Central Florida Vocal Arts and Space Coast Symphony Orchestra are elated to announce their first live performance together since 2019, Rodgers & Hammersteins The Sound of Music. Though the show is a classic, this production offers a fresh take, examining the relevant themes presented in the work, especially as they relate to the invasion of Ukraine. With a mission to use the performing arts to create a stronger community, Central Florida Vocal Arts chose The Sound of Music not only for its lush vocal and instrumental lines, which highlight the depth of musical talent for which the company is known, but also for the opportunity for community discussion. As we see the brave Austrian people defy the Nazis of World War II on stage, we cannot ignore the parallels between these characters and the real people of Ukraine, as they struggle today against Russian invasion.
