Timucua, The White House, is a haven for the local intelligentsia and was designed and built as both home and concert venue by Benoit Glazer and his wife, Elaine Corriveau. If the exterior is plain, the interior more than makes up for that, with stained glass, Brazilian granite floors, brick and wood walls, and an art gallery that changes from week to week. Everything, even the African masks on the back wall and balconies, has been placed for acoustic effect. As music director for Cirque du Soleil’s La Nouba, Glazer wouldn’t have it any other way.

“I am interested in relationships, patriotism and perception. My personal attraction for historical tradition guides my investigations. The work explores the shift in national pride that has occurred over the last 50 years, my experience of being an American, and how it differs from other people’s experiences.” - Dom DiPaolo
