Symphony of the Americas presents

25th Anniversary Summerfest  2016

Soloists and Musicians of the 25 Years of Summerfest

joined by musicians of the SYMPHONY of the AMERICAS

Fort Lauderdale’s own Symphony of the Americas will present its 25th Anniversary summer music festival, Summerfest, for one month of performances throughout Florida and the Americas from July 9 – August 10 .  Activities include concerts, master classes, and educational outreach, taking the masterful sounds of this great ensemble to audiences in corners of the world who have never before experienced the exhilaration of live orchestral performance. 

This festival will highlight the ‘Best of the Best”. The Summerfest Chamber Orchestra will feature musicians and soloists who have participated in this Festival over the past 25 years, including orchestras such as the Arpeggione Chamber Orchestra of Austria, the Mission Chamber Orchestra of Rome, Hungarian Virtuosi, Italy’s I Musici and more, representing more than 10 different countries - performing several styles of classical and popular music for strings, all joined in cultural exchange by principal musicians of our own Symphony of the Americas.

The Symphony of the Americas is a Broward County designated Major Cultural Institution and Broward Center for the Performing Arts is its performance home.

Under the baton of Symphony Artistic Director, Maestro James Brooks-Bruzzese, orchestral concerts feature the music of Vivaldi, Mozart, Bloch, Fuchs, Piazzolla tangos, a commissioned piece by Italian composer Lorenzo Turchi-Floris, a special arrangement of Latin favorites by Latin Grammy Award winning composer Eduardo Magallanes of Mexico, and more. Other soloists will include Summerfest’s Concertmaster Orlando Forte of Cuba;  violinist Svetlana Forte; Symphony of the Americas principal flutist, Marilyn Maingart and Georgian violinist Sandro Tigishvili.

In honor of the 25th Anniversary, this Summerfest features two performances of entirely different musical repertoire in a special 2-CONCERT SUNDAY SERIES SUBSCRIPTION:  July 17 at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, and August 7 at the FAU Theater in Boca Raton, beginning at just $ 30 per person for the Series. Both performances begin at 6 pm.

Summerfest is sponsored in part by Riverside Hotel, AVIS, Wells Fargo, Helen Ingham Foundation, Broward Cultural Council & Board of County Commissioners, Funding Arts Broward, Madelyn Savarick Trust, Il Circolo Italian Cultural Society, Universal Travel and WLRN.
