About CFCArts Symphony Orchestra

The CFCArts Symphony Orchestra is the largest community orchestra in the United States, with more than 225 diverse musicians from throughout Central Florida. CFCArts exists to serve and build community through the arts, operating a series of non-auditioned programs designed specifically to lift barriers and boost accessibility. These programs include the nation's largest community choir, a musical theatre troupe designed for young adults with exceptionalities, programs designed specifically for seniors, and an innovative School of Arts and Health.


SACHA is one of country music’s fastest rising stars, making a name for herself in the U.S. and Canada since the release of her debut EP in 2020. The breakout artist was named to CMT’s 2021 Next Women Of Country class and earned her first platinum single with the viral hit track “What The Truck” (with The Reklaws), which was the fastest Canadian country song to go platinum in history. In 2022 SACHA released her sophomore EP We Did, which saw the music video for its track "Pretty Please" debut in Times Square, and spent the fall touring the U.S. with Maddie and Tae. She’s kicking off 2023 with the release of her new single, "Confident" featuring Tyler Shaw.

About Andrew McMahon

If anyone understands renewal, it’s Andrew McMahon. Over the last two decades, the veteran indie-pop singer-songwriter has experienced musical rebirth many times, ever since he started entertaining audiences in the ‘00s alt-pop outfit Something Corporate, and he’s consistently arrived on the other side stronger than ever. After leading Something Corporate to major chart success in the early 2000s, McMahon soon resurfaced with the more personal solo project Jack’s Mannequin. On the cusp of releasing their 2005 debut, he was diagnosed with leukemia at age 22. Eventually fully recovered, McMahon went on to release two more studio albums with Jack's Mannequin and established The Dear Jack Foundation, which provides programming to benefit adolescents and young adults diagnosed with cancer. McMahon then earned an Emmy Award nomination for songs he composed for the NBC series Smash, and in 2014 released Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness, which also became his moniker. McMahon is currently releasing music from his new album Tilt At The Wind No More, out March 31 on Nettwerk Music Group.


The Gay Men’s Chorus of South Florida brings live music and entertainment to the community through large-scale, main-stage concerts in high-profile venues, community-based engagements, and volunteer projects. More than 20,000 people are inspired and moved each year by the Chorus's music, community outreach, and mission, making it a significant LGBTQ+ nonprofit service organization and cultural asset in the heart of South Florida. GMCSF performs at Florida Panthers games each season. Visit GMCSF.org for more information.
