South Florida Symphony Shines April 5-9th


Internationally renowned cellist Zuill Bailey is the featured soloist in the South Florida Symphony’s final master concert of its 15th anniversary season “From Darkness Comes the Light”. Bailey and the Symphony, composed of “world-class” musicians (ABC News) from around the United States, are scheduled to perform April 5-9, throughout the Region including: Tennessee Williams Theatre, Key West; Aventura Arts & Cultural Center, Aventura; Broward Center’s Amaturo Theatre, Ft. Lauderdale and the Delray Beach Center for the Arts in Delray Beach. The orchestra is led by its award-winning conductor Sebrina María Alfonso to critical acclaim and standing ovations in all of their concerts. The evening opens with Franz Schubert’s “Rosamunde Overture”, considered one of Schubert’s finest instrumental works. Next on the program is the hauntingly beautiful Elgar Cello Concerto with the incomparable Zuill Bailey as our Soloist. Mr. Bailey’s masterful artistry will be on display in this challenging piece which will intrigue and delight. Elgar’s wife died a few months after the first performance of his cello concerto and a part of Elgar’s creative spark died with her. Johannes Brahms’ Symphony No. 2 concludes the Symphony’s 15th Anniversary season. The 2nd is the happiest of Brahms four Symphonies. The premiere, conducted by Hans Richter on December 30, 1877, was one of Brahms’s great triumphs; the third movement had to be repeated. Soloist Zuill Bailey is a chart-topping classical recording artist as well as an accomplished chamber music performer and recitalist. He has appeared with leading symphonies around the world including the Moscow Chamber Orchestra on its 50th anniversary tour of Russia. Tickets range from $35-$75. A reception is scheduled with Alfonso, Bailey and orchestra members for VIP ticket holders. Tickets can be purchased online at For more information call the SFSO at 954-522-8445.
