The Eau Gallie Arts District will launch the world premiere of the audiovisual project Sounds of the Lagoon, sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Exploration Arts! Fund at the Community Foundation for Brevard.

Sounds of the Lagoon is the multidisciplinary confluence between music and visual arts to highlight the invaluable role of the Indian River Lagoon in the life of its neighboring communities and on the larger scale of the world.

On June 30, 2023, at Eau Gallie Square Park, a string ensemble from the Brevard Symphony Orchestra will perform under the direction of maestro Christopher Confessore to present the world premiere of On the Ethereal Nature of Bioluminescence. This piece is an original work by the Puerto Rican composer and winner of the Pierre Cardin Prix of the Académie des beaux-arts, Luis Quintana, who was inspired by the sounds and natural phenomena of the Indian River Lagoon.

Along with the musical participation, Endless Media and its CEO have produced a mini film to capture the majesty of the lagoon and the creative process of translating nature into music.

The event will be free of charge and is suitable for all ages. From 6:30 pm, the public can enjoy a brief panel discussion moderated by Virginia Anzengruber, followed by the performance and streaming of the film.
