HAPCO Music Foundation

We promote local talent through HAPCO LIVE, connecting program alumni and partners with community venues and civic events for public performance. Our musicians are available in Orlando, Tampa and Jacksonville, Florida; Dallas, Texas; and Atlanta, Georgia. This partnership gives our youth musicians valuable performance experience alongside great community connections.

Many of our entertainers are alumni of HAPCO programs, and continue to perform together in various ensembles. Let us know what style of music you would like, particular instruments (sax, trombone, guitar, piano, bass, drums, etc.) and/or number of performers, and we will coordinate an ensemble perfect for your event!

Booking fees include musician performance and travel.
