Season Opening Concert Proceeds Benefit Bahamas Relief on September 14


With parts of the Bahamas devastated by Hurricane Dorian, the School of Music will dedicate a portion of ticket proceeds from its 2019-2020 season opening concert on Saturday, September 14th to the FIU Strong campaign.

The benefit concert is a kickoff to Hispanic Heritage Month featuring Daniella Mass, a finalist in “Americas Got Talent,” 7/4 Ensemble, the FIU Symphony Orchestra & Brass Choir, and Furia Flamenca in an evening of Latin inspired performances including zarzula.

“Our School would like to bring the community together as music always does,” says Karen S. Fuller-Veloz, Interim Director of the FIU School of Music. “As Ray Charles stated…’Music is powerful. As people listen to it, they can be affected. They respond.’ We are responding to our neighbors in need and I hope that this small token of bringing together our talents, time, and treasure will assist in the aid efforts of those in most need from this terrible tragedy.”

Help support our students, faculty, and staff from The Bahamas who have been impacted by Hurricane Dorian. Join us in being #FIUstrong. Cash donations are also taken at the door.
