  • Tales of Legendary Florida (Viva Florida version)

    A multi-media concert that celebrates 500 years of Florida History. Music, stories, and visual art turn the pages of 500 exciting years of the rich heritage that is Florida. Journey through time with images of unspoiled Florida and the plaintive flute voices of the earliest inhabitants, crest the waves to the landing, conquests, and adventures of Ponce de Leon and De Soto, step into the gentle footsteps of environmentalist William Bartram, and boogie on the 1902 rails of Henry Flagler’s railroad across-the-sea.

    Florida’s history, like America’s, is one of youthful energy. It is one of Spanish explorers and immigrants, of people still seeking the Fountain of Youth, of cowboys, and those seeking frontiers in space. Within the boundaries of the state is the oldest occupied city in North America, as well as the launching site of the first manned trip to the moon. Ponce de Leon named the peninsula La Florida because it reminded him of the Spanish ‘feast of flowers.’ The poet Elizabeth Bishop rhapsodized that Florida is ‘the state with the prettiest name.’ COME!  Journey into the Tales of Legendary Florida with me!
