Orchestra Miami performs â€œMasonic Mozartâ€ at Miamiâ€™s Historic Scottish Rite Temple
The first in Orchestra Miamiâ€™s Discover Miami Through Music Series
Miamiâ€™s Scottish Rite Temple: Youâ€™ve driven by it a million times passing through downtown, marveled at its lovely & exotic Art Deco exterior, but have you actually been inside? Finally, hereâ€™s your opportunity with Orchestra Miamiâ€™s inaugural concert of the Discover Miami Through Music series, a series of concerts in Miamiâ€™s most interesting and historic landmarks.
The inaugural concert, entitled â€œMasonic Mozartâ€ is an all-Mozart concert inside Miami’s iconic Scottish Rite Temple. One of history’s most celebrated Masons, Mozart wrote numerous pieces for Masonic Ritual, for his Masonic brothers or based on Masonic symbols. “Masonic Mozart” is your opportunity to hear some of this great music performed in the setting for which it was intended.
The program features Orchestra Miamiâ€™s principal clarinetist Richard Hancock in Mozartâ€™s Concerto for Clarinet, K. 622 and special guest Dr. Tony BouttÃ© as the tenor soloist in Die Mauerfreude, a cantata for tenor and orchestra. The concert opens with the gorgeous Overture to Die ZauberflÃ¶te (the â€œMasonicâ€opera) and closes with Mozart’s greatest symphonic achievement, the “Jupiter” Symphony N. 41, K. 551 in C Major. The 39 musicians from Orchestra Miami will be led by Artistic Director Elaine Rinaldi. Following the concert, Miamiâ€™s acclaimed historian Dr. Paul George will talk about the Scottish Rite building and the historic Lummus Park neighborhood.Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
