Things to do in Orlando, June 22-28: The Masked Singer Live!, Hot in the City Makers Market, Florida Music Conference | Things to Do | Orlando

Our selections of the best stuff to do this week.

Friday-Saturday, June 24-25
Florida Music Conference
The Florida Music Festival had an unmatched 18-year run as Orlando’s flagship music festival and conference. Then, after its 2018 edition, the major event just up and French-exited. But now it’s coming back. Sort of. Although the same FMF minds are behind it, this is the inaugural Florida Music Conference. As the name indicates, this music industry gathering will lean more on the conference aspect. Also noteworthy is FMC’s distinctly local angle; the keynote conversations will feature natives who’ve enjoyed breakout success. And FMC will still have a concert component with two stages of live showcases. Ace Cafe, 100 W. Livingston St.,, $10-$25.

Saturday, June 25
Nothing True Over the Moon

Orlando’s ultimate outsider-musician, Danny Feedback, is finally done with his feature-length film Nothing True Over the Moon and he’s ready for you to behold his cinematic opus. The bulk of Nothing True was filmed tour-style in 2020 with Feedback, director Evan J. Shafran and various collaborators (musical and otherwise) traveling to different cities to shoot. But this is not a tour film, nor does it focus on Feedback’s musical endeavors. What we’ve seen of Shafran and Feedback’s film is gritty and noiry, pitched between the Coen brothers and David Lynch. 8 p.m., Aloma Cinema Grill, 2155 Aloma Ave., Winter Park,, $10 suggested donation.

Saturday-Sunday, June 25-26
‘Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix’ in Concert
This concert at the Walt Disney Theater is a part of the “Harry Potter Film Concert Series,” in which audiences experience the movies with a live symphony orchestra providing the soundtrack. While the movie plays in HD on the big screen, the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra will perform Nicholas Hooper’s unforgettable score. This is a rescheduled date from last year. Walt Disney Theater, Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, 445 S. Magnolia Ave.,, $45.50-$75.50.

Sunday, June 26
Hot in the City Makers Market
This new local artisans’ showcase in the Milk District is coming in hot — pardon the godawful pun — with a host of local artists, creatives and vendors showing off the fruits of their labors and talents. Records, coffee, paintings, ceramics, prints, foodstuffs, spirits and clothing will all be available for browsing and purchasing out in front of Alchemy. Also, there will be performances courtesy of Greyson Charnock of Someday River and busy man-about-town Kurt Rambus. Let’s keep our money local. 10 a.m., Alchemy Hair Salon, 600 N. Bumby Ave.,, free.

Tuesday, June 28
The Masked Singer: Live!
Originally scheduled for way back in 2020, this touring version of the Fox reality television series and singing competition is well and truly underway. This is a traveling version of the show, in which celebrities in costume conceal their identities from other contestants, panelists and the audience before eventually being unmasked — to great surprise all around. The night will be hosted by Natasha Bedingfield and though surprise celeb guests are promised, that will presumably not include recent masked cause célèbre Rudy Giuliani. 7:30 p.m., Walt Disney Theater, Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, 445 S. Magnolia Ave.,, $39.75-$510.
