When dusk falls, the opening credits roll at Randall Drive-In Theatre. Families and family pets pull into parking spots, rain or shine, to enjoy double or triple features of current blockbusters. The films play Friday through Sunday, and a single ticket, which is free for kids younger than 5, grants patrons admission to the entire double or triple feature.
As the Miami Herald recently reported, when Boston String Quartet violinist Angel Valchinov met with a group of young orchestra students, he had one major piece of advice: "When you solo, play loud. Like, break some strings, OK?" His bold attitude infuses the work of the Quartet, which has reached far beyond the boundaries of the standard string repertoire to bring together the jazz-saturated Turtle Island Quartet, Glee vocalist Jeanette Olsson, Emmy-winning film composer Lanny Meyers, and the 12-nation musical melting pot of the Xibus World Orchestra on a single stage.
