South Florida Symphony Orchestra’s Triumphant Season

Guests became enraptured in the drama of Tchaikovsky and the sprightly Highland-inspired melodies of Bruch as South Florida Symphony Orchestra (SFSO) presented an exuberant April Masterworks finale to a triumphant season! Led by Sebrina María Alfonso, SFSO will perform Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5 in E minor, Op. 64 and Bruch’s Scottish Fantasy in E-flat major, Op. 46 featuring Huifang Chen, SFSO’s associated conductor and concertmaster on April 17 at The Parker in Fort Lauderdale and on April 18 at Temple Israel of Greater Miami. A pre-concert chat with Dr. Alan Mason illuminating the works and composers took place 30 minutes prior to The Parker concert.  “As our 26th season draws to a close, I can’t help but reflect on what a wonderful journey it has been to share my love of music with you, our cherished audience,” said Maestra Alfonso. “You have shown the musicians, SFSO staff, and me so much love; our well of gratitude for you all is deep. I hope this final program featuring two captivating works by two masterful composers filled your heart with emotion – especially love – just as you have filled ours.”  Following its highly acclaimed 25th anniversary season, including sold-out shows and a celebrated performance accompanying award-winning alt-rock indie vocalist Natalie Merchant, South Florida’s largest symphonic orchestra is continuing its musical journey of excellence inspiring audiences of all ages.  Founded in 1997 in Key West by Music Director Maestra Sebrina María Alfonso, the now Wilton Manors-based South Florida Symphony Orchestra (SFSO) is celebrating its 26th season. SFSO is dedicated to providing enriching cultural music experiences to residents and visitors in Monroe, Miami-Dade and Broward Counties.
