FIU Music Series: “Something Old, Something New”

Thursday, Mar 2, 2017 at 7:30 PM - English

The Coral Gables High School Band will join the FIU Symphonic Bands & Chamber Winds for a program of time honored treasures in the Wind Band literature from the music of Alfred Reed, Norman Dello Joio and Vincent Persichetti. This concert will close with an exciting new work by John Mackey entitled, “LIGHTNING FIELD,” inspired by a massive work of art in which steel rods are placed over a large expanse of desert, drawing lightning strikes and creating powerful man-made electrical storms. This work draws on the ancient impulse to summon nature’s power and a strong feeling of barely contained energy ripples throughout, enhanced by using thunder sticks to create the sound of man-made thunder surrounding the audience.

First Friday featuring Luis Bofill (Free)

Friday, Mar 3, 2017 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM - English

The City of Miami Beach presents First Friday March 3, featuring Luis Bofill. Luis got his start in Cuba's Nueva Trova movement of the late '70s with the group Cuba Nueva. From there, he would cut a mean rug as an exciting interpreter of standards and for generating an infectious blend of jazz, rumba, Latin, and Afro-beat. He's been calling Miami his home since 1994. And his performances, usually intimate affairs, are praised by the caporegime of Cuba's old-school music.

He has shared the stage with Ruben Blades, Mark Anthony, Al Dimeola, Paquito D'Rivera, and Bono. Miami New Times named him "Best Musical Rejuvenation" back in the 2001 "Best of Miami" issue and he hasn't stopped the groove.

Tables are set up, and food is available from nearby restaurants. Music courtesy of KCC Productions.

Villegas has collaborated with orchestras in more than 30 countries, including the New York, Los Angeles, and Israel Philharmonics and the Boston, San Francisco, Houston, and Toronto Symphonies. He madedebuts with six orchestras including the Pacific, Cincinnati and Santa Barbara Symphonies, and Norway’s Bergen Philharmonic.

A dedicated champion of new music, it was Villegas who premiered Rounds, the first guitar composition of Academy Award-winner John Williams, and gave the world and European premieres of Concerto of Rio de Janeiro by Sérgio Assad.

Gary Burton - Makoto Ozone Duo

Saturday, Mar 4, 2017 at 8:00 PM - English

South Florida JAZZ, the area’s premier modern jazz organization, continues its 25th Anniversary celebration by presenting world-renowned vibraphonist Gary Burton in a career farewell concert with long-term collaborator, pianist Makoto Ozone. Tickets are $40 ($10 for students under age 25 with valid I.D.) and can be purchased from Ticketmaster either online via or by calling.

A South Florida JAZZ members-only reception in honor of Mr. Burton will follow the performance in the venue's foyer.

Vibraphonist Gary Burton's accomplishments are widely recognized by peers and garnering 22 nominations resulting in seven Grammy Awards. He has been voted Best Vibraphonist innumerably in the important trade polls. In 2016, he was awarded a richly-deserved Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts as a Jazz Master, an honor given only to luminaries who have advanced the art form. Much of his career was spent in academia at Boston's esteemed Berklee College of Music.

Makoto Ozone (o-zo-nee) played a classical solo concert in Carnegie Hall in 1983, the same year that he joined Gary's jazz band. He stayed in the US until 1989, returning to Japan where he continued performing works from the classical repertoire with major orchestras to rave reviews - a very rare acceptance of a jazz musician.

In 2013, in commemoration of the 30th anniversary of their debut together, Makoto toured with Gary in Japan for a month. They have now collaborated memorably for over 33 years. This performance for South Florida JAZZ represents the conclusion, as Gary Burton retires from the profession with a brief tour with his friend Makoto.

Funding for South Florida JAZZ is provided in part by grant from the Broward County Board of County Commissioners as recommended by the Broward Cultural Division.

Intimate Voices

Sunday, Mar 5, 2017 at 2:00 PM - English

It’s an afternoon of chamber music as the NWS Fellows perform works for strings and winds. Ernest Bloch infused his intense Piano Quintet with haunted agitation, believing that “art is the outlet of the mystical, emotional needs of the human spirit.” Woodwinds have all the fun in Bohuslav Martinů’s jovial Sextet that features a rapid flute dancing with the piano. Written at a time when his life was plagued with uncertainties, Jean Sibelius’ String Quartet is at times relentless, resigned, hopeful and heart wrenching.

Encounters: Brahms Vs. Waner: Clash of The Rimantics

Mar 17, 2017 & Mar 18, 2017 - at 7:30 PM - English

Classical music’s most beloved Romantics go head-to-head in an epic battle of melodies and harmonies. In one corner: Richard Wagner master musical storyteller with his grand scale, opulent scores and “bigger is better” mentality that permeated his operas. Female warriors swarm in a blaze of fury in his famous Ride of the Valkyries, while creeping chromaticism instantly sets the scene for his dramatic love story Tristan und Isolde. In the other corner: Johannes Brahms, the Romantic purist who struggled to escape Beethoven’s and Schumann’s classically-formed shadows. His bright and cheerful Second Symphony is perfectly reflective of the summertime idyll where it was written. In this face-off, everyone wins.

Encounters concerts span approximately one hour and feature engaging commentary and video from the stage, providing an understanding of the music and its historical context. After the performance, mix and mingle with the Fellows and other concertgoers at a complimentary cocktail reception.

Percussion consort: It is Time

Sunday, Mar 19, 2017 at 7:00 PM - English

Join the Percussion Fellows as they musically examine pain, torment and the persistence of time. Tan Dun reflects on a 13th-century Chinese drama of injustice in his Elegy: Snow in June. Spotlighting the incredible Joseph Johnson, Principal Cellist of the Toronto Symphony, this series of haunting variations “sings of pity and purity, beauty and darkness, and is a lament for victims everywhere.” Time is ticking away in Steven Mackey’s explosive percussion quartet, where each performer gets his own mini-concerto on everything from a rocking drum set to spellbinding steel drums. Inspired by Latin drumming to bouncing balls, Mackey seeks to “speed, slow, weep, celebrate and mourn our perceptions of time.”

Symphonic Giants

Mar 25, 2017 & Mar 26, 2017 - click here for time schedule - English

From the charming and cheerful melodies of Ludwig van Beethoven to the bold and brassy force of Dmitri Shostakovich, this ode to genius led by James Conlon, Music Director of the Los Angeles Opera, has it all. Despite being aware of his impending hearing loss, Beethoven infuses his Second Symphony with an unexpected liveliness and vigor, showing no signs of his internal torment. “This symphony is smiling throughout,” Berlioz once claimed of Beethoven’s most jovial symphony. Brazen patriotism is on full display in Shostakovich’s Twelfth Symphony, a vivid portrayal of the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution. This symphony-turned-tone poem comes alive with revolutionary songs, battle music and funeral marches.

This concert is sponsored in part by Ximena Caminos and Alan Faena, David Edelstein of Tristar Capital, Susan D. Kronick and Edward Manno Shumsky, and Liliya "Rose" Mukhamadyarova and William Strong.

Juanjo Mena, Chief Conductor of the BBC Philharmonic, makes his NWS debut in a sizzling collection of French and Spanish treasures for orchestra. Full of exotica, Manuel de Falla’sThe Three-Cornered Hat radiates passion through its fiery dances of love, jealousy and deception. Internationally acclaimed Argentinian pianist Ingrid Fliter dazzles in Camille Saint-Saëns’ virtuosic Second Piano Concerto, a masterpiece written in just 17 days. From dappling sunrise to a frenzied finale, Maurice Ravel takes you on the romantic odyssey of Daphnis and Chloe. While Ravel called his ballet a “vast musical fresco,” Stravinsky dubbed it “one of the most beautiful products in all of French music.”

Dimensions

Friday, Mar 31, 2017 at 7:30 PM - English

Hi. I’m Zach. I play clarinet in the New World Symphony. I’m 24. I want to change the experience of hearing a live symphony orchestra.

I believe all music creates meaning in our lives. Some of the music we play was written hundreds of years ago and some was written weeks ago, but it’s all about the same stuff: the joy, thrill, heartbreak, triumph, and loss that we all feel. But because of the formality of classical music, sometimes little room is left for intense connections to be shared among performers, music, and audience.

So, I’m designing a concert with my musician friends, and we’re breaking down barriers. The idea is to invite you, the audience, to take part in our inner world. We believe you can connect with our favorite music like we do. Come play a part in this experiment.

Enjoy the final chamber music concert of the season led by celebrated violinist Roberto González-Monjas. Equal parts virtuosic and amusing, Ludwig van Beethoven’s piano trio is a clever spin on a song from Wenzel Müller’s operetta The Sisters from Prague. Benjamin Britten explores the night both its stillness and its shadows in his ethereal Serenade featuring Metropolitan Opera tenor Paul Appleby and poetry by Alfred Lord Tennyson, William Blake, John Keats and more. At just 19, George Enescu masterfully composed one of the greatest string octets, blooming with late-Romantic harmonies, traces of folk music and a thrilling waltz finale.

Jazz Roots: From Ma Rainey to Miles Davis: A Blues Journey

Steve Miller, Henry Mancini Institute Big Band and special guests Jimmy Vaughan, Mike Flanigin and Shelly Berg.

When the music of Ma Rainey meets Miles Davis, expect the realms of blues and jazz to be out of this world. Originally developed for and performed at Jazz at Lincoln Center this past season, renowned blues-rock guitarist, multi platinum-selling singer/songwriter, 2016 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, and life-long jazz fan Steve Miller hosts a wide-ranging musical-and-beyond revue with special guests: Jimmy Vaughan on guitar, Mike Flanigin on the Hammond B3 organ and Jazz Roots artistic advisor Shelly Berg on piano. From his distinctively recognizable guitar and vocals, to engaging commentary, high-energy jamming, and much more, the evening promises surprises and high-level performances. Having learned his first chords at age five from his godfather Les Paul, how to play lead guitar from T-Bone Walker at age nine, and then working with the best Bluesmen in Chicago – Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Buddy Guy, and Paul Butterfield – Miller has incorporated his affinity for the blues into such hits as “The Joker,” “Fly Like An Eagle,” and “Jet Airliner.”

Stanley Jordan Trio

Saturday, Apr 8, 2017 at 8:00 PM - English

Stanley Jordan is the most gifted guitarists of his generation, renowned as the uncontested master of the spectacular two-handed tap technique that allows him to play rhythm and melody simultaneously. Perhaps more astounding is his ability to play guitar and piano simultaneously, switching the melody from one instrument to the other seamlessly. Stanley Jordan is, however, much more than a technical phenomenon. His interpretations from Bach to Bird to the Beatles - are true masterpieces. But the strength and depth of his multi-faceted music stem from his belief in the power of his art. For Stanley, making music has always been more than just entertainment; it is a genuine restorative journey, which will inspire and heal the soul, in the immediate and utterly therapeutic sense of the word.

James Blood Ulmer

Saturday, Apr 29, 2017 at 8:30 PM - English

Jazz and guitar legend James Blood Ulmer is among the most distinctive and influential free jazz electric guitarists to emerge in the past four decades. He has worked and recorded with Ornette Coleman, Art Blakey, Joe Henderson, Arthur Blythe, David Murray, Ronald Shannon Jackson, Vernon Reid and George Adams as bandleader and sideman. Ulmer is recognized as a central figure in the post-fusion movements of 1970s and 1980s jazz. Yet within this experimental framework, his guitar playing and songwriting incorporate blues, funk, and rock idioms, making it difficult to categorize his innovative musical forms.

"The missing link between Jimi Hendrix and Wes Montgomery on one hand, between P-Funk and Mississippi Fred McDowell on the other."
