World-Renowned Jazz & Classical Musicians
Gather in Coral Gables, Florida for the
31st Community Arts Program (CAP) Summer Concert Series!
Community Arts Program (CAP)
Summer Concert Series marks its 31st Season,
at Coral Gables Congregational United Church of Christ,
with a Spectacular Summer Concert Series Line-up.
MIAMI, FL - This summer, June 9 through August 18, in a quiet Miami neighborhood within the historic Coral Gables Congregational United Church of Christ’s intimate, Spanish-revival style setting, concertgoers will have the unique opportunity to be awed and entertained by some of the music industry’s most talented and revered classical and jazz figures. These artists will perform and delight audiences at the Community Arts Program (CAP) 2016 Summer Concert Series!
The Community Arts Program Summer Concert Series has entertained more than 64,000 people since it began in 1985. The Series has grown into a time-honored tradition and, more recently, part of a Community Arts Program that provides music education to children in its Conservatory for the Arts. “The Community Arts Program (CAP) Summer Concert Series is a rare opportunity to hear world-renowned artists in the intimate and beautiful Coral Gables Congregational United Church of Christ,” says Shelton G. Berg, University of Miami Dean of the Phillip and Patricia Frost School of Music. “The CAP Conservatory for the Arts provides high-quality music education to children, many of whom would otherwise be denied access to the wonder of music and the beauty of the artistic spirit.”
“We are very excited to again present a diverse and world-class line up of artists,” says Mark Hart, Executive & Artistic Director of the Community Arts Program. “It’s an honor to welcome concertgoers locally, from across the state, and as far away as Europe; and rewarding to see the growth of our music education program for kids! In all, we’ve come to provide exceptional cultural- and educationally-enriching experiences for more than 3,000 children and adults each year!”
Community Arts Program (CAP) 2016 Summer Concert Series Line-Up
JUNE 9 - DOC SEVERINSEN
“Heeeeere’s Johnny!” That lead-in, followed by a big band trumpet blast, was the hallmark of late night television’s iconic “The Tonight Show” with Johnny Carson, Ed McMahon, and bandleader Doc Severinsen. GRAMMY® Award winner Doc Severinsen still blows hard and hits the high notes, a result of his continued commitment to the refinement of his craft. In a program titled “Trumpet Kings,” Doc is joined by trumpet virtuoso Byron Stripling and the Byron Stripling Quartet. This evening of beloved, memorable tunes and unforgettable enjoyment will open with the CAP Miami Jazz Institute ALL-STAR Jazz Ensemble!
JUNE 23 - SYBARITE5
SYBARITE5 is classical music’s most dynamic new music group, comprised of Sami Merdinian and Sarah Whitney, violins; Angela Pickett, viola; Laura Metcalf, cello; and Louis Levitt, bass. Their classically-honed technique, mixed with grit and all out passionate attack, is critically acclaimed as “transfixing.” In a fascinating evening of music—from Elgar to Piazzolla, Pete Seegar, Radiohead, and more—you’ll hear how this incredible group continues to take audiences by storm all across the U.S., forever changing the perception of chamber music performance.
JULY 7 - CATHERINE RUSSELL
Daughter of Louis Armstrong's long-time musical director, Luis Russell, GRAMMY® Award winner Catherine Russell returns! Ms. Russell has been making fans and friends since the 2006 release of her debut album, Cat. Her recent release, Bring It Back, follows her 2012 album Strictly Romancin', which topped the jazz charts and earned her the Prix du Jazz Vocal from
L' Académie du Jazz Vocal 2012 (Vocal Album of The Year) by the Jazz Academy in France. With Billie Holiday lyricism and Sarah Vaughan depth, Catherine Russell—with pianist Mark Shane and bassist Lee Hudson—will again bring the audience to the edge of its seat on the way to their feet!
JULY 21 - TERRI LYNE CARRINGTON
GRAMMY® Award-winning drummer, composer and bandleader Terri Lyne Carrington has been at the top of the music industry for almost twenty-five years, collaborating with luminaries like Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Al Jarreau, and Cassandra Wilson. Money Jungle: Provocative in Blue—a highly praised homage to Duke Ellington, Charles Mingus and Max Roach—won Terri Lyne the 2013 GRAMMY® for Best Jazz Instrumental Album.
