Check Out the Fairchild Music Festival in Miami this Month
Living in the Miami area, we are lucky to have a lot of great events happening year round. While it seems that the rest of the country is buried under snow, or forced to remain inside due to frigid temperatures, we are lucky enough to enjoy this beautiful weather. While living here year round is great, it is easy to take for granted just how incredible living in south Florida can really be. Beaches and outdoor local events are only a few of the many things we get to enjoy year round, and we absolutely love to share information on local events happening around our area.
The Fairchild GardenMusic Festival began its annual event last year, and will be taking place this January 9-19, at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, at 10901 Old Cutler Road in Coral Gables. Teddy Abrams is the former Conducting Fellow of the New World Symphony and will be directing the entire festival. Around twenty musicians will be brought into the festival to perform and make up the ensemble and present the music. Two violinists are coming from Vienna to perform at the festival, and include Troy Roberts and Jeremy Kittel. Select evenings during the festival will have themed evening performers, which will take place January 9, 11, 14, 17, and will conclude on January 19.
The GardenMusic Festival was a winner of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation Arts Challenge, and were given $150,000 in a matching grant. The vision for the festival according to Abrams is for the festival to, “Be extremely accessible and inviting, for people to commune with the arts, the music, and the space itself.” Tickets for the event begin at only $5 per person, with the idea that everyone who wishes to be a part of the event will be able to. Abrams will be playing at every concert along with his trio. For more information, and to get tickets, you can visit the festival’s official website. If you end up going, let us know what you think!
