MIAMICleveland Orchestra Miami begins its 2016-17 season in November.  The first week of the 2016-17 season includes two Education concerts and concerts by The Cleveland Orchestra at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County.

 

Opening Weekend

Guest conductor Giancarlo Guerrero opens the 2016-17 Cleveland Orchestra Miami season with subscription concerts on November 11 and 12, 2016 at 8:00 p.m.  Gil Shaham appears as violin soloist with the Orchestra in Barber’s Violin Concerto.  The program also includes Berlioz’s Roman Carnival Overture and Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 5.

Again this season, prior to each subscription concert, a Concert Prelude performance for ticket holders will take place in Knight Concert Hall.  Cleveland Orchestra musicians will perform chamber music at these Concert Preludes, which begin at 7:00 p.m. and end at 7:30 p.m.  The November opening weekend Prelude features Eli Matthews (violin), Dane Johansen (cello), and Carolyn Warner (piano) performing Dmitri Shostakovich’s Piano Trio No. 2.  The Preludes are free and open to all ticket holders for that evening’s concert, and seating is general admission.  The Concert Prelude programs and artists for the complete season are listed at the end of this release.

Under 18s Free

As in previous seasons, the Under 18s Free program offers one free ticket with each regular-priced adult paid admission to young people ages 8-17.  The Under 18s Free program is designed to encourage families to attend Cleveland Orchestra concerts together.  Under 18s Free tickets are available for all Cleveland Orchestra Miami subscription series concerts.  Tickets must be purchased through the Adrienne Arsht Center Box Office in person or by phone at 305-949-6722.

 

Education Concerts for Miami-Dade County Public Schools

The Cleveland Orchestra, led by associate conductor Brett Mitchell, will perform two education concerts at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts on November 9, at 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m.  These hour-long concerts are free for students in the Miami-Dade County Public School District.  The program, titled “The Sounds of the Orchestra,” will be performed for more than 4,000 fourth-grade students.  Students will experience the distinct sounds of the string, woodwind, brass, and percussion sections, and will learn how composers weave these individual groups into diverse musical landscapes.  A teacher workshop will be held online on October 26.  The workshop is for teachers whose students are attending the concerts.

 

Music Explorer Programs at Miami-Dade County Public Schools

Music Explorer programs are geared toward younger Miami-Dade public school students and will take place in January.  The programs are a fun way for children to learn about the instruments in the orchestra, one at a time.  Musicians from The Cleveland Orchestra perform short solo selections and kid-friendly tunes that demonstrate their instrument sounds while children sing, clap, and move to the music.  Music Explorer programs will take place in January at Charles R. Drew K-8 Center, Lillie C. Evans K-8 Center, W.J. Bryan Elementary School, and Pine Villa Elementary School.

 

The Cleveland Orchestra joins Coral Reef High School Orchestra in a side-by-side rehearsal

Cleveland Orchestra Miami presents Free Community Concert

The Cleveland Orchestra and the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts will again present a free community concert for Miami’s citizens.  This year’s concert takes place at Miami-Dade County Auditorium in January 2017.  Details on ticket distribution will be announced at a later date.

CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA MIAMI

Cleveland Orchestra Miami was launched in January 2007 during the inaugural season of the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County.  Cleveland Orchestra Miami serves Miami-Dade with an array of musical presentations including a series of subscription concerts, education programs, and community engagement activities – touching the lives of more than 20,000 children, students, and adults each year.  Under the leadership of a Miami-based not-for-profit board of directors, Cleveland Orchestra Miami is supported through the generosity of music-lovers from across South Florida who believe in the power of great orchestral music for adults and young people alike.  Each season of Cleveland Orchestra Miami concerts is presented in partnership with the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts.

 

COMMUNITY AND EDUCATION PROGRAMS
Cleveland Orchestra Miami is presenting community education and engagement programs that reach students of all ages, from pre-school through graduate school, during its eleventh season in 2016-17.  Enriching Miami-Dade County through world-class orchestral performances, meaningful education concerts for school children, and collaborations with community partners such as the University of Miami Frost School of Music, Miami Music Project, and Miami-Dade County Public Schools, Cleveland Orchestra Miami continues its commitment to bringing the community the highest level of classical music available today.

Each year, Cleveland Orchestra Miami builds its education programs with one goal in mind: to inspire music exploration.  This is accomplished through “Music Explorer” programs for pre-school and early elementary school children, which introduce them to orchestral instruments one at a time; daytime Education Concerts for elementary students in the John S. and James L. Knight Concert Hall at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County; and opportunities for young musicians to advance their orchestral performance craft by working side-by-side with Cleveland Orchestra musicians, conductors, and guest artists.
