Orchestra Miami concert cancelled, evening of art and music to take its place

By Lawrence A. Johnson

Orchestra Miami has cancelled Saturday night’s scheduled concert at the Lincoln Theatre due to “unforeseen circumstances,” said artistic director Elaine Rinaldi. The program was to have featured music of Mozart and Tchaikovsky, featuring pianist Geoffrey Lott.

 A more intimate evening of music and art will be offered Saturday free of charge, under the auspices of Orchestra Miami and the Kelley Roy Gallery. A variety of artists will participate in a vocal recital in conjunction with the exhibition, “Handmade Horizons and Songs,” by artist Sebastian Spreng. 

 Part of the show is Spreng’s extraordinary installation Liederkreis Opus II. Comprised of forty-five small paintings, the work (above) was inspired by Robert Schumann’s song cycle, which will be performed by tenor Jason Ferrante with Rinaldi at the piano.

 The evening will also include soprano Susana Diaz singing Schubert’s Der Hirt auf dem Felsen and mezzo Heather Gallagher in Brahms’ Zwei Gesange, Op. 91.

 Admission is free and performances are 7 and 9 p.m. at the Kelley Roy Gallery, 50 NE 29th Street in Miami’s Wynwood District. www.orchestramiami.org; www.kelleyroygallery.com
