Tchaikovsky and Bruch - Fort Lauderdale

Wednesday, Apr 17, 2024 from 7:30 PM to 9:30 PM - English

Become enraptured in the drama of Tchaikovsky and the sprightly Highland-inspired melodies of Bruch as South Florida Symphony Orchestra (SFSO) presents an exuberant April Masterworks finale to a triumphant season!

Show more >>

Led by Sebrina Maria Alfonso, SFSO will perform Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 5 in E minor, Op. 64and Bruch's Scottish Fantasy in E-flat major, Op. 46featuring Huifang Chen,SFSO's associated conductor and concertmaster,on violin, at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 17, at The Parker in Fort Lauderdale (707 NE 8th Street).

A pre-concert chat with Dr. Alan Mason illuminating the works and composers will take place 30 minutes prior to the concert. A sense of deep longing underscores Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's (1840 - 1893) Symphony No. 5.in E minor, Op. 64. Composed in 1888, the work takes audiences on a storied journey inspired by "Fate"- beginning with deep gloomy chords that evolve into musical transitional canter culminating in an exhilarating joyful coda of triumph as we rejoice in the power of the human spirit. Today, during a quite different kind of global struggle, Symphony No. 5 invites us to rebel against despair. German composer Max Bruch's (1838 - 1920) spirited Scottish Fantasy in E-flat major, Op. 46 is steeped in the sounds of the Highlands, even though Bruch had not yet visited Scotland when he wrote the acclaimed piece. A four-movement tribute to traditional folk melodies, it opens with notes built upon "Through the Wood Laddie."

This tune also appears at the end of the second and fourth movements. The second movement is built around "The Dusty Miller," the third on "I'm A' Doun for Lack O' Johnnie," and the fourth movement includes a sprightly arrangement of "Hey Tuttie Tatie," from the patriotic anthem "Scots Wha Hae" (with lyrics by Robert Burns). Following its highly acclaimed 25th anniversary season, including sold-out shows and a celebrated performance accompanying award-winning alt-rock indie vocalist Natalie Merchant, South Florida's largest symphonic orchestra is continuing its musical journey of excellence inspiring audiences of all ages.

In addition to its sold-out season masterworks performances, Maestra Alfonso will be conducting SFSO in an upcoming live performance of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone In Concert on April 5 and 6 and Classical Mystery Tour: A Symphonic Tribute to The Beatles on May 11, both at Broward Center for the Performing Arts (separately ticketed events). Single tickets for this Masterworks program begin at $15 for the Parker in Fort Lauderdale.

The Forgotten Founding Fathers takes the audience on a captivating, theatrical and hip-hop journey that explores American history through the lens of African American, Latino and Indigenous heroes during some of the country's most pivotal times, including the American Revolutionary War, Civil War and Reconstruction.

The family-friendly show spotlights heroes such as Prince Whipple, Wentworth Cheswell, Colonel Ty Cornelius, Sojourner Truth, Bernardo de Galvez and Phillis Wheatley. Unlike other historical education that highlights the pain and suffering of African Americans, Latino and Indigenous peoples, The Forgotten Founding Fathers aims to teach the contributions of these communities to the country. In addition to the public performances that week, the Arsht Center has arranged for Karl Jenkins and the cast to visit Miami-Dade County public high schools for a series of workshops designed to engage students in a creative exploration of history through songwriting, acting and discussions of historical relevance and philosophy. Through interactive activities and discussions, students will gain a deeper understanding of the historical context and philosophical ideas that shaped the Founding Fathers' legacy. Student performances at the Arsht Center will take place on April 18-19.

SJO presents: 1st Fridays Live Jazz at The Lyric

Friday, May 3, 2024 from 7:30 PM to 10:00 PM - English

The Yvette Norwood Quartet will be led by the wonderful multi-talented Vocalist, and the group will feature very special guest, Grammy-award winning Jazz violinist, Maestro Federico Britos.

Show more >>

Yvette Norwood-Tiger is an Award-winning jazz vocalist, international touring artist, songwriter, Recording Academy voting member, and founder/director of the Palm Beach International Jazz Festival (www.pbijf.org) A Detroit, Michigan native who hails from a family of musicians, Yvette performs with vocally clean and pure interpretations, while emphasizing intonation and storytelling. Her vocal styling and textures are often compared to that of Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday. In addition to jazz standards, her repertoire includes the Great American Songbook, bebop, and Latin jazz (and performing jazz songs in other languages). In addition to her original jazz compositions, her recordings feature music from great composers such as Cole Porter, Duke Ellington, the Gershwins, John Coltrane, Dexter Gordon, and others. Yvette's CD, LOVE IS, stayed on JAZZWEEK'S charts for over sixteen weeks. Yvette's newest CD, AUTUMN SUN, is a grand tribute to the forefathers of bebop, including Wayne Shorter, Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonious Monk, and others.

Federico Britos There is no greater proof of the universality of jazz and classical music than that which embodies the career and life work of Federico Britos. A titan of the violin, he is as equally adept within the world of jazz as he is in the classical realm, and has built a solid reputation throughout the Southern Hemisphere of the Americas. Born in Montevideo, Uruguay, Federico began playing violin at age five. When he was eleven years old, the Rumanian violinist George Boulanger premiered one of Federicos' musical pieces "Capricho Uruguayo". His talent was obvious to many mature musicians who all agreed that he was a gifted musician, capable of playing classical and jazz as well.

Sr. Britos has served as principal chair, soloist, and Concertmaster with some of the great symphony orchestras of Uruguay, Venezuela, Peru, Cuba, and United States (Miami). Federico has toured extensively throughout the Americas and Europe performing with some of Latin America's greatest musicians, such as Astor Piazzolla, Horacio Salgan, Bola de Nieve, Israel Lopez "Cachao", Joao Gilberto, Dorival Caimi, Vinicio de Moraes; He would also share his outstanding talent with Dizzy Gillespie, Dexter Gordon, Duke Ellington, Nat King Cole, Woody Herman, Benny Goodman, Bucky Pizzarelli, Charlie Haden, Ken Peplowski, Eddie Higgins and Charlie Byrd. He has toured Europe with the Hot Club USA and Franck Vignola.

As a composer, Federico has written and recorded many works for orchestra, chamber ensemble, ballet and dance, and has composed music for films, TV and theater. He has performed at many Jazz Festivals: Montreux; San Francisco; Int'l. Jazz Fest in Espoo, Finland; Bern and Basile (Switzerland); North Carolina; New Bern Jazz Fest; Miami Jazz; Puerto Rico Jazz Fest; Summit Jazz (Denver, Colorado); A Celebration of American Fiddle Music (Troy, NY); Django Reinhardt Festival at Birdland Jazz Club in NYC; Miami Beach World Music Fest, and played as special guest in The Grappelli Legacy at Carnegie Hall.

Maestro Britos performed in the Concert Hall of Kennedy Center in Washington in a program called "AMERICANOS", along with Cachao, Nestor Torres, Jose Feliciano, Gloria Estefan and Paquito D'Rivera, produced by James Edward Olmos. He recorded with Cachao on the Grammy award-winner, and "Cuba Linda" was also nominated for the Grammy. He recorded with bassist Charlie Haden, touring with Haden, promoting his CD "Nocturne", Grammy awarded this year. Federico's "Jazz-Ta" was recorded under the label Mini-Records "The First Danzon" with the group "Danzon by Six". Both productions were recorded under the superb musical direction of Federico Britos.
