OSO Partners with Seminole State College

Re: Seminole State College & Orlando Symphony Orchestra

As the new dean of Arts and Communications at Seminole State College, I am excited to have the opportunity to develop an ongoing collaboration with the Orlando Symphony Orchestra.  We have submitted a grant to fund a Latin American Festival for Fall 2019. We are also looking into other funding sources with a plan to bring back the Orlando Symphony Orchestra even sooner, in Spring 2019.  Ultimately, a yearly residency of 4 events a year would enhance our mission to provide cultural vitality to our community.

Seminole State represents a diverse scholarly community that promotes a foundation of reasoned inquiry that enables students to develop philosophical, ethical, scientific and artistic knowledge.  My goal is to promote awareness of the transformative power of the arts and communication studies through the multiple outlets our Center for Fine and Performing Arts offers as well as the academic programs within the Arts and Communications Department. We can achieve this in part through our relationship with the Orlando Symphony Orchestra which will enhance our students’ learning and enrich our community through professional performances throughout the year.

I look forward to a longstanding partnership.
