every age should have a cultural platform to connect, serve, & perform!
We strive to tie everything we do into one or more of our three main purposes: connecting, serving, and performing.
Connect – Connecting is about building relationships. We aim to create a family that allows people to use their talents and abilities – to be able to sing, play instruments and perform together, all while building lasting connections.
Serve - Our heartbeat is serve and to give back to the community. To do this, we partner with local non profits and charities and perform at their fundraisers or for the clients they serve, at no cost.
Perform – Members of our Choir, Orchestra and Children & Youth Arts programs all have the opportunity to perform in seasonal productions. We also offer music lessons, workshops and classes at our School of Performing Arts, and thereby equip local artists to do what they do, even better!
Success in the new venture came early – after a successful Kick Off in February 2011, CFCArts performed their inaugural concert to over 1,200 people in May of 2011, with a choir of over 130 singers and an orchestra of over 35 players. That choir has since reached 275 members and their last concert reached nearly 3,200 patrons. CFCArts now also has a 70-piece community orchestra, 80 kids registered in their program for school-age children, and a pro-level vocal group called Legacy!, that acts as the organization’s vocal ambassadors to the community. CFCArts has served over 40 non-profit community organizations by performing at their fundraisers or for their clients at no cost, and hosted a musical summer camp program for nearly 100 children, half of which were from local foster care programs, homeless shelters and the Boys & Girls Club – those underprivileged youths were enrolled for free, in order to introduce them to the arts. Most recently, CFCArts has opened a School for Performing Arts in order to offer affordable lessons and workshops in applied arts to Central Floridians of all ages.
CFCArts’ success continues, they are confident about their vision and look forward to the future.
