In these days of Facebook, YouTube, and television on demand, the opera, ballet, and symphony are all struggling to fill concert halls. So the Knight Foundation stepped in to bring classical arts to the masses. They decided to fund 1000 classical performances in unexpected places over three years. But they surpassed that goal in just two years. Artburstmiami.com’s Celeste Fraser Delgado was there for the foundations’s final Random Act of Culture in Miami-Dade County. FIRST AIRED ON WLRN-MIAMI HERALD NEWS RADIO ON SEPTEMBER 7, 2012.
