Led by acclaimed conductor Eduardo Marturet, The Miami Symphony Orchestra coddles cochleae with world premieres and classic orchestral works in its 23rd season. Rather than punt a tuba into the crowd to kick off the year, the symphony will present a grand-season-opening concert featuring works by Beethoven, Tchiakovsky, and its principal trumpeter, Sam Hyken. Inspired by the Fab Four, Hyken created The Beatles Guide to the Orchestra, weaving the band’s hits with the orchestra’s rich sonic textures. Beethoven’s grand Fifth Symphony tugs heartstrings with minor-key melodies, and Juilliard-trained guest soloist Stewart Goodyear tickles the ivories while shouting The Rime of the Ancient Mariner in its entirety during Tchaikovsky’s dramatic Piano Concerto no. 1.
In addition to surprising travelers with a free concert at Miami International Airport in May, the orchestra spreads enthusiasm for classical music by offering discounted tickets to students and seniors. Its 80 musicians also spend time in local grade schools, teaching future audiences about orchestral instruments and how to blow bubbles out of a clarinet.
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.
