Showcasing an international lineup of artists and speakers, Festival of the Arts Boca is a veritable culture bomb of aesthetic enlightenment and artistic edification. A series of musical serenades seduce coquettish eardrums, including the diverse musical stylings of Canadian Brass, the virtuoso guitar melodies of Miloš Karadaglić, and the foot-tapping syncopations of "Piano Latino", featuring Latin Jazz masters Eddie Palmieri, Michel Camilo, and rising star Alfredo Rodriguez. Dance lovers, meanwhile, can vicariously pirouette through the lithe, Latin-flavored movements of the Ballet Hispanico. For more cerebral edutainment, award-winning investigative journalist Seymour Hersh will explore the subject of American foreign policy while weaving in his own personal experiences covering the conflicts in Afghanistan, Iraq, Vietnam, and Middle Earth. Those who scoff at anything less than grand spectacle and habitually set off fireworks during jury duty will revel in the restored print of The Wizard of Oz as it is projected onto the big screen while the Boca Raton Symphonia provides the live musical score. Tickets can be picked up at the box office on the day of each event, which opens two hours before the show.
