CULTURE, MUSIC, DANCE, THEATRE AND SO MUCH MORE . . .
The NFCC Artist Series presented its first program in 1959. Since that
time it has continued to grow and bring excellent performing arts and
arts education events to the community. Performances range from
classical to contemporary and over the years, thousands have enjoyed
shows as varied as classical concerts, big band sounds, ballet, jazz and
blues, country and rock tributes, children’s theater events, and more.
Performances are held at Van H. Priest Auditorium, located on the NFCC
campus in Madison, Fla.

“Irish Music at its Best” - Danny Matheson, Celtic Music Radio
Caladh Nua is a tightly-knit, vibrant band with its origins deeply
rooted in the Southern counties of Ireland. Comprised of five versatile
musicians and singers playing a wide selection of instruments – from
fiddle to banjo, guitar to bodhran and tin whistle to button accordion –
the band has captured the essential qualities of traditional Irish
music and balanced them finely with an innovative contemporary flair.
Their NFCC appearance is one of only three shows in Florida during Caladh Nua’s U.S. tour.
