The New World Symphony presents “Orchestra Concert: Beethoven’s Seventh.” Experience Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony as it transforms sorrow into joy. 7:30 p.m.

Come be spellbound by musical storytelling led by famed international conductor Roberto Abbado. Experience Beethoven’s dramatic Seventh Symphony in person as it transforms sorrow into joy. Forever a classical music favorite, it has found fame in pop culture from Seinfeld to The King’s Speech. Ralph Vaughan Williams drew upon his studies with Maurice Ravel in setting A.E. Housman’s lovelorn poems, sung here by acclaimed American lyric tenor Matthew Polenzani, who stops in Miami for these two evenings amidst a season of engagements at the Lyric Opera of Chicago, Teatro Massimo di Palermo, two roles at The Metropolitan Opera and one at the San Francisco Opera, where the San Francisco Chronicle hails as “a wonderfully fresh and robust voice, with clarion top notes and a gift for sweet phrasing.” Maurice Maeterlinck’s Pelléas and Mélisande cast a spell on many composers, and Gabriel Faure’s masterpiece is so poignant it was played at his own funeral.
