Classical Music Concerts, Recitals and Events

TICKETS:  Admission is by requested donation of $15 at the door; no reservations taken

RECEPTION: Everyone is invited to a "meet the musicians" reception following the concert

PARKING:  Since we have no parking lot, parking at Bethesda-by-the-Sea is a challenge!  Although the police often ignore it when people park on South County Road for Sunday morning services, it is always illegal to park there, and you may receive a ticket.  Whenever Barton Avenue (the street along the south side of the church) is posted as one-way — which it will be for all our concerts and services — you may park on either side of that street (facing west).  You may also park in the "residential parking only" section of Barton Avenue, from South County Road west to Central Avenue.  If Via Bethesda (the small road between The Breaker's golf course and the church) has room, you may park there according to the directions posted on various signs.  Other than that, you must seek parking spaces on the local side streets.  Here is a link to a map of our local streets:



Take a step back in time to the early days of the City Beautiful, the Jazz Age of the 20’s and 30’s and the birth of the Biltmore Hotel, as Orchestra Miami presents this season’s “Discover Miami Through Music” concert on Sunday, April 26, at 4:00 pm at the Biltmore Hotel, 1200 Anastasia Avenue, Coral Gables, 33134. The concert, from one of South Florida’s leading symphonic musical ensembles, will take the audience back in time to the era of fox-trots and tea dances as the orchestra performs classical music which was inspired by jazz, as well as music which may have been performed during the heyday of the Biltmore Hotel.

In addition to the concert, a pre-performance talk about the history of the hotel will be presented at 3:30 PM in the Granada Ballroom, and historic hotel tours of the Biltmore Hotel property are available at 1:30 and 2:30 PM (meet in the lobby next to the concierge desk). Tickets for the concert are $30, $40 & $50 reserved seating, and a VIP ticket which includes an exclusive intermission Bacardi rum tasting and post-concert reception with the artists on the Granada Ballroom Terrace is available for $150. Tickets can be purchased through Orchestra Miami’s website at
www.orchestramiami.org or by calling Brown Paper Tickets at 1-800-838-3006. Free parking is available, as well as valet service.  For more information about the concert visit www.OrchestraMiami.org, or call (305) 274-2103.
