Like 5th Avenue in New York City or Rodeo Drive in Los Angeles, Brickell Avenue in Miami has quickly become synonymous with world-class elegance as has the music of Ludwig van Beethoven. The Beethoven Society of Miami-Dade, a not for profit organization, presents as the Opening Concert for the â€œSecond Annual Classical Virtuosi Festival of Miamiâ€ the Third Annual â€œ609… 6/09… 6:09… it’s Beethovenâ€™s time to shine”.
The All-Beethoven on Brickell classical music concert, free and open to the public, features young artists accompanied by the â€œClassical Virtuosi Festival of Miamiâ€ full orchestra conducted by Maestro Alfred Gershfeld. The concert will take place in the First Presbyterian Church of Miami at 609 Brickell Avenue, on Tuesday, June 9th, at 6:09 p.m.
Artistic Director Professor Thomas Moore designed this All-Beethoven Concert specifically for the businesses and neighborhoods in the Brickell area, but it is open to the whole city of Miami.
The concert is co-sponsored by the Beethoven Society of Miami-Dade, the New World School of the Arts, Thomas Moore Violins, Inc., the First Presbyterian Church of Miami, the Brickell Area Association, the Brickell Homeowners Association, and the Brickell community as a whole. Saluting the arrival of the “PUBLIX/Mary Brickell Village”, Mr. Ken Martin, a well know classical music radio-personality will act as the Master of Ceremony. Thanks to the BEETHOVEN Society the concert will be video recorded for a later public television production.
The Concert will pay a Loving Memory Tribute honoring Maestro Reginald Nicholson (1946-2009) who, as the Artistic Director of the Alhambra Orchestra, was responsible for the success of the first two 609â€¦ 6/09â€¦ 6:09â€¦ concerts.
Opening at 6:09 p.m., Mr. David Brodie, church master organist, will play Beethoven selections.
â€œThis is Beethovenâ€™s time to shine and a wonderful place for those who live and work in and around Brickell Avenue to meet and mingle while listening to beautiful music,â€ says Gustavo Alfredo â€œGusâ€ Noguera, Founder & Executive Director of the Beethoven Society of Miami-Dade. â€œIn past years, the concert had its biggest audience – almost 800 people filled the church. We hope for the same turnout this year,â€ states Noguera.
