The Beatles Return to Miami

IMG_4230

Well, not quite. But on an evening with a major NASCAR race and Miami Heat game, it was nice to see a sold-out crowd at the Arsht Center for the Miami Symphony Orchestra (MISO). Energetic Conductor Eduardo Marturet unveiled the world premiere of several major Beatles-inspired commissions, based on the 50-year anniversary of the iconic group’s arrival in Miami. It was a brilliant choice, the concert was wonderful. MISO also presented special appearances by former American Idol Ruben Studdard and 13-year-old phenom-vocalist Havan Star, along with The David Anderson (choral) Ensemble.  Featured artists on violin and piano rounded out the two-hour program.   MISO had a checkered track-record some years back, but has re-built the orchestra with an eye towards a very public-friendly repertoire, excellent musicians and well-rounded selections.  IMG_4231
