University of Miami. From Oct 2nd through 30th, 2009.
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. Festival Miami embarks on a new era in its 26th Anniversary Season with the expansion into two new venues, the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County, and the BankUnited Center at the University of Miami, furthering its commitment to reaching out to new audiences.
The 2009 season is scheduled to commence on October 2nd and conclude on October 30th. Dean Berg’s vision for the 26th season of Festival Miami presents 23 concerts over a four-week period, with each week having its own unique theme. The four one-week themes include “Great Performances,” “Jazz and Beyond,” “Creative American Music,” and “Music of the World.”
The goal of Festival Miami is to uphold and enhance the Mission Statement of the Frost School of Music by offering opportunities for music enjoyment and personal enrichment to as many residents and visitors of South Florida as possible. As such, Festival Miami strives to provide innovative programming that reaches across the cultural boundaries of the South Florida community.
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, and much more. For a complete events calendar, visit the festival’s website.
