With the arrival of Labor Day comes the official close of summer. However, just because you may be putting your summer whites away doesn’t mean you can’t still revel in the carefree feeling and delight that comes with exploring all there is to do at The District, along Fort Lauderdale’s picturesque New River — where “summer fun” eternally blooms! This month, you can spend an afternoon doing a Tea and Tour at the NSU Art Museum or an evening at a rock concert singing along with your favorite artists from the '60s, '70s and '80s. Or, perhaps, you want to try something you’ve never done like a Birding Class, in which you can learn to spot and identify different species and bird behavior. This is also the last opportunity to try the Heritage Tour — a most “waterful” way to discover the city and its history — before it wraps up Sept. 30. There is never a lack of things to experience, see, hear or savor at The District. So, what are you waiting for? September is here! Seize the moment and create memories that will last many seasons to come.

Florida Grand Opera’s 75th Season Preview
In celebration of FGO’s 75th continuous year of bringing the finest opera to South Florida, a season has been designed with something for everyone. Each of the operas will resonate with a variety of communities. The season will feature the traditional period productions and begin with an audience favorite, “Carmen” (Dec. 1 & Dec. 3, 2016). Tchaikovsky’s “Eugene Onegin” (Feb. 9 & Feb. 11, 2017), presents a tale of universal human truths, and returns to the Broward Center’s stages after a 17-year absence. Culminating the 2016–2017 season will be Giuseppe Verdi’s “Un ballo in maschera” (“A Masked Ball”) (May 11 & May 13, 2017), the story of a king who is conspired against and, ultimately, betrayed by his most trusted friend. There are two kinds of people: those who love opera and those who don’t yet know they do! Learn more >
There was a full house at NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale’s opening reception for “African Art: Highlights from the Permanent Collection” and “Five Centuries of Prints from Rembrandt to Picasso: Drs. Walter and Mildred Padow Collection.” Both exhibits are on display through Oct. 23.
