What is FusionFest?
FusionFest is an annual city bash lasting two days on Thanksgiving Weekend. It’s full of color, energy, music, food, dance, crafts and faiths of the world: all represented by the citizens of Orlando, Florida: the most diverse city in the world.
I will attempt to create exciting music fitting for our city – something to capture it’s attitude and celebrate it’s magnitude. The Opening Spectacle will bring forth large musical forces to open each day of the festival.
would you like to contribute your musical gifts?
At the time of this writing, we’re deciding what the forces will be. There’s a long way to go, but there’s talk about a brass fanfare with my train horns on the surrounding rooftops, like last year. Last year we included Polynesian chant and conch calls. Maybe that will work again (but not from the rooftops like last year). I’d like to add African drumming, perhaps from the islands. Maybe we’ll be able to have the UCF choir join us. If your imagination is flying with ideas, contact me while we’re in the early stages of design!
