SUMMERFEST

Edition 2013

ITALY - FLORIDA  - REPUBLIC OF PANAMA

Designed to connect the artistic and cultural traditions of the world with those of Florida, the Summefest is an annual festival that arrives this year to its 25th edition. Presented by the Symphony of the Americas and American Airlines, it is the longest musical event of Florida and one of the largest cultural exchange projects funded by the state of Florida. It concerns the fusion of European and American musicians musicians in the orchestra concerts in the country of European origin involved in the project, in Florida, in the United States, Central and South America.

It is with great pleasure that the I Musici Estensi Chamber Orchestra (IME) returns to Summerfest this year after the edition of 2006. On the occasion of the exhibition in 2013, the Symphony of the Americas has commissioned the Maestro Lorenzo Turchi-Floris (composer in residence) a new creation for string orchestra that will be performed throughout the festival.

With a range of well over 30 concerts, the festival is divided into a first part and a second part of the European American. In Europe, during June, in north Italy, with Artistic Director Maestro James Brooks-Bruzzese, some selected American musicians from the Symphony of the Americas will join the IME for rehersal, concerts and recording sessions. Subsequently in July-August it begins a tour of about 30 concerts in USA for important institutions, open-air concerts, educational concerts, gala concerts and outreach under special invitations from embassies and universities in Florida and Panama Countries.

OUR “MISSION” FOR SUMMERFEST 2013

By prestigious performances at the Broward Center of Florida, at the Theatre National de Panama, the prestigious American Universities, the tough schools of South America where children often listen in disbelief symphonic music for the first time. Here begins our "mission". Thousands of students take music education programs desired by governments, through music, help children to develop alternative plans to those who would lead them in the streets, to physical and moral poverty.
