“Last season we changed our format at the orchestra just a bit,” says Lorraine Marks-Field, the orchestra’s celebrated founder and conductor, “ and created something akin to a party atmosphere. I think that we have a few more interesting twists in this year’s opening program which will gain the attention of the whole family.”

The Florida Intergenerational Orchestra is noted for its mixture of ages and musical ability. It features an orchestra with players ages 10 to 95. The orchestra invited young players to audition this season for scholarships
