A musically inspired “American in Paris”
Internationally recognized composers Copland, Ravel, and Reynaldo Hahn are just some of the composers who were influenced by Paris. To show off this great Parisian musical influence, South Florida Symphonic Orchestra presents two evenings of "American in Paris" on June 16 and 19, 2013 in Ft. Lauderdale and then Key West.
On these dates, South Florida Symphonic Orchestra* will be presenting a chamber music series by the Blue Door Spring Quartet.
*Created by Maestra Sebrina Maria Alphonso in 1997, the South Florida Symphonic Orchestra is a non-profit organization dedicated to music education.
Over the years, the organization has held free concerts that have reached over 20,000 Kindergarten and 5th graders due to the Symphony in the Schools Program, done via the “Do It for M.E.” (Music Education) Fund, which aids students in the understanding of math, reading and sciences, etc., by musical means.
The cost to concert goers at the Josephine & Leiser Opera Center will be $30; for the Tennessee Williams Theatre, the concert will be $25 for general seating and $35 for reserved seating.
Come and see Whitney LaGrange and Benjamin Breen on the violin, Amy Kimball on the viola, and Arthur Cook on the cello.
