a florence success story


Back in 1980, a group of Florence folks got together to explore ways to bring first-quality,
affordable entertainment to town. Their efforts soon paid off, tickets were sold, and 
3 classical musical groups came to Florence.  A sold-out audience enjoyed those first concerts, which were held in a local school auditorium.  Years of more successful concerts followed.  From the original 3 concerts per year, the season grew to 4, then 6, then to the present 7-concert series.  The audience soon outgrew the seating capacity of the school auditorium, so concerts were held at several other venues around town, until the Florence Events Center (FEC) was built.  
The Florence Performing Arts Association, now known as Seacoast Entertainment Association, presented its first season at the brand new FEC in 1997.

A list of our shows from the previous seasons can be viewed here.
