Orchestra Miami performs “Masonic Mozart” at Miami’s Historic Scottish Rite Temple
The first in Orchestra Miami’s Discover Miami Through Music Series

Miami’s Scottish Rite Temple: You’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, here’s your opportunity with Orchestra Miami’s inaugural concert of the Discover Miami Through Music series, a series of concerts in Miami’s most interesting and historic landmarks.

The inaugural concert, entitled “Masonic Mozart” 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 Miami’s principal clarinetist Richard Hancock in Mozart’s Concerto for Clarinet, K. 622 and special guest Dr. Tony Boutté as the tenor soloist in Die Mauerfreude, a cantata for tenor and orchestra. The concert opens with the gorgeous Overture to Die Zauberflöte (the “Masonic”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, Miami’s acclaimed historian Dr. Paul George will talk about the Scottish Rite building and the historic Lummus Park neighborhood.
