Feels Like Rain, Flying Horse Big Band

For centuries, love has been a central theme for musicians. Join UCF’s chart-topping Flying Horse big band as it surveys music of the amorous nature...love lost, and love found – American style! Tales of the rebuffed and adorned are not relegated solely to Italian opera. From swing to blues and rhythm and blues join Orlando’s friendly neighborhood big band, directed by Jeff Rupert, on the roller coaster of love. Joining the band will be special guests Rob Paparozzi, DaVonda Simmons and Jeff “T-Bone” Gerard.


One of Central Florida’s favorite new traditions celebrates ten years! UCF Celebrates the Arts is an immersive and dynamic cultural extravaganza that fuses creativity, innovation and community engagement. This annual festival showcases the artistic prowess of UCF’s faculty and students and invites the broader community to enjoy performances, exhibitions, presentations and interactive experiences.
