Timucua is a fantastic place in Orlando to enjoy a variety of artistic performances such as jazz, classical music, pop, and more. And it doesn't only present music. In February, a fine cast of actors read the film Field of Dreams.

Last year, we had the opportunity to be there for the Tribute to Luciano Diaz, a beloved composer and musician from Colombia. Dicapta and ASL Services provided the accessibility for the concert. We offered captions for the video portions of the performance, and ASL services brought ASL interpreters for the deaf, hard of hearing and deaf-blind that attended the event.

We celebrate that Timucua is providing ASL for the new series and also creating a space for the deaf and hard of hearing audience to socialize previous to the concerts. This continues to confirm what a special place Timucua is.
