Pompano Beach Arts Puts the Soul Back in Sundays
Concert series goes virtual and new virtual exhibitions, events, conversations and classes debut.
The Pompano Beach Cultural Affairs Department has brought back their beloved concert series, Soulful Sundays in a free virtual format. The next concert from the Ali Cultural Arts Center will feature the Remix Band and premieres on September 13 at 7 pm, on the City of Pompano Beach’s Facebook page. See their new Facebook page here.
This multi-talented band has a unique ability to take crossover hits by world-famous artists and make them sound as fresh as the first time you heard them. Get ready to feel the soulful vocals from three powerhouse singers including Laura Vivas who was featured on NBC’s The Voice, backed by an impressive lineup of musicians. This is the latest in an expansive array of free programming being offered on the website.
“We are posting new videos weekly,” said Phyllis Korab, Cultural Affairs Department Director. “Our regular programming has all gone virtual, and we are delighted to be introducing new audiences to our exhibitions and featured artists, while also providing conversations and classes about a wide array of topics.”
