WELCOME TO OUR 2015-2016 SEASON
OUR EXCITING 2014-2015 SEASON concluded May 14-17 with the DISCOVERY SERIES, the crown jewel of the Festival, presented at the Colony Theatre, Miami Beach. We introduced four outstanding pianists to our South Florida audience, artists who truly understand the meaning of Art and are profound and individual thinkers. The series concluded with a reprise of our popular program “Magic of Opera and Piano Transcriptions”, a celebration of great operatic arias and piano music inspired by them. The March 22-24, 2015 MASTER SERIES, at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, explored the world of the Russian composers Sergei Rachmaninoff and Alexander Scriabin. Three pianists who have been acclaimed for their interpretations of these composers offered this tribute. CLASSICAL SUNDAYS AT FIVE, presented at the Aventura Arts and Cultural Center, offered four outstanding international artists in wide ranging programs. Professor Frank Cooper proffered illuminating multi-media lectures for all three series.
During the 2014-2015 season we established a relationship with the Music Club of Hollywood Florida and the Anne Kolb Nature Center, offering free recitals of pianists associated with The Festival. In 2015-2016 we are thrilled to present two winners of the Miami Summer Music Festival Piano Competition at this beautiful venue. Yi-Chih Lu on October 25 and Rhytmie Wong on February 14.
All of our concerts were introduced by Professor Frank Cooper, who provided rich historical context and illuminating insights into the composers and their works.
