Music for Missions, a unique community event featuring local musicians, takes place Friday, May 10, at Destiny Worship Center, 122 Poinciana Blvd. in Miramar Beach. The evening kicks off at 6:30 p.m. with a silent auction and the concert begins at 7 p.m. Desserts can be enjoyed during intermission and the silent auction will close before the second half of the concert.


On a mission to raise funds to help support an orphanage, 16-year-old Brandon Crowther of Miramar Beach created a ministry for that purpose.

"I began Music for Missions to help with my church's youth group mission trip to Guatemala, and to assist the orphanage that the mission trip benefits," Crowther told The Log. "I was not able to go on the trip, but I still wanted to help in some way. I decided that I could help best with the musical talent that I have been blessed with."

Music for Missions is a student-led organization that assists local youth groups in fundraising efforts for mission trips. The student musicians perform at benefit concerts — “Using their God-Given talents. Blessing Others. Everywhere.”

Crowther is a junior at the Collegiate High School at Northwest Florida State College. He began his musical endeavors at an early age when he joined the school band as an alto saxophonist. He soon discovered that he had a knack for playing music, as well as learning new instruments.

 Over the years, Crowther added tenor saxophone, clarinet, flute, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, and his biggest love, the piano, on which he plays classical music and some pop.
