In an unprecedented collaborative effort, Miami’s leading performing arts organizations – the Adrienne Arsht Center, Florida Grand Opera, Miami City Ballet and New World Symphony, America’s Orchestral Academy – have joined forces to host an overnight luxury cruise aboard the Seabourn Odyssey on November 13 and 14. Through the generous support of The Yachts of Seabourn and the Carnival Corporation, the proceeds from the event will be shared equally among each of the four organizations, offering each organization an opportunity to raise significant funds while minimizing risk, a strategy that has become essential in the current economy.
“Arts Odyssey: A Collaboration will afford individual patrons and corporate sponsors a once-in-a-lifetime chance to support four organizations critical to the fabric of our community,” said Adrienne Arsht, event co-chair and chairman of the Adrienne Arsht Center Foundation Board.
Funds raised will support artistic programming, education and community outreach, apprenticeship and fellowship programs, and the continued enrichment of South Florida’s leading performing arts institutions
“We are an ensemble of four Miami arts institutions serving as ambassadors for our city. This collaboration is a national model of how the performing arts community can maximize its fundraising potential through cultivated teamwork,” said M. John Richard, president and CEO of the Adrienne Arsht Center.
The cruise will depart at 5:00 pm on Friday from Port Everglades, voyage into international waters, and return by 9:00 am Saturday morning. The event’s 400 attendees – a veritable who’s who of South Florida’s top arts enthusiasts, philanthropists, and business leaders – will enjoy dinner and dancing, as well as a spectacular performance by Bernadette Peters.
