August 6 program is Turandot, this Chinese tale tells the story of a princess who reluctantly falls in love, with traditional folk music from China. Make a Chinese hat and use it to do the Chinese Hat Dance.

SFCE has partnered with YAA for 4 years providing free music and literacy concerts to children and families in YAA’s Community Initiatives, primarily Art REACH for children experiencing homelessness.

The South Florida Chamber Ensemble (SFCE) is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of South Florida residents through music. The group formed in 2011 when the Art Trio and the New York Wind Trio merged. The vision of the ensemble is to use music as a catalyst for change with respect to education, social justice, economic equality, and health and healing.
