The program will also include several works that celebrate the joy of singing, something that chorus members missed so much during the pandemic.  One of the concert pieces, which the singers began learning via Zoom, is Joseph Martin’s “The Awakening,” a haunting work that explores the despair when music disappeared, and the exhilaration of welcoming live music back into our lives.

Pompano Beach Seafood Festival – April 22-24, 2022

 It’s official! The 2021 POMPANO BEACH SEAFOOD FESTIVAL has been cancelled, with plans to return in full-force April 22-24, 2022.

“While we are disappointed, it is unrealistic to think we will be out of Covid restrictions by April,” said Festival Manager John Good.  “The Seafood Festival is all about people gathering for food, music and fun.  It does not work in a mask-wearing social distancing environment.”

“We agreed with city officials that it will be well into the summer or later before events like ours can even be considered.  I want to thank the city and in particular Assistant City Manager Earl Bosworth for keeping lines of communication open as we worked our way through the options, before making this decision.”

For more than 35 years, the Seafood Festival, a not-for profit corporation, has been a cornerstone event in Pompano Beach that benefits a wide range of local charities and civic organizations.  The festival tradition will be back at Community Park, with a refurbished (and covered) Amphitheater, April 22-24, 2022.

Festival officials want to thank not only the city, but all sponsors and vendors for their continuing support. [More info…]

SunFest postponed to April 28, 2022

SunFest officials announced today that they would not move forward with a reimagined event tentatively set for April 30 – May 2, 2021. The nonprofit festival, which has helped fans celebrate music and art for almost 40 years, was canceled in 2020 in light of the pandemic. 

“While we knew that hosting a traditional SunFest would be challenging, we believed that the possible reward for our fans was worth the attempt,” said Paul Jamieson, SunFest executive director. “We were driven by the idea that our fans needed something to look forward to.”

Fans who purchased a ticket for 2020 will now have an extra incentive to continue to roll over the same ticket to 2022.  “We want to say thank you to our fans for their loyalty and we are offering a ‘share SunFest with a friend’ ticket option – those who are holding onto a ticket from 2020 can now bring one friend to SunFest 2022 on us,” said Jamieson. 

Save the dates of Thursday, April 28 – Sunday, May 1 for SunFest 2022. For more information about SunFest or to inquire about the ticket roll-over plan, please visit www.SunFest.com or call 561-659-5980.
