The Sound of Music

August 13 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Various prices
Central Florida Vocal Arts and Space Coast Symphony Orchestra are elated to announce their first live performance together since 2019 as they collaboratively present the musical theater classic, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s The Sound of Music. Performances will take place August 13th and 14th in the Alexis & Jim Pugh Theater at Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, followed by a touring weekend in Melbourne and Vero Beach, August 20th and 21st respectively. 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. This production challenges the audience to examine the role we each play as individuals in standing against injustice wherever it exists, while also offering a message of hope.
