Beethoven on the Beach

Orchestra Miami Presents “Beethoven on the Beach”,
Free Outdoor Concerts for the Community
Orchestra Miami is proud to continue its series of Free Outdoor Concerts, with three performances of “Beethoven on the Beach”. 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:

• Sunday, March 4, 2012; 4:00 PM at Heritage Park (19200 Collins Avenue) in Sunny Isles Beach
• Wednesday, March 7, 2012; 7:30 PM at the Pinecrest Gardens’ “Banyan Bowl” (11000 SW 57 Avenue) in Pinecrest- gates open at 6:00 PM
• Friday, April 20, 2012; 7:30 PM at Collins Park (21rst Street and Collins Avenue) in Miami Beach


The program includes Mozart’s “Overture to the Magic Flute”, Lee Hoiby’s “I Have A Dream” featuring Graham Fandrei as the baritone soloist, and Beethoven’s iconic Symphony #5 in c minor, Op. 67. All three performances will be conducted by Orchestra Miami’s Artistic Director, Elaine Rinaldi.

This year’s theme, “Beethoven on the Beach”, makes the connection between Beethoven and Civil Rights through the Age of Enlightenment. “For me, these concerts are about community”, says Artistic Director Rinaldi. “It 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.”
