FIU Music Festival Returns with Classical, Jazz and Latin Music

Top local, national and international performers will take the stage when the FIU Music Festival returns to the Herbert and Nicole Wertheim Performing Arts Center.

The Festival kicks off on Oct. 5, when Conductor Maestro Raffaele Ponti leads the FIU Symphony Orchestra in a program featuring the works of Aaron Copland and Ludwig van Beethoven.

The Festival will also feature performances by alumnus and renowned Latin Jazz sensation Tony Succar, Grammy award-winning vocalist Jon Secada, and International Chopin Piano Competition medalist Gabriela Montero. But with more than a dozen concerts throughout the month of October, audiences will be able to enjoy live music by leading artists including the Amernet String Quartet, Roberto & Andres Diaz, Chauncey Patterson, Tony Arnold, Lisanne Lyons & the FIU Jazz Big Band and the Mexico City Woodwind Quintet as well as the FIU Choirs, Marching Band & Wind Ensemble.

This year’s festivities mark the 20th anniversary of the Center, one of Miami’s premiere collegiate theatrical and concert venues. The Festival started in 1996 as part of a weeklong celebration and inauguration of the Center, and then became an annual event with a popular following.

Now after a seven-year hiatus, the Festival is back with a lineup aimed at attracting old fans and creating new ones.

“Over the past few years, interest in bringing the Festival back to FIU has grown significantly. Well, we’ve listened! We’re proud to bring it back with an exciting array of iconic and emerging musicians from around the globe,” said Karen S. Fuller-Veloz, artistic director for the FIU School of Music.

Tickets for the FIU Music Festival are on sale now. They can be purchased by calling 305-348-0496 or by visiting music.fiu.edu/musicfestival. VIP subscriptions to the FIU Music Festival are available for $60 and general subscriptions are $45. General admission ranges from $15-5 for most performances with $35 tickets for Jazz Dynamics with Tony Succar and Jon Secada.

The FIU Music Festival is presented by the FIU School of Music and funded in part by the “México en Escena” from the Mexican National Fund for Culture and Arts, The Miami Herald, CultureForce, Consulate General of Turkey in Miami and the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs.

Chameleon Musicians Make Chamber Music Magic

Exciting and diverse repertoire played by world class musicians in a relaxed atmosphere


“No! Chameleon Musicians don’t change their colors in the middle of performance. Nor do they switch their attire in keeping with what they are playing. They don’t even stick out long gummy tongues to assist in turning the pages of the music. What they actually do, is play with brilliance, energy, accurate intonation and fine ensemble.

The group, which has been performing for thirteen years, changes its personnel in accordance with the requirements of the music. This can vary considerably within a program, and takes place in one of the best possible locations for chamber music—the Josephine Leiser Center in downtown Fort Lauderdale. No stage, no formal concert hall, just a sunny (this is Florida you know), intimate room around which are grouped chairs within mere feet of the players.” (American Record Guide, Alan Becker)
