Rehearsals will be open to museum visitors, creating a spontaneous interplay of process and audience, and culminating in a free public presentation on June 2, 2016 at 7:00PM. With an all-star cast led by soprano Anne-Carolyn Bird, this collaboration promises to explode perceptions of how classical music can be consumed in the 21st century, and brings a world-class musical event to South Florida audiences. The event is made by possible by a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, through its Knight Arts Challenge.  Join us on May 26th to celebrate the beginning of this groundbreaking week long event!
