We're looking for a few good volunteers.

As the upcoming season for The Emerson Center rolls out, the time has come again to line up the volunteers who make our productions possible. Want to get involved, meets interesting people, and see exciting shows? Start by sending us an email, calling our office at 772.778.5249, or signing up online below.

Our four-events Celebrated Speakers Series features top speakers addressing hot topics.

Seven Humanities programs address topics relating to Florida and its culture, arts, history, and more.

Expect 8-10 live concerts celebrating some of the top performers of the last century.

A few good volunteers will make the season more rewarding for everyone. Join us!




In 2017, exciting changes are coming for our Celebrated Speakers Series.

In fact, as the Celebrated Speakers Series becomes CSpeak, we felt these changes deserve a whole new website. So, click here to visit and learn more about CSpeak2017.
