The Beatles Return to Miami


Well, not quite. But on an evening with a major NASCAR race and Miami Heat game, it was nice to see a sold-out crowd at the Arsht Center for the Miami Symphony Orchestra (MISO). Energetic Conductor Eduardo Marturet unveiled the world premiere of several major Beatles-inspired commissions, based on the 50-year anniversary of the iconic group’s arrival in Miami. It was a brilliant choice, the concert was wonderful. MISO also presented special appearances by former American Idol Ruben Studdard and 13-year-old phenom-vocalist Havan Star, along with The David Anderson (choral) Ensemble.  Featured artists on violin and piano rounded out the two-hour program.   MISO had a checkered track-record some years back, but has re-built the orchestra with an eye towards a very public-friendly repertoire, excellent musicians and well-rounded selections.  IMG_4231

About KFBuchsbaum

A lover of words, learning something new every day, exploring new places, and meeting people from different cultures is what feeds my spirit. One significant thing I learned from my years in market research is that time away from an experience dilutes the memories.  You lose the highs and lows and end up with middle-of-the-road impressions.  The reason I started to blog, was to capture experiences real-time, in the moment.  I hope my moments help you relive some of your own great adventures or maybe plan some new.
