Tonight, local arts groups from all over the city unite as one to raise money for the victims of the Pulse massacre for the Beautiful Together show at the Walt Disney Theatre at the Dr. Phillips Center. 

The event is led by Joshua Vickery of Central Florida Community Arts, Cole NeSmith of Creative City Project, Mitzi Maxwell of Mad Cow Theater, Robert Hill of Orlando Ballet and Eric Jacobsen of Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra.

The centerpiece of the event is a legion of local musical talent coming together to form a "mass choir and orchestra," with over 15 ensembles taking park, including the Orlando Gay Chorus, Negro Spiritual Scholarship Foundation, Osceola County Public Schools, Opera Orlando and the New Score Chamber Orchestra. Aside from that, a veritable legion of visual, theatrical, dance and sound artists will be taking part in the evening's program.

The event begins at 8 p.m. Tickets are $15, $25 and $45 and may be purchased here or at the door.
