Miami Music Festival from Around the World
- Two Pianos & Percussion (October 24 at 8 p.m.): Four musicians dive headlong into Bartok’s Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion, which challenges the percussionists to play seven instruments between them and the pianists to play just the one—but really, really well. This small collective will also put a new spin on Piazzolla’s avant-garde tangos.
- One Pulse – Many Beats (October 25 at 7:30 p.m.): Venus Rising, a multiethnic women’s drum and dance ensemble, celebrates diversity through an exploration of traditional music from Africa, the Caribbean, Brazil and the Middle East. Instruments include djembes, frame drums, krins, agogo bells, and the ensemble’s own feet.
- Women in Opera (October 26 at 3 p.m.): Some of the most complex characters in opera have one thing in common: two X chromosomes. Six singers join forces to bring to life some of the repertoire’s most remarkable female roles through arias, trios, and duets.
- Monster Piano Explosion (October 26 at 6 p.m.): The only things that explodes in this concert are the minds of those in the audience. More than 20 pianists take the stage to fill the Wertheim Performing Arts Center with waves of chords and harmony during duets, duels, and solos.
Miami World Music Festival
Not even a space shuttle could orbit the planet of sound that is the Miami World Music Festival. Supported by South FL Friends of Classical Music and the Miami-Dade Cultural Affairs, the annual celebration of diversity summons acclaimed artists from across the globe, culling musicians from far-reaching locales such as Russia, Spain, Africa, and Germany. The sounds of these countries range from traditional chamber music to raga, drum ensembles, and more.
