Please join us in celebrating the 29th season of Festival Miami! Presented by the University of Miami Frost School of Music, Festival Miami is the largest and most diverse music festival in South Florida, and it celebrates the transformative power of music. For the past 28 years, we have been proud to bring you great and affordable programming and this year is an incredible showcase of stellar talent.
Thanks to our sponsors and individual donors, Festival Miami was a great success with most concerts selling out to enthusiastic audiences. With your support, Festival Miami will continue to bring irreplaceable experiences to our students and great music to the Miami area, even during tough economic times. This year, our festival will run from October 4 through November 4, 2012, once again offering concerts under the themes of Great Performances, Jazz and Beyond, Creative American Music, and Music of the Americas.
Festival Miami is a true treasure and gift to our community, and it continues to be possible because of generous support by individuals such as you, along with corporations, foundations and county and state agencies. Donors to Festival Miami enjoy the world’s greatest music, a range of benefits and the satisfaction of knowing their support is providing rich cultural opportunities for citizens in South Florida.
I am personally asking you to be a part of this exciting season by making your contribution to Festival Miami. It is a labor of love for the Frost School of Music, and together we can truly change the world through music. I hope you will join us in this worthwhile and uplifting endeavor.
