Summertime in Bal Harbour will be melodic.
In an effort to highlight local arts and culture, the village has teamed up with The Rhythm Foundation, a nonprofit cultural organization, for a series of Sunday musical performances.
Through Sept. 5, a weekly roster of music programming created by the organization will be featured from noon to 3 p.m. at the ONE Bal Harbour Resort & Spa and Bal Harbour Shops.
All events are free.
“This has been a successful series that brings wonderful free concerts to the public and allows us the pleasure to work with locally-based artists,” said Laura Quinlan, director of Rhythm Foundation. “Bal Harbour has a great tradition of being a home for the arts and culture, and we are really glad to have the opportunity to work together.”
At Bal Harbour Shops, 9700 Collins Ave., the series takes place on the mall’s terrace and will focus on international instrumental music, including Indian sitar and Argentine tango music. At ONE Bal Harbour, 10295 Collins Ave., the program will take on Brazilian flair with a Bossa Brunch at ONE Kitchen.
The village allocated $22,500 to supplement the program using village resorts tax funds to pay for the entertainment, which started May 30.
