The Miami Symphony Orchestra heats up two concert halls with a fusion of Brazilian rhythms and melodies. Continent-hopping maestro Eduardo Marturet leads the corps of 80 professional musicians, joined for these performances by acclaimed Brazilian pianist Simone Leitão. Leitão lends her fiery ivory style and flexibility gained from a wide-ranging repertoire to original compositions by fellow countryman and Latin Grammy–nominated André Mehmari, whose Real and Imaginary Dances Suite will make its North American premiere after a months-long hike through the Andes. Young members of the internationally renowned Youth Orchestra of Bahia will also join Miami’s seasoned pros, enlivening the concert with the drive and passion that has taken them to performances with some of the prime luminaries of the international classical scene.
The Miami Symphony Orchestra
Since 1989, The Miami Symphony Orchestra has mimicked Miami’s cultural diversity with concerts and events that act as a melting pot of musical influences. Music director Eduardo Marturet, a Venezuelan composer and conductor, helms many of the concerts, encouraging the musicians to unleash their inner Beethovens or Bachs—former members of the ’80s hair-metal band Skid Row.
