An international group of renowned classical musicians from the English Chamber Orchestra, the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra will gather to perform a series of three intimate concerts for Surfside visitors and residents this holiday season.
Named after the founder’s late father, who was a part-time Surfside resident and music lover, The Glenn Douglas Winter Chamber Music Festival will run from Saturday, December 29, 2018, to Wednesday, January 2, 2019, and will feature uniquely themed concerts with pieces ranging from Mozart and Beethoven to Schulhoff and Britten.

“Although my father was not a musician, he was passionate about music, as well as his second home here in South Florida,” said event founder and violinist Shana Douglas. “It is in an honor to pay tribute to his legacy by bringing world-class musicians to Surfside. I know that he will be with us in spirit as we celebrate the joys of life and music this holiday season.”

Douglas will be joined by violinist Winona Fifield, violist Jessica Chang, cellist Adam Satinsky and soprano Shir Rozzen. The three-concert series will kick off with “Let us Serenade You” on Saturday, December 29, at 7:30 p.m. at the Ritz-Carlton Bal Harbour and conclude with “Fantasies and Remembrances” at the same venue on Wednesday, January 2, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $40 per person for each event, including a complimentary glass of champagne.

The tea-time matinee, “A Gypsy New Year’s Eve,” will be held on Monday, December 31, at 2:30 p.m. at the Four Seasons Hotel at The Surf Club. Tickets are $30 per person and include tea or coffee.

To make it a “staycation” holiday, concertgoers can choose from Surfside’s luxurious hotels: the Four Seasons Hotel at The Surf Club, Grand Beach Hotel Surfside or Residence Inn by Marriott Miami Beach Surfside.
