Our European Tour was a great success. We gave 4 performances in five days across three countries, serving seniors, children and adults with disabilities. We also had the opportunity to present our 2019-2020 Light Prize to Golden Globe Nominated actor Tobias Menzies. Be sure to watch him in the upcoming season of The Crown as he takes over the role of Prince Philip.
Congratulations to SFCE 2018-19 Light Prize Winner Nestor Torres
Grant Awards- FAB! and the Frederick DeLuca Foundation
We received our first grant from the Frederick DeLuca foundation to work with Meals on Wheels and Impact Broward to feed children this summer. Our project, Quatro, brings four art forms to the children including literature, music, dance and fashion design. Students learn about world culture while they eat lunch and make musical instruments from the packaging of their lunch, create a costume and perform a cultural dance.
The South Florida Chamber Ensemble receives a grant from FAB!(Funding Arts Broward) for our ninth season, Changing Our World More. Executive Director Myrna Meeroff with members of Brazilian voices at award ceremony.
