The Symphony of the Americas 30th Anniversary season celebration continues with Summerfest 2018 in Pembroke Pines.  This acclaimed summer music festival presents one month of performances throughout Florida and the Americas. The City of Pembroke Pines performance will be held on August 9, 2018 at the Susan B. Katz Theater of the Performing Arts at the River of Grass ArtsPark, located at 17195 Sheridan, at 7 p.m.  Refreshing cool waters and the Oscar winning movie Shape of Water are all inspirations for this year’s Symphony of the Americas annual Summerfest – The Shape of Music.

Summerfest traditionally features musicians and soloists from acclaimed orchestras throughout Europe, including Mission Chamber Orchestra of Rome, the Hungarian Virtuosi,  Orchestra Symphonique du Mont Blanc (France), 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 work with young students. Overall, more than 10 different countries are represented on stage at Summerfest concerts.

The Artistic Director is Maestro James Brooks-Bruzzese; the music is of Bach, Handel,  Saint-Saens, Mozart, Delibes, Ginastera and the legendary Argentinian, Carlos Gardel.  Included also is a commissioned composition by Italian composer in residence, Lorenzo Turchi-Floris, Soloists are the festival’s Concertmaster, Orlando Forte of Cuba, the Symphony of the Americas Principal Oboe, Marco Key-Navarrete and acclaimed organist Tim Brumfield, among others.
