Boca Raton, Florida-On Sunday, April 10th, The Florida Intergenerational Orchestra, the orchestra for everyone, will perform its final concert of this season at O’Shea Hall on the grounds of Our Lady of Lourdes Church, 22094 Lyons Road, Boca Raton. Entitled “Love is Everywhere ” this concert is partially endowed by the Estate of the beloved Fern Spott, the mother of Roger Spott, one of the esteemed members of our Board of Directors and Bass Clarinetist.
The concert will feature music that will encourage you to realize that love can be found everywhere in the notes of a diverse collection of composers and performers. We inspire the next generation of musicians and audiences in Florida and beyond with innovative educational concert programs for all ages.

Cohan, Excerpts from George Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue.” There will be an awe inspiring rendition of The Typewriter written by the very clever Leroy Anderson with dueling typewriters manned by Roger Spott and orchestra manager Bob Field. At the end of the performance by a show of applause the audience will determine which “Typewriterist” did the best job.
There will also be a rock rendition of Wizards in Winter. Keep your bows crossed and at the ready before it is “Time to Say Goodbye..Con Te Partiro.
