summerfest 2017

Christmas Cheer from Symphony usual the Symphony of the Americas put a smile on everyone's face and a warm glow in every heart with their annual Christmas concert in Ft. Lauderdale.

Star of the show, under the usual masterful baton of James Brooks-Bruzzese (shown here in his festive red vest and bow tie) was guest soloist Frank Loconto. He was the lead singer with The Lane Brothers from 1957-1979, a group best known for the 1958 recording Boppin' In A Sack (you can hear it on YouTube). The title refers to a 'sack dress' that was popular at the time; it looked like a sack because it did not taper in at the waist. Not exactly high fashion, but it made for a groovy song!

Symphony Of The Americas Pays Tribute To Italian And Hispanic Heritage In Rousing Season Opening

alejandro dragoItalian and Hispanic Heritage Month formed the celebratory theme of the Symphony of the Americas' rousing season opener at the Broward Center's Amaturo Theater on Tuesday night. The music of Italian opera master Giacomo Puccini was featured on the program's first half. With the exception of the Intermezzo from Manon Lescaut, this was not the familiar Puccini of La Boheme, Tosca, Madama Butterfly or Turandot but the music of a young composer finding his way into the Italian musico-dramatic tradition..

Roberto Cani and Symphony Of The Americas in Superb Performances of Scores from Romanticism's Golden Age

Roberto Cani Violin

Italian violinist Roberto Cani joined the Symphony of the Americas on Tuesday night for a program of mostly late 19th century music from the golden age of artistic romanticism.

Cani, who has played with the Ft. Lauderdale based ensemble several times in past seasons, was a late replacement for Florin Ionescu-Galati who was unable to obtain a visa to travel to the United States for the concert. Cani was nothing short of sensational. From the moment he played the violin's initial entrance in Henryk Wieniawski's Violin Concerto No. 2 in D minor, Cani's tonal gleam and sterling technique had the audience at the Broward Center's Amaturo Theater on the edge of their seats.
