Symphony of the Americas presents Summerfest 2017

Through Sun 13 Aug, 2017

Broward’s longest running Summerfest is back, presenting its 26th annual festival, for one month of performances throughout Florida and the Americas. Nourish your artistic soul with the Symphony of the Americas, a Broward County designated Major Cultural Institution, celebrating its 30th Anniversary this season.  A month of concerts throughout Florida and the Americas beginning July 14 takes the masterful sounds of the Summerfest Chamber Orchestra to audiences in corners of the world who have never before experienced the exhilaration of live orchestral performance.

Summerfest traditionally features musicians and soloists from acclaimed orchestras throughout Europe, including Gewandhaus Orchester of Germany, Austria’s Arpeggione Chamber Orchestra, Mission Chamber Orchestra of Rome, Orchestra Symphonique du Mont Blanc (France), Hungarian Virtuosi, and others, performing several styles of classical and popular music for strings, all joined in a cultural exchange by principal musicians of our own Symphony of the Americas. Presented in association with Europe’s Musicfor, the festival aligns with their international mission of promoting music, donating musical instruments and their time to work with young students. Overall, more than 10 different countries are represented by musicians on stage at Summerfest concerts.

Summerfest outreach includes a July week of performances for residents and students of Panama in partnership with the US Embassy, Bern Resorts, Rotary Clubs and Instituto Nacional de Cultura.

Under the baton of Artistic Director, Maestro James Brooks-Bruzzese, orchestral concerts feature the music of Vivaldi, Mendelssohn, Elgar, Vaughn Williams, Piazzolla, Moncayo, Ravel’s Bolero, and more. Included also is a commissioned composition by Italian composer Lorenzo Turchi-Floris, Soloists are acclaimed Swiss guitarist, Alessio Nebiolo, violinist Valentin Mansurov of Russia, and cellist Aziz Sapaev of Uzbekistan

Summerfest features two performances of varied musical repertoire in a special 2-CONCERT SATURDAY SERIES SUBSCRIPTION:  July 22 at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, and August 5 at the FAU Theater in Boca Raton, both at 7 pm, beginning at just $30 per person for the Series.
