Announcing Season 17

October 8, 2022 | Festival Team

Inspiration, stories, youth, humor, jazz, and so much more!

Festival of the Arts Boca is excited to announce the lineup for its 17th Season (March 3-12, 2023). This year, the Festival brings its nonprofit mission – delivering the best in the literary and performing arts to everyone in South Florida – to center stage, offering a season filled with youth and inspiration, with hope, heroism, and storytelling.

The season opens with one of the greatest films of all time: Fantasia Live with Orchestra. And then Opening Weekend continues with the return appearance of the Young People's Chorus of New York City, performing with the Young Singers of the Palm Beaches, and Broadway sensation Christina Maxwell. Sunday night features A Night at the Ballet: From Tchaikovsky to the Rolling Stones.
During the week, we will present three powerful Authors & Ideas talks. Noted historian and author Lynne Olson will talk about Women in the Resistance in WWII; cultural critic, writer, actor, and raconteur Fran Lebowitz will give her take on the state of the world; and author and journalist Charles Fishman will discuss the future of water.

As a special event, on Tuesday, March 7, in collaboration with Rotary Club of Boca Raton, we will present the Future Stars Competition, to feature and celebrate some of South Florida’s top young dancers and singers.
Youth will be center stage in much of this year's programming.

Our second weekend is no less exciting than the first. It includes a concert by jazz superstar Nicole Henry; Festival Orchestra Boca, under Music Director Constantine Kitsopoulos, performing Scheherazade and special solo works by young artists Kara Ravascheri, flute (winner of last year’s Festival Music Competition) and violinist Hina Khuong-Huu; and the festival concludes with a concert by the inimitable Sergio Mendes, who returns to our stage exactly six years from his last, über-popular performance with Festival Boca.
