Ten years ago, the Winter Park Institute established an atmosphere of enlightenment that captures the synergy created when scholars and thought leaders share information and debate issues. Ever since, the momentum has surged.

From seminars and lectures to performances and exhibits, the Winter Park Institute has drawn talent like Ken Burns, Dr. Jane Goodall, and Itzhak Perlman to the community. 

“Over the past decade, Winter Park Institute at Rollins College has significantly contributed to the vibrant intellectual and artistic offerings on campus and in the community, and it is appropriate that we highlight this in a celebratory way,” says executive director Gail Sinclair.

“The 10th anniversary concert in Central Park is our gift of thanks to the College for its ongoing support and to the community for its steady interest and attendance,” says Sinclair. “We look forward to the next decade and the value we can bring to students’ education and to solidifying the Rollins connection to the community.”

The event takes place during the Winter Park Arts & Culture Weekend of the Arts, February 16-19.
