Updated Communication from Kathleen Sipio, Executive Director of the Celebration Foundation
The Celebration Foundation has been monitoring the global outbreak of COVID-19, the coronavirus through announcements and updates from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization and the Florida Department of Health since our communication on March 12th, 2020. Effective on Sunday, March 15th the CDC recommended that no gatherings with 50 people or more take place for the next eight weeks to slow the coronavirus. In addition, CROA has announced that all indoor and outdoor facility usage has been closed until April 30th.
As a result of the above directives, the Celebration Foundation’s programs and events are modified as follows:
- Thriving In Place – All events in March & April will be cancelled. Our transportation service line will continue to be available to schedule appointments.
- Celebration Lifelong – Session #3 is postponed and will be rescheduled for a later time.
- Concert Series – Balsam Range concert scheduled for March 28th will be postponed and if possible, rescheduled. OPO Duke Ellington concert scheduled for April 17th will also be postponed and rescheduled if possible.
- Signature Event – “Boots, Bowties & Bling” will also be postponed and rescheduled if possible.
We will continue to communicate periodically with updates on rescheduled events. As a result of further CDC guidelines, the Celebration Foundation staff will be working remotely with limited in-office access at this time. We will be available by phone Monday thru Friday from 9am to 5pm. We encourage you to call or email us, stay connected and ask questions.
As we continue to make decisions with the overall concern for the health and safety of our members, staff, instructors and volunteers, know that we are working together to keep our community connected with the Foundation during this time. Our sincere gratitude for your patience, understanding and continued support.

Celebration Foundation’s Concert Series was founded in 2001 with the belief that great communities deserve great music.
The original focus was on featuring Central Florida music organizations and classical music performances. Today, we continue to honor Central Florida talent, as well as invite nationally- and internationally-acclaimed artists to grace our Concert Series. We enjoy jazz, bluegrass, swing, and Americana music, along with classical performances. We often invite local high school music groups to open for these acts to promote arts appreciation among all ages.
“Join friends, family, and neighbors and be carried away with the triumph of enduring music as it can only be heard in the pristine confines of an acoustic gem.” Paul Kinser, Concert Sponsor
To bring the finest quality music to western Osceola County.
We are grateful to Celebration’s Community Presbyterian Church for being the host of our Concert Series. Their sanctuary was designed to enhance sound and many artists have said it is one of their favorite venues in which to perform. The venue, which only seats 420, provides an intimate setting where the audience can connect to the artists who are performing.
