About Us

Our Mission

To transform our community through arts education for all and professional performances that inspire.

‍We are re-imagining the future of vocal arts.

Central Florida Vocal Arts and Opera del Sol provide a space for our students and audiences to feel, to heal and to connect with others and perhaps most importantly, with the most authentic version of themselves. By transforming individuals, we transform the whole Central Florida community.

We affirm that all people deserve the opportunity to have a rich and inspired life through meaningful arts experiences. We strive to mitigate barriers and create equitable access to arts education and performance opportunities, through which we cultivate confidence, creativity and connection. Guided by our core values of Excellence, Impact, Inclusivity, and Equity, we offer programming of the highest calibre that is accessible to our whole community.

We offer diverse arts education programs, serving artists of all ages, backgrounds and skill levels. These programs focus on individual performance, encouraging students to reach their greatest potential for self-actualization both in the artistic and personal pursuits.

Through compelling performances that partner with relevant community partners, we inspire audiences through the magic of theatre. These performances both spark joy and challenge audiences to be catalysts for positive change in their own lives.

Justice, Equity, Diversity, Inclusion & Accessibility

Notwithstanding any provision of the Central Florida Vocal Arts’ Bylaws, the Corporation shall not discriminate against any director, officer, employee, applicant, or participant on the basis of sex, gender identity, race, color, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion or national origin. Casting decisions will coincide with character description and vocal needs set forth by composer, performance history and creative direction set forth by the production team.

We believe ALL people are artists and deserve access to quality arts experiences, regardless of income, race, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, religious affiliation, or age.

We actively strive for color-conscious casting and increased diversity and intersectionality at all levels of our organization.

We believe accessibility extends beyond physical limitations. We strive to increase accessibility through affordable or free ticketing and offering digital options for most of our programs.

We utilize super and subtitles when appropriate in both English and other languages for audience members who are hearing impaired or do not speak the language of the piece.

We believe no child should be turned away because of financial hardship, and offer needs-based scholarships to all of our educational programs. Our partnerships with Orange County and Osceola County Public Schools also ensure accessibility to our educational programs for all young artists regardless of financial means.
