Miami Children’s Chorus in Concert with the American Boychoir
Coral Gables, FL – February 8, 2017 – Sun., March 5th, 4:00PM at All Souls’ Episcopal Church –
4025 Pine Tree DR in Miami Beach – the Miami Children’s Chorus presents Cantare – with Guest
Artist the American Boychoir. Your soul will be uplifted by the hope, majesty and power of these
young voices that have traveled the globe. Their visit last year inspired a MCC member to go to their
summer camp and ultimately join them last Fall in Princeton, NJ at the American Boychoir School.
The American Boychoir has long been recognized as one of the finest musical ensembles in
the country. Under the leadership of Fernando Malvar-Ruiz, Litton-Lodal Artistic Director, the
American Boychoir has dazzled audiences with its unique blend of musical sophistication, spirited
presentation, and ensemble virtuosity. The Boychoir performs regularly with world-class orchestras,
including the New York Philharmonic, The Philadelphia Orchestra, and the Boston Symphony
Orchestra, and is often featured with such illustrious conductors as James Levine, Charles Dutoit, and
Alan Gilbert. The American Boychoir is frequently invited to join internationally-renowned artists on
stage, and the list of collaborators reflects the extraordinary range of the ensemble: from great
classical artists such as Jessye Norman and Frederica von Stade to jazz legend Wynton Marsalis and
pop icons Beyoncé and Sir Paul McCartney.

The choir's young soloists are also in high demand and have joined forces with the Baltimore
Symphony Orchestra, The Cleveland Orchestra, and Spoleto Festival USA, to name a few. As an
icon of American musical excellence, the Boychoir has been invited to sing for every sitting U.S.
President since John F. Kennedy. Touring frequently at home and abroad as preeminent
ambassadors, the American Boychoir spreads messages of beauty and hope through outstanding
musical achievement.

The Miami Children’s Chorus is a not-for-profit community arts organization specializing in
choral music education and performance for children age 8-18 in Miami-Dade County. In three levels
of ensemble – beginning, intermediate and advanced – MCC provides weekly rehearsals where
children practice the life-long skills of commitment, respect for self and others, and the rewards of a
dedicated effort while learning the skills and techniques necessary for healthy vocal production,
musicianship and artistry.
MCC choristers have won acclaim from critics and earned national recognition as an
exemplary children's choir. MCC has bowed twice with the renowned Cleveland Orchestra. First in
2012 in Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 3 then in 2015 in Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana. They
appeared twice on the Mainly Mozart Festival most recently in 2015 in Franz Lizst’s Dante
Symphony, held at the Arsht Center. MCC has performed with PBS favorites Ethan Bortnick and
André Rieu, and at the 44th NFL Super Bowl with Queen Latifah for the pre-game show at Sun Life
Stadium in 2010.


In the fall of 2006, MCC performed for the opening of the Adrienne Arsht Center for the
Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County. They returned there this season to help the Arsht Center
celebrate its 10th Anniversary. MCC performance credits include three appearances at Festival
Miami (FL), Carnegie Hall (NY); the Cardiff Proms Summer Concert Series (Wales, UK); the
Israel Chamber Orchestra and – by invitation – in the Great Hall of The Mozarteum for the 2015
Cantus MM Festival in Salzburg. The Miami Children’s Chorus has presented concerts in Austria,
Argentina, Brazil, Italy, the Czech Republic and South Africa in addition to appearances in various
cities in the United States.

This project of the Miami Children’s Chorus is supported, in part, by the Miami-Dade
County Department of Cultural Affairs and the Cultural Affairs Council, the Miami-Dade County
Mayor and Board of County Commissioners; the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of
Cultural Affairs and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture; the City of Miami Beach, Cultural

Gary Nader is pleased to present a Fernando Botero Sculpture Exhibit at the Gary Nader Art Centre in Wynwood from Feb. 9 through April 9. The exhibit was curated by Nader to showcase the modern master’s significant contributions to the modern and contemporary art world.


Fernando Botero was born in Medellin, Colombia in 1932. His signature style portrays people and figures in large, exaggerated volume, which can represent political criticism or humor, depending on the piece. He is considered the most recognized and quoted living artist from Latin America. In 1960, Botero took up residence in New York and, in the same year, won the Guggenheim National Prize for Colombia.


Botero’s work has been featured in several solo and group exhibitions at Gary Nader’s galleries. Botero has exhibited his work at the Museum of Modern Art in Copenhagen, the Maillol Museum in Paris, the Palazzo Benezia in Rome, the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, and the National Museum in Bogotá, among others. Botero lives and works in Paris, Monte Carlo, Pietrasanta, and New York.
