As a celebration of the cultural diversity of the city and the musical richness that exists around the world, South Florida Friends of Classical Music presents the 3rd Edition of the Miami Music Festival from Around the World.

The South Florida Friends of Classical Music, announces the third edition of “Miami Music Festival from Around the World” (formerly known as Miami World Music Festival) which will take place from October, 24 to 26, in the Wertheim Center for the Performing Arts of the Florida International University (FIU).

The 2014 Festival, under its new name, will embark on an international sonic adventure. Four shows in which music lovers will come together to enjoy a wide scope of musical expressions ranging from well-known opera arias to the vibrant African rhythms and explosive piano duels.

This year the festival, under the artistic direction of Dr. Adolfo Vidal, has brought together both musicians of great experience and international recognition as new talents.

Opening the Festival, two virtuoso pianists Michael Linville and Adolfo Vidal, joined by percussionists of the New World Symphony, will perform Sonata for two Pianos and Percussion by the great Hungarian composer Béla Bartók and contagious avant-garde tangos by Argentina’s Astor Piazzolla.

On Saturday, after a sold-out at the last festival Venus Rising returns with a new show: “One Pulse, Many Beats” a mixture of dance, rhythms and sounds from Africa, the Caribbean, Brazil and the Middle East.

On Sunday a double round of concerts begins with a spectacular journey through the world of opera. “Women in Opera” features five sopranos and mezzo-sopranos singing ravishing duos, trios, recognized arias.

The festival closes with the “Monster Piano Explosion,” a marathon of solos, four-hand throw-downs, two pianos duels and other surprises that will blow your senses, with 20 accomplished pianists from the South of Florida.

All proceeds from the Miami World Music Festival will be benefit educational programs for young by South Florida Friends of Classical Music. The Festival is funded in part with the support of the Department of Cultural Affairs of Miami – Dade and the Cultural Affairs Council, the Mayor of Miami – Dade County and the County Board of Commissioners. Sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture.

They are back in Miami for the third time to present their annual concert par excellence! The Living Earth Show will be presenting premiere performances of New York composer Jacob Cooper’s Pasturing (Reprise) and Philadelphian Jonathan Pfeffer’s The Bell, The Ball, The Bow-tie, and the Boot, two pieces that were written for the ensemble’s 2015 collaborative production with Post:Ballet. These works utilize electric guitar, percussion, samples, and other electronic sounds to create woks that dialogue with the classical tradition and contemporary culture in equal measure.

Called “a vanguard effort of new chamber music” and “energetically provocative” by The San Francisco Examiner, “a much sought-after presence on the indie classical scene” by The San Francisco Classical Voice, and “a fully distorted perpetual motion of awesome” by I Care If You Listen, The Living Earth Show – electric guitarist Travis Andrews and percussionist Andy Meyerson – has developed a reputation as one of the most versatile and virtuosic contemporary chamber groups on the west coast. Memorizing every work it performs, The Living Earth Show thrives on pushing the boundaries of technical and artistic possibility in its presentation of commissioned electro-acoustic chamber music.

Opening the 2014-15 season of the South Motors Jazz Series, Pinecrest Gardens, October 18 at 8 PM

The FIU Big Band, directed by James Hacker, is the most visible artistic group at FIU. With over 25 major performances yearly it has become internationally recognized as one of the premier college jazz ensembles in the world. Invitations to the International Association for Jazz Education Convention, the Mid-West Band & Orchestra Clinic, the Wigan Jazz Festival, the North Sea Jazz Festival, the Quito Jazz Festival, and the Maceo Jazz Festival have taken this world-class group of graduate & undergraduate students beyond the realm of the ‘typical’ college band. “This big band sports an explosive sound and fluid mode of attack. They abide by a get up and go style of musicality via brisk charts and precision-oriented interplay. In effect, the album title offers a vivid depiction of the band’s multihued gait, where they tear it up and also temper the various pulses in spots.” (Glenn Astarita)

Wendy Pedersen is one of South Florida’s favorite performers. Her high-energy vocal delivery, with deep, convincing emotion has been impacting audiences for many years. Wendy has won many awards including the Southern Bell/Pace “Jazz Artist of the Year” and a Miami New Times “best vocalist”, saying, “Wendy can shake the rafters or break your heart…” “When she sings, her voice, an elegant melismatic instrument, evokes the standard emotions, yes, but deeper longings and muted desires.”
(Leonard Pitts, Miami Herald)

Pinecrest Gardens is located at 11000 SW 57th Ave (Red Rd.) Tickets are $25-$30 at pinecrestgardens.org or 305-669-6990.

The Miami Classical Guitar Society is extremely excited to be launching our highly anticipated 27th Season, starting October 18, with Guitar Foundation of America’s First Prize Winner, Russian guitarist Anton Baranov!

A rising talent, Baranov has joined the prize-winning circles at 15 international guitar competitions, with his latest First Prize win at the prestigious 2013 GFA International Competition as well as First Prize at the 2013 the Francisco Tárrega Competition – and at age 30, he’s only getting started. Baranov splits his time between teaching at his alma mater, the St. Petersburg Conservatory, and is now embarking on a 50-city tour of the U.S., Mexico, Canada, and Brazil, including his debut at New York’s Carnegie Hall later this month.

“Baranov is one of those rare guitarists who are able to have their attendees almost forget the instrument they play, managing to have them focus on the expressivity of the music.” Roland Dyens, guitarist-composer

Concert: Saturday, October 18 – 8PM
Location: Saint Bede Episcopal Chapel, 1150 Stanford Drive, Coral Gables, Florida 33146 / Parking Free
Tickets: $30
