Musicians from the Youth Orchestra of Bahia
This year, the Brasil Classical Series and The Miami Symphony Orchestra showcase talented musicians of the Youth Orchestra of Bahia. Led by conductor Eduardo Marturet and featuring critically-acclaimed Brazilian pianist Simone Leitão, the concert features a vibrant selection of works by Heitor Villa-Lobos, Zequinha de Abreu, Francisco Mignone, Lorenzo Fernandez, Prokoviev, and Gottschalk, among others. This unique fusion of Brazilian-inspired rhythms and melodies also includes the North American premiere of "Real and Imaginary Dances Suite" (Suite de Danças Reais e Imaginarias) by Grammy-nominated composer and instrumentalist, Andre Mehmari. A native of Rio de Janeiro, Mehmari's broad range of compositions and recordings have been praised by audiences and critics worldwide.
Musical instruments will be acquired with the ticket proceeds from this performance, which will be donated to NEOJIBA, (The State Youth and Children’s Orchestras Centers of Bahia), one of Brazil's leading youth orchestra programs.
This Brasil Classical Series performance is sponsored by Odebrecht, American Airlines and counts with additional support from Safra National Bank of New York, Consulate General of Brazil in Miami, The Brazilian-American Chamber of Commerce of Florida, The Rhythm Foundation, Centro Cultural Brasil-USA, Acontece Magazine and AcheiUSA Newspaper.
