Art Groups Come Together to be Beautiful Together

Beautiful Together

Beautiful Together
An Artistic Journey Toward Hope
More than 60 local arts groups joined together on Tuesday evening at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts for a benefit performance Beautiful Together, an artistic journey toward hope.
Maestro Eric Jacobsen served as music director, conductor, and cello soloist for the performance. Aoife O’Donovan, an influential force in the international folk music scene, also joined the artist cast as a vocalist. This has been an emotional few weeks for the Orlando community and we are particularly grateful that Eric and his fiancée Aoife were able to participate, just days before their wedding. The Philharmonic is proud to be a part of the healing process for all involved in the tragic events in Orlando and we continue grieving with our City Beautiful.
We want to share this moving performance with as many people in the community as we can. The entire benefit performance is available to view online courtesy of The Creative City Project: Beautiful Together: An artistic journey toward hope.
Proceeds from this tribute performance will go towards the OneOrlando Fund.

The program for the recorded performance can be found below.
