Pianist Jeffrey Biegel Stars with South Florida Symphony Orchestra April 2 – 6, 2017
Internationally renowned pianist Jeffrey Biegel is to perform for South Florida audiences as the featured soloist in “Untamed Spirit,” the South Florida Symphony’s final Masterworks concert of its 2017 season. The concerts will be April 2 – 6, 2017 in Boca Raton, Key West, Miami and Broward.
Guided by award-winning conductor and Key West native Sebrina María Alfonso, the unique orchestra, celebrating its 19th season, began as the Key West Symphony and has expanded to offer concerts in Palm Beach, Broward, Miami Dade, and Monroe Counties. The Symphony features the most sought-after musicians and world-renowned soloists.
Biegel is to perform “Concerto for Simply Grand Piano and Orchestra” by P.D.Q. Bach, the fictitious 18th-century alter ego of composer / satirist Peter Schickele. The intriguing piece was co-commissioned by the Symphony specifically for Biegel.
The evening’s program also features the “Hebrides Overture” by Felix Mendelssohn, and Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5 in E Minor.
Jeffrey Biegel is a chart-topping classical recording artist as well as an accomplished composer and arranger. Acclaimed for his interpretations of works by both classic and contemporary composers, Biegel has appeared with leading symphonies around the world including the Philadelphia Orchestra, Boston Pops, Orchestre de la Suisse Romande and Bayerischer Rundfunk (Munich Radio Orchestra).
Thirty minutes prior to the April performances, attendees are invited to attend pre-concert chats with music historians Ian Fraser or Edward Pitts.
The tickets for the performances are available at SouthFloridaSymphony.org and are priced at $25 to $85 per person depending on seat location.
The concerts will be held on April 2nd at the Carole & Barry Kaye Performing Arts Auditorium, 777 Glades Rd., Boca Raton; on April 4th at the Tennessee Williams Theater, 5901 College Rd., in Key West; on April 5th at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, 1301 Biscayne Blvd., Miami; and on April 6th at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, 201 SW Fifth Ave., in Fort Lauderdale.
