Cost: $50 – $170

Experience the electrifying fusion of passion and rhythm as the world-renowned Siudy Garrido Flamenco Company, led by acclaimed dancer and choreographer Siudy Garrido, joins forces, once again, with Maestra Sebrina María Alfonso and South Florida Symphony Orchestra (SFSO) for the return of the critically acclaimed flamenco dance-theater production, Amor Brujo. The one-night-only event occurs on Saturday, June 15, at 8 p.m., at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, Knight Concert Hall.

The star-studded production also features notable screen actor and Broadway star George Akram. Akram gained recognition for his portrayal of Bernardo in the hit Broadway revival of West Side Story from 2008-2011, making history for being in the longest-running Broadway production of West Side Story and winning a GRAMMY for Best Musical Theater album. Also featured is Latin GRAMMY nominee Argentina López, and acclaimed flamenco virtuoso José Manuel Álvarez.

This evocative collaboration brings to life the passionate narrative of Candela, a grieving widow who finds new love amidst the presence of her husband’s ghost. Based on “El Amor Brujo” by Manuel de Falla, Amor Brujo bridges the beauty of flamenco artistry and classical music, setting the stage for a mesmerizing journey.

In 2015, Gustavo Dudamel and the LA Phil commissioned Amor Brujo, which opened to four sold-out performances at Walt Disney Concert Hall. In 2018, a sold-out performance with South Florida Symphony Orchestra occurred at Miami’s Arsht Center.

For the 2024 performances, Siudy Garrido has restaged Amor Brujo and will premiere a new section that features flamenco compositions by José Luis de la Paz, inspired by the lead characters of “El Amor Brujo.” In the new section, Maestro José Luis dela Paz’s arrangements for Spanish guitar explore flamenco styles such as “Seguirilla” and “Guajiras,” adding depth and richness to the performance.
Tickets to Siudy Garrido Flamenco Company and South Florida Symphony Orchestra’s presentation of Amor Brujo at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, Knight Concert Hall (1300 Biscayne Blvd, Miami) start at $50 and are on sale now at arshtcenter.org.

South Florida Symphony Orchestra Presents Tchaikovsky and Bruch 4/18/24

Cost: $36

Become enraptured in the drama of Tchaikovsky and the sprightly Highland-inspired melodies of Bruch as South Florida Symphony Orchestra (SFSO) presents an exuberant April Masterworks finale to a triumphant season! Led by Sebrina María Alfonso, SFSO will perform Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5 in E minor, Op. 64 and Bruch’s Scottish Fantasy in E-flat major, Op. 46 featuring Huifang Chen, SFSO’s associated conductor and concertmaster, on violin, at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 18, at Temple Israel of Greater Miami (137 NE 19th Street).

A sense of deep longing underscores Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s (1840 – 1893) Symphony No. 5. in E minor, Op. 64. Composed in 1888, the work takes audiences on a storied journey inspired by “Fate” – beginning with deep gloomy chords that evolve into musical transitional canter culminating in an exhilarating joyful coda of triumph as we rejoice in the power of the human spirit. Today, during a quite different kind of global struggle, Symphony No. 5 invites us to rebel against despair.

German composer Max Bruch’s (1838 – 1920) spirited Scottish Fantasy in E-flat major, Op. 46 is steeped in the sounds of the Highlands, even though Bruch had not yet visited Scotland when he wrote the acclaimed piece. A four-movement tribute to traditional folk melodies, it opens with notes built upon “Through the Wood Laddie.” This tune also appears at the end of the second and fourth movements. The second movement is built around “The Dusty Miller,” the third on “I’m A’ Doun for Lack O’ Johnnie,” and the fourth movement includes a sprightly arrangement of “Hey Tuttie Tatie,” from the patriotic anthem “Scots Wha Hae” (with lyrics by Robert Burns).

Following its highly acclaimed 25th anniversary season, including sold-out shows and a celebrated performance accompanying award-winning alt-rock indie vocalist Natalie Merchant, South Florida’s largest symphonic orchestra is continuing its musical journey of excellence inspiring audiences of all ages.

In addition to its sold-out season masterworks performances, Maestra Alfonso will be conducting SFSO in an upcoming live performance of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone ™ In Concert on April 5 and 6 and Classical Mystery Tour: A Symphonic Tribute to The Beatles on May 11, both at Broward Center for the Performing Arts (separately ticketed events).

Miami, FL – The second South Florida edition of the Festival of Colors (festivalofcolorsfl.com) is coming to central Miami at Peacock Park in Coconut Grove on Saturday, April 13.

After an inaugural colorful 2023 event attended by hundreds in Ft, Lauderdale, this marks the second local edition of the Festival of Colors USA. It’s been beloved by conscious partiers throughout the western US for nearly two decades (festivalofcolorsusa.com), and billed as “the world’s happiest transformational festival.”

Inspired by the Indian festival of Holi, the Festival of Colors will take place on Saturday, April 13 from 11 am to 4 pm, at Peacock Park, 2820 MacFarlane Rd., Coconut Grove, Miami, 33133.

The day promises to be a vibrant celebration of love, unity, and joy, and sober, uplifting fun, with plenty of cruelty-free cuisine, arts and crafts, mantra music, HOURLY COLOR THROWS — and free entry for kids under 12!

The Festival of Colors, also known as Holi, is a Hindu festival that has been celebrated in India and other parts of the world for centuries. It’s a time when people come together to celebrate the arrival of spring and the victory of good over evil. During the festival, participants throw colorful powder at each other, dance to live music, and enjoy delicious food.

This year’s Festival of Colors in Florida promises to be an unforgettable experience for all attendees. In addition to the colorful powder throwing and live music, there will also be yoga, meditation, and dance workshops throughout the day. There will also be plenty of food vendors, serving up delicious vegetarian and vegan options.

“We’re thrilled to bring the Festival of Colors to South Florida for the first time this year,” said festival organizer, Vasanti Dasi. “We want to create a space where people can come together, have fun, and celebrate the beauty of diversity and unity. This festival is a celebration of life, love, and happiness.”

Tickets for the Festival of Colors are available for purchase on the festival’s website, festivalofcolorsfl.com. Early bird tickets are on sale now, so make sure to grab yours before they sell out. Again, kids under 12 enter free, and there’s a special discount for students and veterans.

Use promo code BHAKTI at checkout to get presale entry for just $5 (with a bag of three colors) or $10 (with a bag of three colors and a vegetarian or vegan meal). Students and veterans can use the code to get presale entry with a bag of colors for $5.

MIAMI – March 26, 2024 – The Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County (@arshtcenter) is proud to present THE FORGOTTEN FOUNDING FATHERS written and produced by hip-hop legend Karl “Dice Raw” Jenkins (@DiceRaw), a frequent collaborator with hip-hop mega group and “The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon” co-stars, The Roots, as part of the Center’s Family Fun Live! Series. THE FORGOTTEN FOUNDING FATHERS will be presented on April 20, 2024 at 3 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. and April 21, 2024 at 3 p.m. inside the Center’s intimate Carnival Studio Theater.

Tickets for THE FORGOTTEN FOUNDING FATHERS are $30* and may be purchased now online at arshtcenter.org, or at the Arsht Center box office by calling (305) 949-6722.

THE FORGOTTEN FOUNDING FATHERS takes the audience on a captivating, theatrical and hip-hop journey that explores American history through the lens of African American, Latino and Indigenous heroes during some of the country’s most pivotal times, including the American Revolutionary War, Civil War and Reconstruction.

The family-friendly show spotlights heroes such as Prince Whipple, Wentworth Cheswell, Colonel Ty Cornelius, Sojourner Truth, Bernardo de Galvez and Phillis Wheatley. Unlike other historical education that highlights the pain and suffering of African Americans, Latino and Indigenous peoples, THE FORGOTTEN FOUNDING FATHERS aims to teach the contributions of these communities to the country.

In addition to the public performances that week, the Arsht Center has arranged for Karl Jenkins and the cast to visit Miami-Dade County public high schools for a series of workshops designed to engage students in a creative exploration of history through songwriting, acting and discussions of historical relevance and philosophy. Through interactive activities and discussions, students will gain a deeper understanding of the historical context and philosophical ideas that shaped the Founding Fathers’ legacy. Student performances at the Arsht Center will take place on April 18-19.

Cost: $25 – $95

Music lovers rejoice! South Florida Symphony Orchestra (SFSO), led by Sebrina María Alfonso, presents an enthralling March Masterworks program that will take audiences on an epic journey through a Russian fairytale to a sensuous Spanish tavern to the streets of 1940s Times Square all the way up to a modern stirring elegy for 9/11. The region’s foremost symphony will premiere two first-time performances of Bernstein’s “Three Dance Episodes” and modern composer Ellen Taaffe Zwilich’s Clarinet Concerto featuring David Shifrin plus popular favorites Stravinsky’s The Firebird Suite and Ravel’s Boléro at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, March 25, at the New World Center in Miami Beach. A pre-concert chat with Dr. Alan Mason illuminating the works and composers will take place 30 minutes prior to the concert.

Russian composer Igor Stravinsky’s (1882 – 1971) The Firebird Suite, based on the Russian fairy tales of the Firebird and the blessing and curse it possesses for its owner, was first performed at the Opéra de Paris in 1910 and was an instant success, catapulting him to international fame. The memorable neo-classical work embodying good and evil has been described as a work of genius.

Maurice Ravel’s (1875 – 1937) Boléro was commissioned by dancer Ida Rubinstein in 1922, and was a raving success when it premiered at the Paris Opera in 1928, Instantly recognizable, the popular, Spanish-influenced rhythmic earworm remains one of the most romantic and well-known classical pieces in his canon.

Leonard Bernstein (1918 – 1990), America’s famed composer and conductor, takes his concert suite “Three Dance Episodes” from the hit musical On the Town, a wartime romantic comedy about three sailors with 24 hours’ shore leave in New York City. Composed in 1944, this popular, jazzy piece was Bernstein’s first composition for Broadway. This work is a South Florida Symphony premiere.

Another South Florida Symphony premiere is Pompano Beach-based Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Ellen Taaffe Zwilich’s Clarinet Concerto featuring the equally award-winning talents of clarinetist David Shifrin (original performer of the piece). Zwilich had already begun her Concerto for Clarinet (commissioned by the Arlene and Milton D. Berkman Philanthropic Fund) by the time the 9/11 World Trade Center attacks occurred. In his review of the 2003 world premiere performance of the piece in 2003, Peter G. Davis of New York Magazine observed: “Like everyone else, composers were badly shaken by 9/11, and their musical responses are beginning to be heard. (This work) would surely have turned out to be quite a different piece had not the fatal date arrived just as she was about to start work on the second movement. That inevitably became an elegy, and the subsequent two movements grew from there.”

Winner of the coveted Avery Fisher Prize, David Shifrin has long been one of the most highly respected American clarinetists for his work as orchestral soloist, recitalist, chamber music collaborator and educator. He has appeared with the nation’s foremost symphonies and internationally with orchestras in Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Japan, Korea and Taiwan. A much sought after chamber musician, he has collaborated with such distinguished ensembles and artists as the Guarneri, Tokyo, Emerson, Orion, Dover and Miro String Quartets, trumpeter and composer Wynton Marsalis, and pianists Emanuel Ax, Andre Previn and André Watts. He has served as principal clarinetist with the Cleveland Orchestra, American Symphony Orchestra (under Stokowski), the Honolulu, Dallas and New Haven symphonies, the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra and the New York Chamber Symphony. Shifrin joined the faculty at the Yale School of Music in 1987, and since 2008, has been artistic director of the Chamber Music Society of Yale and Yale’s annual concert series at Carnegie Hall. In January 2022, he was named the Samuel S. Sanford Professor in the Practice of Clarinet. He has also served on the faculties of The Juilliard School, University of Southern California, University of Michigan, Cleveland Institute of Music and the University of Hawaii. He has received three Grammy nominations, is the recipient of a Solo Recitalists’ Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts and a Concert Artist Guild Virtuoso Award, among many other prestigious honors.

Following its highly acclaimed 25th anniversary season, including sold-out shows and a celebrated performance accompanying award-winning alt-rock indie vocalist Natalie Merchant, South Florida’s largest symphonic orchestra is continuing its musical journey of excellence inspiring audiences of all ages.

Single tickets for this program begin at $25 for the New World Center in Miami Beach.

The Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County and the Dranoff 2 Piano Foundation are proud to present PIANO SLAM 2024 on April 11, 2024 at 7:30 p.m. in the Center’s Knight Concert Hall. Taking place during National Poetry Month, the event features Miami’s top teen poets who will share their original spoken word mash-ups paired with classical and hip-hop music around the theme, “My Music, Miami, All We Can Save – Rhythms & Writings of Restoration,” and set to “Suite Afro Cubana to Lico Jimenez” created by the legendary Cuban artist, Chucho Valdés.

Admission to PIANO SLAM 2024 is free*. First-Access Passes, which give guests early access to general admission seating, can be reserved for the performance now. Reserve passes online at arshtcenter.org by calling the Adrienne Arsht Center box office at 305- 949-6722.

In its 17th year, PIANO SLAM features live musical performances and program opportunities for students, families and teachers. This year’s focus centers on the history of artists neglected through cultural suppression. The chosen musical piece for this theme is “Suite Afro Cubana to Lico Jimenez,” Chucho Valdés’ composition dedicated to reclaiming the legacy of Afro-Cuban composers and musicians who have been unjustly overlooked. The poetry competition will expand to include student music and soundscapes that should be safeguarded for future generations. It will also include writing workshops for educators that will include the inspiration of music and the sounds of our environment.

“I am so proud that my piece ‘Suite Afro Cubana to Lico Jimenez’ was selected to be part of Piano Slam 2024. This program and its young generation of poets will help us keep alive Lico’s name and legacy in our culture,” says Chucho Valdés.

In a career spanning more than 60 years, both as a solo artist and bandleader, Valdés has distilled elements of the Afro-Cuban music tradition, jazz, classical music, rock and more, into a deeply personal style. Winner of seven GRAMMY® and six Latin GRAMMY® Awards, Valdés received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Latin Academy of Recording Arts & Science in 2023 and was also inducted into the Latin Songwriters Hall of Fame.

“PIANO SLAM 2024 is a dynamic convergence of Miami’s young poets and the rhythmic legacy of Chucho Valdés, weaving together spoken word and music in a celebration of restoration, inclusion and the enduring power of artistic expression,” says Carlene Sawyer, Piano Slam creator and producer.

PIANO SLAM presents live concerts, poets, scientists and hip-hop spoken word to teens in Miami’s middle and high school classrooms culminating in a countywide poetry competition based on the role of music in their lives. Out of thousands of creative submissions, 16 semifinalists are chosen to perform in the Grand Finals concert and competition on the Arsht Center’s Knight Concert Hall stage. Prizes of $1,000 are awarded to the top student poets. For the past 11 years, PIANO SLAM has included a STEAM track and has taken students and their teachers to music performances, provided teacher workshops, environmental science research activities, and citizen science field trips by students to study environmental issues impacting their lives.

For over a decade, the Dranoff 2 Piano Foundation’s PIANO SLAM has been bridging the creative divide between teenage music enthusiasts and professional performance artists across Miami-Dade County, from Hialeah to the beaches and Miami Gardens to Homestead. The event is co-presented with the Adrienne Arsht Center and sponsored by some of Miami’s most respected institutions, including Miami-Dade County, Miami-Dade County Public Schools, Books & Books, The Children’s Trust, and the Miami HEAT.

PIANO SLAM is directed by Tanisha Cidel with music direction by Martin Bejerano. PIANO SLAM’s wildly popular County-wide music-based poetry competition has worked with more than 150,000 Miami-Dade Public middle and high school students making classical music fun and an inspiration for their own creative writing. Additional musicians include: Anthony “Tony” Laurencio, DJ and the New Canon Chamber Collective for the classical ensemble.

About the Dranoff 2 Piano x Adrienne Arsht Center Partnership
The partnership between The Dranoff Foundation and the Adrienne Arsht Center dates back to 2006, when the Arsht Center had just opened. The Dranoff Foundation, which aims to discover young artists, nurture their talent, and provide them with a platform to showcase their music, joined forces with the Arsht Center to establish a community school-based outreach program in the performing arts. This program was designed to serve young people and their families in the neighborhoods surrounding the new performing arts center.

In the very first year of the PIANO SLAM program, five middle schools located in Overtown, Liberty City, Brownsville, and Little Haiti – participated. Today, more than 100 middle and high schools in Miami Dade Public Schools enjoyed in-school professional artist programs and performances and submitted student poetry to the music-based competition.

Over the 15 years in partnership with the Arsht Center’s community engagement and education initiatives, Dranoff 2 Piano Foundation has brought artists, musicians, scientists and educators into over 100 middle and high schools and every school and community district in the county. The ArshtCenter has partnered in teacher professional development, training educators in all core subjects to use music and arts-integrated curriculum in their classrooms.

Dranoff 2 Piano and the Arsht Center provide performance, art, music, writing, coaching and training for students participating in PIANO SLAM. The Adrienne Arsht Center provides a world-class community-based platform for students and top professional artists to perform in the Finals competition concert in the Knight Concert Hall. Tens of thousands of families throughout Miami Dade County have become part of Miami’s art scene through PIANO SLAM in the schools and the Dranoff 2 Piano performances with award-winning musicians, dancers and top theater professionals as part of a student and professional artist extravaganza of great entertainment in the Knight Concert Hall.

Cost: $45-$90

The Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County is pleased to present Miami-founded, genre-bending band, THE MAVERICKS on March 15, 2024 at 8 p.m. as part of the Live at Knight series in the Center’s Knight Concert Hall.

Tickets for THE MAVERICKS range from $45-$90* and may be purchased now online at arshtcenter.org, or at the Adrienne Arsht Center box office by calling (305) 949-6722.

THE MAVERICKS, the eclectic rock and country group known for crisscrossing musical boundaries with abandon, have gone through three distinct phases since their founding in Miami in 1989. An initial period of heady success marked by big hits and critical acclaim in the ’90s. A long hiatus starting in 2003, when the musicians each went their own way. And finally, a triumphant reunion in 2012 that held long enough for the band to recently celebrate its 30th anniversary.

THE MAVERICKS ushered in the fourth phase of its evolution with the No. 1 Billboard debut of their first-ever, all-Spanish album, En Español, released in 2020 on the band’s own Mono Mundo label. Although all 12 tracks are in Spanish, the collection represents a diversity of musical styles and cultural traditions, from tender boleros to brassy mariachi and reimagined Afro-Cuban classics. Seven of the tunes are gems drawn from the vast Latin American songbook, while five are originals written or co-written by the band’s frontman, Raul Malo.

THE MAVERICKS’ infectious live show, which fuses rock, latin, Tex-Mex, norteño and salsa varieties, has earned the group worldwide recognition as “America’s greatest live dance band.” Fronted by Cuban-American vocalist Raul Malo, whose timeless and inimitable voice NPR Music calls “one of the best in the U.S.,” THE MAVERICKS have remained a highly-coveted touring ensemble for over three decades.

Joined by special guest Hector Tellez Jr., whose classic-rock swagger and exotic flair have garnered him a passionate audience in his homeland of Cuba, THE MAVERICKS will be performing hits like “Dance the Night Away,” “All You Ever Do is Bring Me Down,” and “What a Crying Shame.”

Ode to Joy! In a milestone musical event, South Florida Symphony Orchestra (SFSO), led by Sebrina María Alfonso, will pay passionate homage to Beethoven, one of classical music’s most revered composers, with a 200th anniversary celebration of his monumental choral masterpiece, Symphony No. 9 in D minor, Op. 125! One hundred voices from South Florida Symphony Chorus, directed by Dr. Giselle Elgarresta Rios, featuring talented singers from Barry University, Our Lady of Lourdes Academy, the Gay Men’s Chorus of South Florida, and the community, will add to the revelry. Soloists Elizabeth Caballero (soprano), Rebecca Ringle Kamarei (mezzo-soprano), Adam Diegel (tenor), and Luis Ledesma (baritone) will also perform a selection of grand opera arias. The performance takes place at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, March 3, at Broward Center for the Performing Arts (BCPA) in Fort Lauderdale. A pre-concert chat illuminating the works and composers will take place 30 minutes prior to the concert with Dr. Alan Mason.

Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 premiered in 1824, Vienna, to an enthusiastic audience. During its composition, Beethoven was steadily losing his hearing and by the time of its premiere, he was profoundly deaf. He never heard a note outside his own imagination. Various accounts maintain that he had to be directed to face the audience during the performance to see its appreciation.

Complementing these milestone performances will be a selection of moving operatic arias from Bizet’s Carmen, Verdi’s Rigoletto, Puccini’s Turandot and Tosca, and Delibes’ Lakmé.

Following its highly acclaimed 25th anniversary season, including sold-out shows and a celebrated performance accompanying award-winning alt-rock indie vocalist Natalie Merchant, South Florida’s largest symphonic orchestra is continuing its musical journey of excellence inspiring audiences of all ages.

Upcoming concerts include masterworks from Bernstein, Schubert, Stravinsky, Tchaikovsky and more, including another SFSO premiere, Ellen Taaffe Zwilich’s Clarinet Concerto. Additional popular music performances including Maestra Alfonso conducting SFSO in a live performance of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone ™ In Concert on April 5 and 6 and Classical Mystery Tour: A Symphonic Tribute to The Beatles on May 11, both at Broward Center for the Performing Arts (separately ticketed events).

Single tickets for this program begin at $25 in Fort Lauderdale and flexible ticket packages are on sale now.

Orchestra Miami to Perform Carnival of the Animals at Zoo Miami 2/25/24

A celebration that’s 40+ years in the making takes flight at Zoo Miami on Sunday, February 25 with Orchestra Miami’s performance of Camille Saint-Saëns’s 1886 suite, Le Carnaval des Animaux (Carnival of Animals). For Elaine Rinaldi, Orchestra Miami’s artistic director, this performance is deeply personal.

In 1982, at the age of 14, Elaine Rinaldi made her soloist debut as a pianist with the Ft. Lauderdale Chamber Orchestra performing Carnival of Animals at what was then the newly opened Miami Metro Zoo. Even at that young age, Elaine knew that she wanted to recreate that event and allow other promising young artists to perform locally with a professional orchestra. Forty-two years later, her dream becomes a reality. “This concert is a full circle moment for me, and it’s perfect for Orchestra Miami’s ‘Discover Miami Through Music’ series, which I started in 2014. You can’t perform this suite without duo pianists, so I’m especially pleased to be giving two young piano soloists the rare opportunity to perform with a professional orchestra,” said Rinaldi.

Orchestra Miami will offer two performances of the humorous musical suite of fourteen movements, each representing an animal. They are honored to have Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava narrating the 11 AM performance while Conservationist, Ron Magill, will narrate the 1 PM performance. Maestro Rinaldi will be conducting the performances, and the piano soloists are Elisabeth Thomashoff originally from Vienna, Austria, and Aneliya Novikova originally from Voronezh, Russia; both 21 or younger and still students at the Lynn Conservatory of Music. Running approximately 45 minutes each, both shows are free to the public with the purchase of a Zoo Miami ticket. Before this performance, a special free “preview” performance will take place at the Coral Gables Museum on Family Day on Aragon, Saturday, February 10 at 1 PM.

“I’m excited to be a part of Orchestra Miami’s Carnival of Animals. It is certainly one of Camille Saint Sans’ most beautiful works. From the first note to the last, it’s got everything — excitement, eccentric ideas, and instrumentation that competes with playfulness, elegance, and science. This musical suite and Zoo Miami is the perfect marriage,” said Ron Magill. The animals depicted in Carnival of the Animals are lions, hens/roosters, tortoises, elephants, and kangaroos, to name a few. It will also feature The Swan, one of the most famous and recognizable pieces in all of music history. This performance will also include Ottorino Respighi’s The Birds, which is based on music from the 17th and 18th centuries and represents an attempt to transcribe birdsong into musical notation, illustrating bird actions, such as fluttering wings, or scratching feet.

“Saint-Saëns wrote this suite for fun in February 1886 and then prohibited anyone from listening to it until 1922. 102 years later, this is still one of his most enduring and fun compositions. What better way to enjoy this whimsical piece about animals than among the animals,” said Rinaldi.

South Florida Symphony Orchestra Presents Price, Montgomery, Brahms & Bach Featuring Awadagin Pratt 1/20/24

South Florida Symphony Orchestra Presents Price, Montgomery, Brahms & Bach Featuring Awadagin Pratt
Saturday, 01/20/2024-, 07:30 pm-09:30 pm
Tennessee Williams Theatre
5901 College Rd,
Key West, Florida, 33040
Buy Tickets
Cost: $25 – $95

In advance of Black History Month, South Florida Symphony Orchestra (SFSO), led by Music Director Sebrina María Alfonso, will present an adventurous program illuminating two prominent African American female composers – Florence Price, the first Black woman to have a composition performed by a major orchestra and Jessie Montgomery, whose Rounds for solo piano and orchestra is currently nominated for a GRAMMY for Best Contemporary Classical Composition. Award-winning pianist Awadagin Pratt will accompany SFSO for its premiere of Montgomery’s new piano concerto and Bach’s Keyboard Concerto No. 4. The program is anchored by Brahm’s lyrically sweeping Symphony No. 1. The Key West season opening concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, January 20, at the Tennessee Williams Theatre at The College of the Florida Keys (5901 College Road).

Awadagin Pratt joins SFSO for Jessie Montgomery’s Rounds. Rounds is the opening track on Pratt’s 2023 release STILLPOINT, which explores the truth and beauty found within T.S. Eliot’s Four Quartets, named by NPR as one of the 10 Best Classical Albums of 2023. For SFSO’s premiere of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Keyboard Concerto No. 4, (originally for harpsichord) Pratt will perform the sprightly work created in 1738. It’s a shimmering work that scholars believe may have once been a concerto for oboe, given the exceptional lyrical melodies for the soloist, but one will never truly know.

Since winning the prestigious Naumburg International Piano Competition in 1992 and receiving a 1994 Avery Fisher Career Grant, Pratt has received international acclaim for delivering “forceful, imaginative, and precisely tinted” performances (Washington Post) and is hailed as “one of the great and distinctive American pianists and conductors of our time” (WGBH). He has performed across six continents with the Boston and Chicago Symphony Orchestras, the New York Philharmonic, and many others; solo recitals at the Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall, and Lincoln Center. Between performances at the piano, Pratt also maintains a bustling conducting career. He is professor of piano at the San Francisco Conservatory. He remains the only graduate of the Peabody Institute (where he studied alongside SFSO’s Maestra Alfonso) to earn performance certificates in three areas — violin, piano, and conducting — and has received the Distinguished Alumni award from Johns Hopkins University and honorary doctorates from Illinois Wesleyan University, Susquehanna University, and the Boston Conservatory.
Jessie Montgomery is an acclaimed composer, violinist, and educator. A recipient of the Leonard Bernstein Award from the ASCAP Foundation and the Sphinx Medal of Excellence, Montgomery weaves classical music with elements of vernacular music, improvisation, poetry, and social consciousness. Her composition Rounds for solo piano and orchestra was commissioned by Awadagin Pratt and is based on exacting tensions from T.S. Eliot’s poem “Burnt Norton” which would later become the first of his “Four Quartets.” Rounds is nominated for a 2023 GRAMMY for Best Contemporary Classical Composition and The Washington Post stated of the work, “Rounds” was something of a revelation, and a reinforcement of Montgomery’s reliably vital voice as a composer.”

Florence Price was the first African American woman to be recognized as a symphonic composer, and the first to have a composition played by a major orchestra – the Chicago Symphony’s performance at the 1933 World’s Fair — the Century of Progress Exposition. Price composed over 300 works: four symphonies, four concertos, as well as choral works, art songs, chamber music and music for solo instruments. SFSO will pay homage to this unsung hero with its premiere performance of her Andante Moderato, a piece from a string quartet that fuses Price’s fluency with African American spirituals with Western musical forms.

Rounding out SFSO’s Masterworks program is a performance of Johannes Brahms’ Symphony No. 1 in C minor, Op. 68. Brahms, himself, declared that the symphony, from sketches to finishing touches, took 21 years, from 1855 to 1876. The premiere of this symphony, conducted by the composer’s friend Felix Otto Dessoff, took place in 1876, in Karlsruhe, then in the Grand Duchy of Baden.

Following its highly acclaimed 25th anniversary season, including sold-out shows and a celebrated performance accompanying award-winning alt-rock indie vocalist Natalie Merchant, South Florida’s largest symphonic orchestra is continuing its musical journey of excellence inspiring audiences of all ages.

Upcoming concerts include masterworks from Bernstein, Ravel, Stravinsky, and more, plus a SFSO premiere by Ellen Taaffe Zwilich. SFSO will also host a 200th anniversary celebration of Beethoven’s magnificent Symphony No. 9. Additional popular music performances including Maestra Alfonso conducting SFSO in a live performance of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone ™ In Concert on April 5 and 6 and Classical Mystery Tour: A Symphonic Tribute to The Beatles on May 11, both at Broward Center for the Performing Arts (separately ticketed events).

He has performed across six continents with the Boston and Chicago Symphony Orchestras, the New York Philharmonic, and many others; solo recitals at the Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall, and Lincoln Center. Between performances at the piano, Pratt also maintains a bustling conducting career. He is professor of piano at the San Francisco Conservatory. He remains the only graduate of the Peabody Institute (where he studied alongside SFSO’s Maestra Alfonso) to earn performance certificates in three areas — violin, piano, and conducting — and has received the Distinguished Alumni award from Johns Hopkins University and honorary doctorates from Illinois Wesleyan University, Susquehanna University, and the Boston Conservatory.

Jessie Montgomery is an acclaimed composer, violinist, and educator. A recipient of the Leonard Bernstein Award from the ASCAP Foundation and the Sphinx Medal of Excellence, Montgomery weaves classical music with elements of vernacular music, improvisation, poetry, and social consciousness. Her composition Rounds for solo piano and orchestra was commissioned by Awadagin Pratt and is based on exacting tensions from T.S. Eliot’s poem “Burnt Norton” which would later become the first of his “Four Quartets.” Rounds is nominated for a 2023 GRAMMY for Best Contemporary Classical Composition and The Washington Post stated of the work, “Rounds” was something of a revelation, and a reinforcement of Montgomery’s reliably vital voice as a composer.”

Florence Price was the first African American woman to be recognized as a symphonic composer, and the first to have a composition played by a major orchestra – the Chicago Symphony’s performance at the 1933 World’s Fair — the Century of Progress Exposition. Price composed over 300 works: four symphonies, four concertos, as well as choral works, art songs, chamber music and music for solo instruments. SFSO will pay homage to this unsung hero with its premiere performance of her Andante Moderato, a piece from a string quartet that fuses Price’s fluency with African American spirituals with Western musical forms.

Rounding out SFSO’s Masterworks program is a performance of Johannes Brahms’ Symphony No. 1 in C minor, Op. 68. Brahms, himself, declared that the symphony, from sketches to finishing touches, took 21 years, from 1855 to 1876. The premiere of this symphony, conducted by the composer’s friend Felix Otto Dessoff, took place in 1876, in Karlsruhe, then in the Grand Duchy of Baden.

Following its highly acclaimed 25th anniversary season, including sold-out shows and a celebrated performance accompanying award-winning alt-rock indie vocalist Natalie Merchant, South Florida’s largest symphonic orchestra is continuing its musical journey of excellence inspiring audiences of all ages.

Upcoming concerts include masterworks from Bernstein, Schubert, Stravinsky, Tchaikovsky and more, Including another SFSO premiere, Elllen Taaffe Zwilich’s Clarinet Concerto. SFSO will also host a 200thanniversary celebration of Beethoven’s magnificent Symphony No. 9 on March 3 at Broward Center for the Performing Arts. Additional popular music performances including Maestra Alfonso conducting SFSO in a live performance of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone ™ In Concert on April 5 and 6 and Classical Mystery Tour: A Symphonic Tribute to The Beatles on May 11, both at Broward Center for the Performing Arts (separately ticketed events).

Cost: $35; $65 VIP ticket includes premium seating and a meet and greet photo opportunity with both performers

Back by popular demand, Joe Posa and Seth Sikes will reunite for a performance of “TRIBUTES,” a stunning homage to iconic female legends, on Saturday, January 13, from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m., at Sunshine Cathedral Center for the Performing Arts (1480 SW 9th Avenue). Tickets for this captivating (18+) show are on sale, now.

This showcase, produced by the accomplished duo, unites two worlds of performance art – female impersonation and live song. Joe Posa will impersonate Joan Rivers, Barbra Streisand, and Liza Minnelli while Seth Sikes will enchant audiences with his soulful voice, singing nostalgic melodies made famous by Judy Garland, Bernadette Peters, and other artists. The cleverly choreographed show includes duets with Seth Sikes and Joe Posa as Barbra and Liza.

Can we talk?! Joe Posa has made a name for himself in show business, starting his illustrious career in musical theater as a featured performer/dancer in the international touring company of West Side Story plus other musicals including Anything Goes, Grease, A Chorus Line and South Pacific. In 1993, he then found his wings as a sought-after female celebrity impersonator. As a cast member in several productions of “An Evening at La Cage,” he has performed as Barbra Streisand, Liza Minnelli, Gloria Estefan and Michael Jackson. Posa was also Susan Lucci’s Erica Kane character double on ABC’s All My Children, as well as Tina Fey’s Liz Lemon character double on NBC’s 30 Rock. For more than 30 years, Posa has produced and starred in multiple shows in New York City, London, Provincetown, Puerta Vallarta, Boston, Palm Springs and other cities. His solo productions include “Guys as Dolls,” “An Evening at the Birdcage,” “Joe Posa Poses,” and “The Bitch is Back!” Also, he has performed at numerous red carpet corporate functions, charity fundraisers and elegant private events. Having performed alongside Ms. Rivers on two separate occasions, Posa was lovingly called by Ms. Rivers, her “favorite Joan Rivers impersonator.”

Seth Sikes is one of New York’s most popular young nightclub performers. Hailed as “the best male singer of his generation” by Theatre Scene, Sikes has been selling out venues since his 2014 debut of “Seth Sikes Sings Judy Garland.” The show recounted how Garland inspired Sikes as a young boy in Paris, Texas, while he belted the legend’s greatest hits backed by a seven-piece band. The show won Broadway World’s Best Tribute Show award and prompted The New York Times to declare, “The performance was a hit with critics and audiences, alike.” The reviewers were equally enthusiastic toward his follow-up show, “Seth Sikes Sings Liza Minnelli.” The New York Post relayed, “It was a heartfelt concert. Sikes has a heap of fans, and his audiences are always tightly packed and brimming with enthusiasm for his booming, jazzy renditions of their favorite songs.” When the Covid pandemic prevented Sikes from performing for live audiences, he created a series of online music video parodies that went viral, viewed by hundreds of thousands. His most recent video, “Ring Them Bells,” was selected to close the globally broadcast Liza Minnelli 75th birthday tribute. Sikes also works in the theatre behind the scenes. He was associate director for The Band’s Visit and The Nance on Broadway. He directed the original musical Bunked! which won Outstanding Musical at the New York International Fringe Festival in 2010, as well as “The 7th Annual Broadway Beauty Pageant.”

Tickets for “TRIBUTES” start at $35 with an option to purchase a $25 pre-show reception ticket including beverages and light snacks. To purchase tickets, visit https://bit.ly/Tributes2024.

The Wall and Beyond – The Pink Floyd Experience – In Surround Sound
The Wall and Beyond is a select group of world touring and Grammy award winning artists, along with a world class production team that have come together recreating the Moment Pink Floyd Delivered the World’s First Surround Sound Concert! This unique show will also take you on a journey through time and the endless creatives of Pink Floyd… You will revisit Pink Floyd live like never before.
“Sonic innovators don’t come much bigger than Pink Floyd who not only re-imagined sound, but also changed how we take in live music. When the band performed the world’s first-ever surround sound concert at London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall on May 12th, 1967, the group would change how we consume live audio and concerts forever.”
The collaboration and chemistry of this show will leave you Breathless!
(1967- Roger Waters would later vividly recall the show: “The sounds traveled around the hall in a sort of circle, giving the audience an eerie effect of being absolutely surrounded by this music.”)

Under the baton of Artistic Director Gabe Salazar, GMCSF will treat audiences to a selection of popular holiday favorites, new standards, and creative vocal arrangements of time-honored classics.

Special guest vocalist Amber Riley, best known for playing Mercedes Jones on the Fox comedy-drama series Glee from 2009 – 2015, will join GMCSF, lending her soaring vocals to the gifted group. For her performance in Glee, she and the cast won a Screen Actors Guild Award and have been nominated for three Teen Choice Awards, three NAACP Image Awards, and a Grammy Award. Riley and partner Derek Hough won season 17 of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars 2013. In December 2015, she portrayed Addaperle, the Good Witch of the North, in NBC’s live performance of The Wiz and the following year, she originated the lead role of Effie White in the West End debut of Dreamgirls, for which she won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Actress in a Musical and an Evening Standard Theatre Award for Best Musical Performance. In 2017, Riley appeared as a judge on BBC One’s musical theatre talent show Let It Shine and formed a musical theatre supergroup with Beverley Knight and Cassidy Janson, known collectively as Leading Ladies, which was signed to East West Records/Warner. Her debut album, “Songs from the Stage,” was also released in 2017, and in 2020, she released an EP as just “RILEY.” Most recently, Amber won season 8 of FOX’s The Masked Singer making history as the first celebrity ever to win both The Masked Singer and Dancing With The Stars. GMCSF will perform “Hark The Herald Angels Sing,” “Silver Bells,” and “We Wish You A Merry Christmas,” among others.

With more than 180 singers on their roster, the Gay Men’s Chorus of South Florida is the most prominent gay men’s chorus in the southeastern United States and one of the country’s top 10 largest LGBTQ+ choruses. With a budget of over $1 million, the Chorus reaches more than 20,000 people each season through its mainstage concert season and numerous community appearances.

South Florida Symphony Orchestra’s Handel’s Messiah and Holiday Pops at The Parker 12/2/23

South Florida Symphony Orchestra’s Handel’s Messiah and Holiday Pops at The Parker
Saturday, 12/02/2023-, 07:30 pm-09:30 pm
The Parker
707 NE 8th Street,
Fort Lauderdale, Florida, 33304
Website
Cost: Tickets start at just $15

South Florida Symphony Orchestra (SFSO) will light up the stage with the return of its popular holiday program with performances of Handel’s glorious Messiah, and timeless uplifting Holiday Pops on December 2, at 7:30 p.m., at The Parker in Fort Lauderdale. Sebrina María Alfonso, music director, will conduct the performances featuring soloists Katherine Henly (soprano), Lisa Marie Rogali (mezzo-soprano), Chauncey Packer (tenor) and Neil Nelson (bass baritone), and the South Florida Symphony Chorus.

Jonathan Kandell of Smithsonian magazine writes, “A musical rite of the holiday season, the Baroque-era oratorio still awes listeners 250 years after the composer’s death.” In 1789, Mozart posthumously paid Handel the supreme compliment of reorchestrating Messiah but even Mozart confessed himself to be humble in the face of Handel’s genius describing his orchestrations: “When he chooses, he strikes like a thunderbolt.” In 1823, Beethoven proclaimed Handel to be the ‘greatest’ composer that ever lived.

SFSO’s 2023 holiday program will open with a selection of time-honored Holiday Pops festive favorites including selections from The Polar Express, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Bocelli’s The Prayer, plus audience sing-alongs. SFSO will then launch into Part I of Handel’s Messiah. The performance culminates with the iconic “Hallelujah” chorus as sung by the South Florida Symphony Chorus, made-up of seasoned chorale singers and community talent, directed by Dr. Giselle Elgarresta Rios. Rios and Maestra Alfonso collaborated to create the South Florida Symphony Chorus in 2019, which made its debut at the Beethoven 250th celebration in February of 2020.

Tickets for Handel’s Messiah start at $15 for the December 2 concert at The Parker (707 NE 8th St, Fort Lauderdale) and can be purchased online at https://southfloridasymphony.org/handels-messiah or via the Broward Center for the Performing Arts Box Office at (954) 462-0222.

Cost: 25 (students 15)

When fall turns to winter in Miami, we South Floridians can miss a new chill in the air and the changing color of the leaves. Dance NOW! Miami, one of Florida’s leading companies, presents their Program I, timed this year to emphasize that inflection point, when they showcase one of their own repertory works, “Random Patterns of Falling Leaves.” Performances take place Sunday, December 3 at Broward Center’s Amaturo Theater, 201 SW Fifth Avenue, Fort Lauderdale, and again on Sunday, December 10 at Coral Gables Sanctuary of the Arts, 410 Andalusia Avenue. These evenings also include the world premiere of “Tethered” and a trademark classic piece, “Chronicles.” Full info and tickets at http://www.dancenowmiami.org/events/programone.

“Random Patterns of Falling Leaves” is a fiery and poetic work that will transport audiences to a northern landscape as the wind slowly strips the leaves off the trees in preparation for winter. Jointly choreographed by DNM’s Artistic Directors Hannah Baumgarten and Diego Salterini, it also features striking costumes and sets by Marylin Skow and Bruce F. Brown. “We are excited to be able to bring one of our favorite, breathtaking repertory works back to South Florida audiences,” said Salterini.

“Tethered”, choreographed by Hannah Baumgarten, is a world premiere of a contemporary ballet quartet, with music from long-time collaborator Davidson Jaconello, with Felix Rosch. The piece explores the ways in which we are all tied to each other through relationships and communities. “It’s always a pleasure to develop a new work to gift to Miami audiences for the holiday season,” said Baumgarten. “Chronicles” is a DNM repertory work choreographed by Diego Salterini about the perfect moments of falling in love. It was slated to be restaged in 2020 but due to the COVID pandemic, it was not.

Tickets for the Broward Center on Sunday, December 3 at 6:00 pm, are $50 reserved seating, $20 for students with valid ID; and for Coral Gables on Sunday, December 10 at 6:00 pm $25 general admission, $15 for students.

Paperwater released its first single in 2017 and began playing shows shortly after with acts such as Snakehips and Sango. Their most notable performances include openings for Flying Lotus, Mura Masa, Sohn, Lido, Virgil Abloh, and festival slots at Middlelands, III Points, and EDC.

Greensky Bluegrass – Presented by Murmrr x LPR – Live at Miami Beach Bandshell on Friday, January 12th, 2024

6:00 PM doors | 7:00 PM show (all ages)

For two decades now, Greensky Bluegrass have been building an empire, brick by brick. They are widely known for their dazzling live performances and relentless touring schedule, but that is only the tip of the complex tale of the five musicians that make up Greensky Bluegrass: Anders Beck [dobro], Michael Arlen Bont [banjo], Dave Bruzza [guitar], Mike Devol [upright bass], and Paul Hoffman [Mandolin]. The five are connected through a deep bond, just as they are seasoned road warriors, they’re a band of brothers who have seen each other through decades of ups and downs, personal and collective highlights, and the moments when life turns it all upside down. These are real people having real experiences. As with traditional bluegrass, they write about their own contemporary day-to-day happenings, emotions, and experiences in the modern world.

Food & beverage are available for purchase at the show. The Bandshell is an open-air covered venue, all programs are rain or shine. Your ticket, once purchased, is non-refundable. Any questions? info@miamibeachbandshell.com
