Performances in Delray Beach, Key West and Fort Lauderdale
January 15, 17 and 18
The South Florida Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of conductor and music director Sebrina Maria Alfonso, presents the second of four shows in the 2014-15 Masterworks Concert Series. This series of concerts is called “Continuous Crescendo” and will be presented in three South Florida cities this month.
The first concert date will be Thursday, January 15 at 7 p.m. at the Delray Beach Center for the Arts (51 N. Swinton Avenue). The Orchestra then travels to Key West for a 7 p.m. concert date at the Tennessee Williams Theatre (5901 College Road) on Saturday, January 17. Finally, the Orchestra performs at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts (201 SW 5th Avenue) in Fort Lauderdale at 7 p.m. on Sunday, January 18.
There will be a pre-concert talk at all three concert dates: Ian Fraser will be speaking in Delray Beach and Fort Lauderdale and Edward Pitts will be speaking in Key West. Those talks will start 15 minutes before each show.
“Continuous Crescendo” begins with the Orchestra’s performance of “Bolero” by Maurice Ravel. Afterwards, Christopher Taylor, a pianist who has performed with the National Symphony Orchestra and the New York Philharmonic, will play the “Piano Concerto” by Samuel Barber. He will also play “Pictures at an Exhibition,” a suite in ten movements composed by the Russian composer Modest Mussorgsky.
