Concert hall or airport terminal?
It may be hard to tell at Miami International Airport (MIA) on Saturday May 14, 2011, when the airport hosts a rare two-hour concert by the Miami Symphony Orchestra (MISO).
The 71-member orchestra, led by MISO Music Director and Conductor Eduardo Marturet and accompanied by Russian-born virtuoso Yury Shadrin on piano, will perform Music in Unsuspected Spaces, beginning at 2 pm in MIA’s Concourse J International Greeter’s Lobby.
The pre-security concert, the first in a series of MIA airport concerts, will feature Academic Festival Overture by Brahms, Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor by Rachmaninoff and Symphony No. 8 in G major by Dvorak.
A lot of new services, amenities and events have been popping up at the Miami Airport.
In March, 2011 members of the Florida Grand Opera staged a surprise performance.
And the airport’s Terminal D is now home to a branch of Shula’s Bar and Grill and the first airport outpost of The Counter, Custom Built Burgers. In addition to the zillions of build-your-own burger options, the Counter has a menu with regional dishes and is open for breakfast.
