The 2007 Florida International Festival
The 2007 Florida International Festival will be taking place this year at Daytona Beach from the 13th of July through to the 28th of the same month. And unlike other music festivals the Florida International differs in that this time it is the London Symphony Orchestra from England and a variety of world-renowned conductors, performers and other musicians that will be rocking the stage for two weeks. The show promises to be better than ever before, with the London Symphony Orchestra celebrating its 100th year anniversary this year.
The audience will be exposed to various genres of concert music through a number of concerts that will take place during the two weeks. You will be able to enjoy seven concerts, one concert for the family, one called popular Pops and five separate classical concerts, all of which will feature the London Symphony Orchestra. The International Festival held in Florida takes place at a number of venues situated in the vicinity of Daytona Beach.
