|Daniel Andai trades in his violin for a baton as he guest conducts The Miami Symphony Orchestra (MISO) in a program of beloved music, starting with Aaron Copland’s original Pulitzer Prize-winning music for his ballet, Appalachian Spring. Mozart’s “Haffner” Symphony No. 35 along with Richard Strauss’ Duet-Concertino for Clarinet and Bassoon round out this illuminating program.
Sharing the stage with Andai on the Strauss Duet-Concertino will be clarinetist Nuno Antunes and bassoonist Adrian Morejon. Antunes held the principal clarinet position at the Philharmonic Orchestra of the Americas, and is currently a faculty member of the Horace Mann School in New York City and the Praxis Youth Leadership Orchestra. Morejon is a member of Sospiro Winds, Talea Ensemble, Metropolis Ensemble, the bassoon duo Dark & Stormy, as well as a faculty member of the Boston Conservatory, the Composer’s Conference at Wellesley College, and the Praxis Youth Leadership Orchestra. Both soloists are members of the IRIS Orchestra and The Gene Project, which Antunes co-created.
