Timucua Arts FoundationOrlando, FL
The mission of the Timucua Arts Foundation is to present and inspire great music and art in Central Florida through performance and education.
We have presented over 900 concerts, premiered thousands of new works, and are still going strong.
We present about 100 concerts a year at Timucua, our living-room-concert-hall. Musicians and visual artists performances are live-streamed and recorded, with a high quality audio and video recording given to every performer free of charge.
In 2016 we launched Works with Sounds, a music composition class that is free and open to all ages and skill levels and meets at the Downtown Orlando branch of the Orange County Public Library.
We also foster three constituent presenting organizations: Accidental Music Festival, Central Florida Composers Forum, and the Civic Minded 5. Taken as a whole, Timucua is the premier presenter of contemporary classical and jazz music in Central Florida by international and local artists.
Our ensemble-in-residence, Alterity Chamber Orchestra, has made dozens of world premieres, as well as local premieres by John Adams, Nina Young, Chris Cerrone, Andrew Norman, and many others.
