Valentine Concert a Success

On Feb. 11, the Magic City Philharmonic Pops Orchestra performed at the Lauderhill Sports Park, to rave reviews. The orchestra, with 37 members (many formerly of the Florida philharmonic Orchestra) and 2 vocalists, performed for 1 1/2 hours to the delight of the audience. Not only were the Classical pieces performed, but also Big Band, and Broadway tunes.

The event was presented by County Line Chiropractic, Dr. Jensen, located in Lauderhill at the SuperTarget. This was the first for Lauderhill in providing a new type of cultural event to its residents.

With such a strong interest in this type of event, Mayor Richard Kaplan already working on future concerts of this type. It is hoped that the city will be able to provide 2 such concerts per year. The concert for Valentines, and another for the holidays. More information will follow as the event is created.
