Organizers of the 6th Annual Festival of the Arts BOCA, set for March 7th – 18th, 2012 presented by the Schmidt Family Centre for the Arts’ at the Count de Hoernle Amphitheater & Mizner Park Cultural Arts Center in Boca Raton, have announced a sensational line-up, bringing “Star After Star” to South Florida.

On Thursday, March 15th, the Festival and Larry Rosen’s Jazz Roots Series team up once more to present An Evening of Gershwin featuring Patti Austin and Tony DeSare. Boca Raton will welcome Grammy award-winning singer Austin and Billboard chart-topping vocalist DeSare who will bring their renditions of the legendary Gershwin songbook.

For more than three decades as both a leader and a sideman, conguero Poncho Sanchez has stirred up a fiery stew of straight-ahead jazz, gritty soul music, and infectious melodies and rhythms from a variety of Latin American and South American sources. He will bring his high energy performance along with his band to Boca Raton on Friday, March 16th. Get ready to dance in the aisles!

In its sixth year, Festival of the Arts BOCA is an extraordinary, multi-day cultural arts event for South Florida. The Festival brings to its audiences the world’s most sought after jazz and classical performers while simultaneously cultivating the stars of tomorrow. IMG Artists, a leader in worldwide cultural arts management and producer of three world renowned festivals: Tuscan Sun Festival, a late summertime festival in Cortona, Italy; Festival del Sole Napa, a mid-July festival in Napa Valley, California; and the Singapore Sun Festival in the fall, is once again collaborating with the Schmidt Family Centre for the Arts at Mizner Park in the planning and execution of Festival of the Arts BOCA 2012.
