MISO Combines Music, Art and Storytelling for April’s ‘MOZ-ART’ Concert Series

The Miami Symphony Orchestra (MISO), together with Concertmaster and guest conductor Daniel Andai, presents “MOZ-ART” at the Wertheim Performing Arts Center at Florida International University (FIU) on Saturday, April 11, and at the South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center (SMDCAC) on Sunday, April 12.

 Featured on the program is blind pianist Ignasi Cambra, who studied at the Badalona Conservatory in Spain, the University of Indiana at Bloomington, and is currently pursuing a Master’s degree at the prestigious Julliard School in New York. Cambra has received several prizes in international piano competitions, and joins guest conductor Daniel Andai in a truly special evening that combines the roots of Mozart’s classical music alongside the parallel world of the visual arts.

 A special performance will feature Boys & Girls Club student paintings, stories and the music they inspired during MISO’s second annual after-school program, the Music Art Challenge (MAC), followed by a brief award ceremony. Launched in 2013, MAC is one of MISO’s outreach programs for underserved communities in South Florida. Tickets can be purchased through the SMDCAC website, by calling the MISO box office at (305) 275-5666, or by e-mailing info@themiso.org.
