Our Vision

We have a vision at Floating Stage Productions: To revive communities, both culturally and economically, by “bringing the arts to the people.” We want to create an oasis of family-oriented fun and lasting good memories, so important to people living in a troubled world. Our dream is to generate renewed community spirit and goodwill that puts energy and financial support back into communities. Our vision is already a proven success:


1. Concept of “bringing the arts to the people” began in 1998 with a free
             open - air symphony orchestra Pops concert on the rooftop of The Italian
             Fisherman. (This is a popular seasonal restaurant in the Western New
             York resort area of Bemus Bay on Chautauqua Lake)

2. First concert attracted 2,000 people, but it has since become a regional
            attraction, bringing 20,000 visitors

3. In 2003, the floating stage was built, and the entertainment and events
             were expanded to 50 programs per season

4. Concerts and art series are provided free to the public through
            community support, and private and corporate donations

5. The result has been increased economic development for the
            community, including more interest from visitors and local residents,
            brisk real estate sales, existing property upgrades, new business

6. Generous collaboration of business and civic community leaders
            continues to enhance local pride and promote investment
