SUMMERFEST

Edition 2016

FLORIDA  - REPUBLIC OF PANAMA

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

This festival will highlight the "Best of the Best”. The Summerfest Chamber Orchestra will be composed by musicians and soloists who have participated in the festival over the past 25 years, including orchestras such as the Arpeggione Chamber Orchestra (Austria), the Mission Chamber Orchestra (Italy), Hungarian Virtuosi (Hungary) , I Musici Estensi (Italy) and more. Representing more than 10 different countries, all joined in cultural exchange by principal musicians of the Symphony of the Americas, in the performance of several styles of classical and popular music for strings,

Under the baton of Symphony Artistic Director, Maestro James Brooks-Bruzzese, orchestral concerts feature the music of Vivaldi, Mozart, Bloch, Fuchs, Piazzolla, a commissioned piece by Italian composer Lorenzo Turchi-Floris (composer in residence), a special arrangement of Latin music by Grammy Award winning Mexican composer Eduardo Magallanes, and more. Musicfor members and other soloists will include Summerfest’s Concertmaster Orlando Forte (Cuba), violinist Svetlana Forte (Ukraine), Symphony of the Americas principal flutist Marilyn Maingart (USA) and the Georgian violinist Sandro Tigishvili, who will be featured soloist in an American premiere: an arrangement for strings of the Concertino by Georgian composer Otar Taktakishvili, that the Symphony of the Americas commissioned Tigishvili to write and premiere for the Summerfest 25th anniversary.

OUR “MISSION” FOR SUMMERFEST 2016

In panama, 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.
