2017 Accidental Music Fest



What is Accidental Music Fest?

Accidental Music Festival’s Marathon AMF celebrates the emergence of Orlando as a hotbed of contemporary classical and creative music. Featuring a dozen ensembles performing a day long concert of music almost exclusively by living composers, the event seeks to highlight the work of new and established groups dedicated to new music.

Each group will perform roughly twenty to twenty five minutes of music. Between sets there will be interviews with the artists and other contributors to Orlando’s contemporary classical scene, including concert presenters, radio and podcast hosts, and writers. The short sets and casual atmosphere will allow for people to meet, share, and learn about new projects and upcoming concerts. Stay for the whole day or just a couple of performances.

This year there will also be family-friendly events during the day, including acoustic and electronic instrument petting zoos, where kids of all ages can test out instruments and learn about making electronic music.

The event is hosted in SoDo District at the Sodo Shopping Center, located at 80 W. Grant Street, Suite 11, Orlando, FL 32806, in the space beside T.J. Maxx.  Accidental Music Fest will be held on May 20, 2017, 1 – 10 pm.

This is an excellent opportunity to get your company’s name in front of both the Orlando music scene and SoDo District businesses and residents.  Sponsorship of this event will give your company exposure in a multitude of different ways, depending on your investment value.

This year, Timucua Arts Foundation and SoDo District are teaming up to bring you this dynamic, unique event.  Beyond live music and interactive activities, there will be beer and wine provided by local SoDo District vendors, as well as a VIP area and visual art installations.  Please contact director@sododistrict.org with sponsorship inquiries.

SoDo District + Timucua Art Foundation

A SoDo District and Timucua Arts Foundation was a natural fit.  The partnership began in 2016 in the creation of a program called SoDo Sunday, promoting both the free Sunday concerts and visiting SoDo District businesses before the show.  It seemed obvious to partner again for Accidental Music Fest in an effort to bring a dynamic, unique, cultural event to the SoDo District.
