South Florida Symphony Orchestra Presents Shostakovich, Gottsch and Great Opera Arias 1/24/23

South Florida Symphony Orchestra Presents Shostakovich, Gottsch and Great Opera Arias
Tuesday, 01/24/2023-, 07:30 pm-09:30 pm
New World Center
500 17th Street,
Miami Beach, Florida, 33139
Cost: Tickets start at just $25 for the concert at New World Center

South Florida Symphony Orchestra’s (SFSO) 25th anniversary season continues to shine with Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 9, the world premiere of Ocklawaha by composer-in-residence John Gottsch, and a selection of great opera arias from Puccini, Verdi, and Lara. Led by Music Director Sebrina María Alfonso with guest soloists Catalina Cuervo, soprano, and Adam Diegel, tenor, the Masterworks program is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. on January 24 at New World Center in Miami Beach.

Originally intended to be to a grandiose piece that would glorify Stalin’s regime and Russian victory over the Nazis in 1945, Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 9 rendered a more complex, thoughtful and sometimes carefree composition. The composer was known for his resistance to the Soviet rule and his subversion tactics often promising to compose the piece the regime wanted while actually giving it something else.

SFSO’s composer-in-residence John Gottsch will present the world premiere of Ocklawaha. The Ocklawaha is a river originating in the lakes of central Florida and flowing north through some of the most mysterious, wild, and breathtakingly beautiful parts of the state. As a young boy, the composer traveled the Ocklawaha with his father, learning the history of the river and surrounding lakes, that brought to life on passing shores, the escaped slaves, Seminole warriors, and a Civil War battle. The musical narrative brings to life the storied struggles of Florida’s Native American ancestors through thoughtfully arranged orchestral movements.

John D. Gottsch was born in New Orleans, Louisiana and moved to Florida with his family, shortly thereafter. He spent his youth in the lake country of the Sunshine State traveling extensively and observing natural habitats. These explorations of Florida gave him an enduring love for its beauty and wildlife. He has been a lifelong composer and a number of his compositions reflect his deep appreciation of the outdoors. Last year, SFSO premiered the live performance of Gottsch’s original composition Princess Yurievskaya, and in 2020, SFSO premiered Sunset, both of which were featured on Gottsch’s 2020 debut album released by Naxos Records, the world’s leading classical music label. SFSO also performed Gottsch’s Bagatelles for Violin & Piano as part of its Summer With the Symphony Series in June 2021. His piano suite, Homosassa, premiered in Palm Beach in 2020. His piano quintet, Maryland Hunt, premiered at the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Washington, DC in 2018 and has been performed in Philadelphia, Vienna, Rotterdam and Baltimore. Gottsch, a full-time doctor, now splits his time between Baltimore and Key West.

In addition, the program includes with a selection of great opera arias performed by Catalina Cuervo and Adam Diegel – Puccini’s “O Mio Babbino Caro,” “Un Bel Dì, Vedremo,” and “O Soave Fanciulla,” Agustín Lara’s “Granada,” Verdi’s “La Donna è Mobile” and “Brindisi” (The Drinking Song from La Traviata).

Tickets for the Masterworks II program start at $25 for New World Center. Tickets may be purchased by visiting southfloridasymphony.org/2022-23-season or by calling (954) 522-8445.

With the goal of creating a safe space at which to hold local LGBTQ community events, the auditorium at ArtServe has been officially renamed as “The Our Fund Foundation Hall at ArtServe.”

“The Our Fund Foundation is one of the top three LGBTQ-focused foundations in the entire nation,” explained ArtServe Executive Director Jason Hughes. “Especially because they’re known for their careful, thorough assessment of partners, we’re honored they chose our space for their investment.”

An opening reception has been planned at ArtServe to introduce the newly renamed venue on Tues., Jan. 24 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. The event will feature a special program of artists and arts groups supported by The Our Fund Foundation. To RSVP email wfloresbravo@our-fund.org.

The Our Fund Foundation promotes philanthropy, manages enduring investments and conducts impactful grant-making to improve the lives of those in the LGBTQ community in South Florida.

A diverse slate of future events has already been planned for The Our Fund Foundation Hall at ArtServe throughout 2023. The newly sponsored auditorium recently kicked off the schedule with a guest appearance by onePulse Foundation’s Barbara Poma, who toured Florida in her efforts to memorialize those who died in the 2016 Orlando Pulse nightclub massacre.

“Having a dedicated space helps to galvanize our many community programs,” Our Fund Foundation President David Jobin said. “Knowing there’s a safe place at which the LGBTQ community can gather is a cornerstone of furthering our outreach and ensuring the success of our funding recipients in turn.”

In between Our Fund events, The Our Fund Foundation Hall at ArtServe will be available for booking by other organizations. The flexible space includes a stage, light and sound system, and theater-style or table seating for up to 175 people. To book The Our Fund Foundation Hall at ArtServe, email artserve.org/event-venues.
