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.

We are continuing our work with a second season of Changing Our World, including LGBT rights, the refugee crisis, prison reform, disability rights and clean water. Season 9 also sees the return of the SFCE to the Pompano Beach Cultural Center as well as a continuation of our series at the Miramar Cultural Center. Tickets available starting August 1, 2019.
