Live Music at Penguin Point

OUR MISSION

 

Our mission is to provide a free shared space for celebrating local Central Florida musicians and entertainers from a variety of experience levels and specializations. Past shows have featured soloists, instrumentalists, full bands, circus acts, stand-up comedians, poets, spoken word artists, rappers, storytellers, line dancing, sing-alongs for children, church youth ministry performances, a shadow puppet crew, chamber orchestras, recitals, karaoke nights, open mic nights, recording sessions, podcasting with an audience —and we are open to broadening the definition of what a local live music show can be! Our artists have included students doing their first shows, senior citizens showcasing a lifetime of musical creation, Instagram-famous pop artists, and local and traveling troubadours from a wide variety of backgrounds.
