Linking the Arts

WFIT's Project Coordinator, Pam Pedersen, shares her meetings with some of Brevard's most interesting people.
Linking the Arts gives us an insider's glimpse to local events. Whether it's plays, concerts, books or dining, Linking the Arts is sure to whet your appetite for more.

Join the Brevard Community Chorus and the Eastern Florida State Concert Choir when they present Requiem for the Living, by Dan Forrest and Serenade to Music, by Ralph Vaughan Williams. Forrest will be on hand to address the audience about his best-known and much-acclaimed requiem, which offers a fresh and inspiring perspective on life, love, loss and renewal. The five-movement work has been performed dozens of times worldwide since its premiere in 2013. The 100+ voices will be accompanied by members of the Brevard Symphony Orchestra.

Please join the School of Psychology Diversity Committee for a special showing of the new original musical "Riot" performed by West Shore High School Theater Troupe 6034 under the mentorship of Ms. Mauren Fallon, West Shore Faculty and Theater Arts Director. Open to all FIT students, staff, faculty, and the general public!

Written entirely by West Shore High School theater students, Riot is a timely drama about community unrest and police violence.
