Gulf Coast Symphony to Present SNOWBIRD FOLLIES A HOLIDAY MUSICAL in December

The Gulf Coast Symphony will present "Snowbird Follies A Holiday Musical" at the Music & Arts Community Center in Fort Myers from December 3 - 18, 2022.

Nomads from the North have been flocking to the sunshine state for well over 100 years. Come enjoy a whimsical musical yuletide celebration with a winking nod to Fort Myers' original snowbirds, Thomas Edison and Henry Ford. From "Boogie Woogie Santa Claus" to "White Christmas", this revue is a playful journey through decades of holiday favorites, sprinkled with local history. This brand new musical review has been conceived and created by renowned Director and Writer DJ Salisbury and our own Maestro Andrew Kurtz, with arrangements created by Julie Carver. This feel good musical will bring a smile to your face and have you swaying in your seat as we get into the Holiday mood.
