Classical South Florida is deeply saddened by the passing of South Florida philanthropist, R. Kirk Landon. His dedication to – and passion for – the arts in South Florida has been a constant source of support and inspiration for CSF, and his decades long work for the Miami City Ballet helped shape that organization into the thriving institution it is today. Our community has lost one of its pillars, and we extend our sincerest condolences to his family.
