The Soul of a Women: Concert Series
8 p.m.
THE SOUL OF A WOMAN” is guaranteed to be a night for all ladies to laugh, relate, relax, kick off their shoes, and sing along.

This one of a kind musical was crafted, written & produced by Orlando Eye On Talent, Inc. One afternoon after a business meeting with several multicultural women from various walks of life, there was an immediate sense that each was multi-tasking, gulping down cold glasses of water to dash to the next obligation calling. At that moment, one woman suggested, “slow down & exhale”. Those words seemed to resonate as foreign as a language never learned. But those words were ultimately the threaded quilt that began to unveil the incredible life stories of triumph & trials. Truths were exposed, traditional ideas confided and a burst of trust revealed what has hindered most women from coming together. These conversations transformed into intense monologues intertwined through most recognizable songs which gave way to an oasis of exhale.
Location: Valencia College Performing Arts Center – East Campus, 701 North Econlockhatchee Trail, Orlando, FL 32825
