Manuel María Ponce Cuéllar (1882-1948) was a Mexican composer active in the 20th century. His work as a composer, music educator and scholar of Mexican music connected the concert scene with a mostly forgotten tradition of popular song and Mexican folklore. Many of his compositions are strongly influenced by the harmonies and form of traditional songs.

Paul Schoenfield (1947- ) “The idea to compose Café Music first came to me in 1985 after sitting in one night for the pianist at Murray’s Restaurant in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Murray’s employs a house trio which plays entertaining dinner music in a wide variety of styles. My intention was to write a kind of high-class dinner music — music which could be played at a restaurant, but might also (just barely) find its way into a concert hall. The work draws on many of the types of music played by the trio at Murray’s. For example, early 20th century American, Viennese, light classical, gypsy, and Broadway styles are all represented. A paraphrase of a beautiful Chassidic melody is incorporated in the second movement. Café Music was commissioned by the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra (SPCO) and received its premiere during a SPCO chamber concert in January 1987.” (Art of the States).

Jose Luis Hernandez earned his Bachelor’s degree from the University of Florida-New World School of the Arts, studying composition with Susan Epstein Garcia, and is currently working on his Master’s degree at Berklee College of Music, Boston. As a composer and pianist, Mr. Hernandez has received numerous recognitions for his works such as: 1st prize at the Robert Avalon International Composition Competition for Composers-Emerging Artist division (Houston, 2020); two times 1st prize at the Jane Pyle Composition Competition at Miami Dade College (Miami, 2015 and 2016); and 3rd prize-Level 5 at the Silvia Eisenstein National Piano Competition at EEMMAL (Caracas, 2011).

Thriller, the Pepsi fire, drug wars, and a white family moving into a Black neighborhood: It’s 1984 and we are in Miami Dade County’s Opa-Locka and life is about to get a whole lot more confusing for a group of kids who want to be the ‘King of Pop.’ Defacing Michael Jackson is about growing up, hero worship, and how we see ourselves.

Why Defacing Michael Jackson?
Defacing Michael Jackson will be our fourth world premiere with Aurin Squire. He is not only a Miami native who is an extremely sought after screenwriter and playwright, he is a flagship for Miami New Drama and an essential part of our DNA. This play is all about Miami in Aurin’s native Opa Locka and blends a coming of age story and sexual discovery with a backdrop of social and racial unrest. It is deeply moving, spectacular with masterful storytelling. We are extremely proud to be doing the world premiere of this play and continue our commitment to Aurin as an artist.

My Fair Lady

Saturday, Apr 1, 2023 various times - English

From Lincoln Center Theater, which brought you The King & I and South Pacific, comes “a sumptuous new production of the most perfect musical of all time” (Entertainment Weekly), Lerner & Loewe’s MY FAIR LADY. Director Bartlett Sher’s glowing production is “thrilling, glorious and better than it ever was” (The New York Times). “Every so often, a revival comes along that reminds you how indispensable great theater can be” (NY1).

Boasting such classic songs as “I Could Have Danced All Night,” “The Rain in Spain,” “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly” and “On the Street Where You Live,” MY FAIR LADY tells the story of Eliza Doolittle, a young Cockney flower seller, and Henry Higgins, a linguistics professor who is determined to transform her into his idea of a “proper lady.” But who is really being transformed?

Broadway on Biscayne – “I Could Have Danced All Night” offers audiences the opportunity to learn how to waltz, just as Eliza Doolittle did. The class will be led by Tone Jacobsen, a former national ballroom dance champion of Norway.

Admission is free with a ticket to the performance of My Fair Lady on Tuesday, March 28, 2023.

The dance workshop will take place from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. on the Thomson Plaza for the Arts. Limited spaces are available.

Saturday, Apr 1, 2023 various times - English

The Frost Art Museum is home to one of the largest collections of Haitian paintings from the 1980’s and 1990’s in the United States. This exhibition and accompanying catalog are a part of the museum’s ongoing efforts to make its collection accessible through research and digitization. A group of dynamic scholars in the area of Haitian art, helped develop the exhibition’s focus around the artists’ varied use of space.

The exhibition also includes contemporary Haitian American artists, Vanessa Charlot, Mark Delmont, Edouard Duval-Carrié, Mark Fleuridor, Madjeen Isaac, Abigail Lucien, and Asser Saint-Val as well as paintings from the collection by Gerard Fortuné, Alexandre Gregoire, Maxan Jean-Louis, Eddy Myrthil, and Fritzner Obner, among others.

Everything, Earth and Sky highlights a theme prevalent in Haitian art, the depiction of space. From schools, communal plazas, and government buildings to Haiti’s fauna and the ever-present ocean, these works depict different interpretations of physical space and the use of public places. Some works clearly relate contemporary political challenges in Haiti and others portray the rich and varied iconography of Vodou.

This exhibition has been made possible with generous support from the Green Family Foundation, Island TV, PNC Bank, and Comprehensive Medical Aesthetics.
