Once again this fall, the community is invited to partake in all that Festival Miami has to offer – from world premieres and symphonic concerts, to chamber music presentations and jazz performances. Expect the extraordinary and prepare to be amazed at Festival Miami 2010.
The 2010 season is scheduled to commence on October 8 and conclude on October 30. Dean Berg’s vision for the 27th season of Festival Miami presents 20 concerts over a four-week period. Each concert will fall under one of the four unique themes, which include: “Great Performances,” “Jazz and Beyond,” “Creative American Music,” and “Music of the Americas.”
Festival Miami, the annual music festival that opens the South Florida arts season, provides superior and diverse musical programming each year, while expanding academic opportunities and cultural enrichment to all of South Florida and its visitors. It’s a musical experience no one should miss.
Festival Miami has set a precedent over the last 26 years by providing a month-long series that contains a blend of artistically and culturally diverse music and educational opportunities. The festival offers 20-30 concerts each season, providing for people of all ages and income levels the chance to be enriched by live musical performances. It is unrivaled in its scope of musical presentations and is known throughout South Florida, the U.S., and the international community for its cultural contributions.
In its last two seasons, over 24,000 music patrons have attended Festival Miami performances. Since its inception over two decades ago, Festival Miami has presented performers from six continents. Past series have included concerts by artists from Argentina, Poland, Brazil, Russia, Mexico, Germany, Puerto Rico, China, France, and from throughout the U.S.
The Festival’s concert series is unparalleled in its scope of musical magnitude and includes stellar guest artists, the Frost School’s widely known artist-faculty and student ensembles, and an educational mission that includes children’s concerts, master classes, lectures, forums, and concerts that highlight historically-significant events.
