The South Florida Pride Wind Ensemble’s Youth Pride Band
                           Concert Scheduled for February 26, 2023
Nonprofit to Award Annual Scholarships to High School Band Students

FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA.- (February 1, 2023) South Florida Pride Wind Ensemble’s 12th Annual Youth Pride Band Concert is scheduled for Sunday, February 26 at 7 p.m., at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts’ Amaturo Theater. Tickets are $35 and can be purchased at

The evening’s program includes awarding a series of $1,000 scholarships to South Florida high school band students. In addition to receiving the monetary reward, students will acquire invaluable musical mentorship from an outstanding artistic team along with the opportunity to practice and perform alongside members of the South Florida Pride Wind Ensemble. A signature program of the South Florida Pride Wind Ensemble, the nonprofit has distributed $159,000 in Youth Pride scholarship funds since 2012.

In addition, one talented student will receive a supplemental $5,000 scholarship from the inaugural FLoatarama Youth Pride Band Soloist competition care of the FLoatarama LGBTQ Youth Fund, and will be a featured as a soloist at the Pride Wind Ensemble’s May concert.    

“With more people identifying as LGBTQ earlier in their lives, it is vital that we as a community create a safe space, protect against bullying and celebrate our diversity through the power of music,” said Adam DeRosa, board chair of the South Florida Pride Wind Ensemble.
