The orchestra was founded in 1990 by Dr. Leo Walz and was led by Dr. Walz for 10 years.

Daniel Andai, current Music Director and Principal Conductor, and former orchestra member and concertmaster, continues the great tradition of fabulous music making and passionate performances.

Art Mama Moves is an underground art movement originally based in South Florida. With an eye on the political and a soul of creation, it is our mission to address the "not so pretty" perspective of women artists who operate in a commercial, male dominated art community. Art for Art's sake is our driving force and we embrace the subversive, the hedonistic flirtation with organized chaos that happens when a diverse collection of artists come together to celebrate each other as well as the women who inspire us.
It is our goal to give woman centered artists a space to exhibit our work outside the confines of sexual exploitation, corporate greed or any uninspired commercial aesthetic. Come as you are, no need to modify. We don't charge any submission fees, only commission on work sold. Money should never hinder expression. 
Art Mama Moves is above all else a safe space for artists to express ourselves. A space to celebrate the strength and resilience of women who have inspired us politically, musically, visually or simply from a heart of pure love. Join us as we celebrate women who have rocked us and society to the core.

Experience wild Florida with this guide to 100 off-the-grid hikes from every corner of the state. Florida’s five water management districts encompass millions of acres of public property that include thousands of miles of public trails. In Backcountry Trails of Florida, Terri Mashour explains where to find these little-known routes, which ecosystems they feature, and how to plan your perfect outdoor adventure.

Mashour describes the hidden wonders hikers will discover in each district. Northwest Florida offers views of sandhills, clear and cold springs, and river bluffs. The Suwannee River area is crisscrossed with meandering creeks. In the St. Johns River watershed, conservation lands include large cattle ranches, lakeshores, and levee restoration projects. In Southwest Florida, manatee swim up rivers from the Gulf of Mexico. And the South Florida district is home to water treatment areas, pine flatwoods, and the mangrove islands of the Everglades.

As a former land manager who has taken care of many of the areas these trails cross, Mashour shares her experiences working with cowboys and ranchers and her love of the Florida backcountry. Whether you are a hiker, trail runner, off-road bicyclist, or equestrian, this guidebook will help you locate and enjoy wide expanses of pristine nature not far from your own backyard.

I always thought soul music came out of Memphis (Stax Records), Detroit (Motown), and New Orleans. But Florida has a rich soul history that's gone largely unrecognized. My new book tells that surprising story, from Ray Charles’ first recordings in the 1940s, all the way to Miami’s KC & the Sunshine Band's dance classics of the late 70s. The international hit "The Twist" originated in Tampa, and Sam & Dave ("Soul Man") came out of Miami.

I chronicle this soul heritage through interviews with the artists who made this music come alive. I recently adapted one, on singer/songwriter Timmy Thomas, for the musicmagazine Wax Poetics.
