Don’t miss Orchestra Miami’s first Discover Miami Through Music Series – Masonic Mozart at Miami’s historic Scottish Rite Temple. You may have driven by it countless times as you passed through Downtown Miami and marveled at its lovely and exotic Art Deco exterior. Now, you will have the opportunity to go inside and enjoy Orchestra Miami’s inaugural concert of the new series featuring concerts in Miami’s most interesting and historic landmarks. Masonic Mozart, is an all-Mozart concert. One of history’s most celebrated Masons, Mozart wrote numerous pieces for Masonic Ritual, for his Masonic brothers or based on Masonic symbols. The program features Orchestra Miami’s principal clarinetist Richard Hancock in Mozart’s Concerto for Clarinet, K. 622 and special guest Dr. Tony Boutté as the tenor soloist in Die Mauerfreude, a cantata for tenor and orchestra. The concert opens with the gorgeous Overture to Die Zauberflöte (the “Masonic”opera) and closes with Mozart’s greatest symphonic achievement, the “Jupiter” Symphony N. 41, K. 551 in C Major. The 39 musicians from Orchestra Miami will be led by Artistic Director Elaine Rinaldi. Following the concert, historian Dr. Paul George will talk about the Scottish Rite building and the historic Lummus Park neighborhood. Tickets are $20, $25, $30 and $40; $5 for students w/ID. Handicapped patrons can call for assistance with seating since the building is handicapped accessible but has no elevator.
