Music and Performing Arts Students Welcome Airport Holiday Travelers

Wednesday, December 02, 2015
Holiday travelers and visitors to the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport will enjoy the sights and sounds of the annual Winter Festival of Music performed by over 1,400 Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) music and performing arts students. The festival, now in its 28th year, takes place Monday, December 7 through Friday, December 11, 2015. Performances are scheduled each day from 9 a.m. – noon.

Choirs, bands, ensembles and dancers from 30 elementary, middle and high schools will make holiday traveling more enjoyable for passengers during this busy holiday season. Students will perform throughout airport terminals in the baggage claim, ticket counter and rental car lobby areas.

We’re very proud of our longstanding partnership with the Broward County Aviation Department and the opportunity this annual event provides for our talented students and travelers alike,” said Joseph Luechauer, BCPS music and performing arts supervisor. “Passengers often join our students in singing and dancing, and even a few lucky ones are given the baton to become guest conductor.”
