Festival of the Arts BOCA is also about cultural arts education – introducing new audiences to great music and exposing young people to the great artists in master classes and open rehearsals. The images are remarkable: Sir James and Lady Jeanne Galway leading the best flute students in the region in a master class, Itzhak Perlman "doing a little Q & A" with students, two time Grammy Award nominee Joey Alexander playing two tunes with the Don Estridge High Tech. Middle School Jazz Band and physicist Brian Greene igniting the imaginations of students at West Boca Regional High School and throughout Palm beach County via live streaming.
The Festival continues its commitment to education, offering master classes, school visits, lectures and open rehearsals to over 10,000 area students. In addition, over 1,000 Festival tickets are donated to students and teachers every Festival. We would like to expand our educational efforts into Broward County.
The Festival attracts over 15,000 attendees a year. These attendees live primarily in southern Palm Beach and northern Broward counties. The Festival's economic impact on South Florida is over 1.3 million dollars.

Abojut animals , as presented via large screen multimedia format, the brothers Martin and Chris pull on their Creature Power vest and gloves begin activating Creature Powers! They show off the amazing abilities of animals such as Rhino powers and Caracal Powers! – live on stage – in comical demonstrations. Then Wild Kratts receive a message from Koki, Jimmy and Aviva that Zach and his Zachbots are invading the Tortuga. This villain steals one of the Wild Kratts favorite inventions.
The brothers have got to get it back. Now with amazing animal abilities they are off to confront the bumbling and comical villain, Zach, and his robots.

But the brothers press on and ultimately rescue their favorite invention from Zach's clutches so the animals of the creature world are safe once again. Experience, live-on-stage, the astounding "creature" fundamentals, and the infectious excitement and inspiring quest of the Kratt Brothers that make the hit television series Wild Kratts so popular with kids and their families.

You can capsulize most pop music acts by reciting how many hits they've had and how many millions of albums they've sold. But these conventional measurements fall short when you're assessing the impact of The Beach Boys. This band has birthed a torrent of hit singles and sold albums by the tens of millions. But its greater significance lies in the fact that it changed the musical landscape so profoundly that every pop act since has been in its debt.
The Beach Boys are led by Mike Love and Bruce Johnston, who along with Jeffrey Foskett, Brian Eichenburger, Tim Bonhomme, John Cowsill and Scott Totten continue the legacy of the iconic American band. Grammy-winning songwriter Bruce Johnston, joined The Beach Boys in 1965, replacing Glenn Campbell, who filled-in for Brian Wilson, on vocals/bass, when he retired from touring. Highly regarded in his field, Johnston's vocal work with such legendary artists as Elton John and Pink Floyd firmly established him among rock's elite artists.
