What does it mean to be a community cultural anchor? In normal times, we take pride in creating unique programming that brings people together, and in managing one of Miami Beach's signature venues. These are not normal times. Our commitment to our mission -- to serve our community by creating shared experiences through the presentation of live music -- remains strong. We also maintain our commitment to the cultural ecosystem - supporting our local and visiting musicians, our production staff and our venue staff.
We began presenting in the virtual world in mid-March, continue to learn new tricks, and help develop new forms of media. We find a silver lining in knowing that our audience is now truly global, and that there are no boundaries to the ability to collaborate and create even within Covid-19 closures. We also express gratitude to our city and county arts councils, and area donors who extended support to the local cultural community.
