Mar 6th through Jun 6th, 2010
Miami already has a homegrown, exciting performing arts scene, but it can only continue to grow if artists in the area can offer high-quality, public showcases that expose their talent to South Florida audiences.
The new Miami On Stage project is doing just that by presenting locally produced work on a regular basis. It feature some of the best of Miami’s performing artists in a series that takes place in the North Beach neighborhood, beginning March 6th with a free “tropical fusion” concert by Anabel & Ke o Ke at the North Beach Open Space Park. Miami On Stage is produced by FUNDarte, one of the South Florida’s most adventurous presenters of alternative culture, particularly with a Latin flavor.
Miami On Stage will continue on the first Saturday of each month, through June of this year. On April 3rd, the timba band Tiempo Libre will play at the Byron Carlyle Theater launching the Miami premiere performance of their Bach in Havana CD, which was nominated for a Grammy Award this year. On May 1st, again at the Byron Carlyle, there will be an evening with three solo Hip Hop theater artists, Rudi Goblen, Summer Hill Seven and Meshaun Lebrone Arnold. This program is co-presented with Miami Light Project. Performers for the final show on June 6th are yet to be announced.
In addition to each Saturday’s featured performance, there will be free tie-in events throughout the week in the North Beach neighborhood, including panel discussions with the artists, special programs for youth and outdoor activities.
