Beethoven on the Beach
Orchestra Miami Presents â€œBeethoven on the Beachâ€,
Free Outdoor Concerts for the Community
Orchestra Miami is proud to continue its series of Free Outdoor Concerts, with three performances of â€œBeethoven on the Beachâ€. These concerts are presented as a gift to the community, completely free of charge. The concerts are co-sponsored by the Miami Salon Group, the City of Sunny Isles Beach, the City of Miami Beach and BB&T Bank.
In what has become an annual event, Orchestra Miami will present these concerts in three public parks in Miami-Dade County:
â€¢ Sunday, March 4, 2012; 4:00 PM at Heritage Park (19200 Collins Avenue) in Sunny Isles Beach
â€¢ Wednesday, March 7, 2012; 7:30 PM at the Pinecrest Gardensâ€™ â€œBanyan Bowlâ€ (11000 SW 57 Avenue) in Pinecrest- gates open at 6:00 PM
â€¢ Friday, April 20, 2012; 7:30 PM at Collins Park (21rst Street and Collins Avenue) in Miami Beach
The program includes Mozartâ€™s â€œOverture to the Magic Fluteâ€, Lee Hoibyâ€™s â€œI Have A Dreamâ€ featuring Graham Fandrei as the baritone soloist, and Beethovenâ€™s iconic Symphony #5 in c minor, Op. 67. All three performances will be conducted by Orchestra Miamiâ€™s Artistic Director, Elaine Rinaldi.
This yearâ€™s theme, â€œBeethoven on the Beachâ€, makes the connection between Beethoven and Civil Rights through the Age of Enlightenment. â€œFor me, these concerts are about communityâ€, says Artistic Director Rinaldi. â€œIt makes me very happy to be able to bring people together to enjoy our gorgeous weather and share in the experience of listening to high quality classical music. This is the perfect opportunity to introduce your children to the excitement of live classical music.â€
