SEPTEMBER 2014

Have you had a chance to look at your calendar and see how many Dranoff 2 piano concerts might fit into your busy season?  I hope all five!

186 keys travel from Broadway to the Opera, from lyricism to big bang, from "percussioned" phrases to sung poems. Artists are coming from Italy, Ukraine, Holland, Germany, Scotland and the United States to Miami Beach, Coral Gables, Aventura, Cutler Bay and downtown Miami. Will you join them and us?

Think about our Season Ticket package!   VIP tickets include preferred seating and a pre-concert reception where you can mingle with old friends and new.   Please scroll down to get details and  purchase. They are the best deal in town.

Regardless of the ticket level, do join us for the Bacardi Circle during intermission.

Our first concert on October 24 will be at the Coral Gables Congregational Church. Music  by the great composers of ballet, opera and theater music, written for two pianos and interpreted by the Ukrainian duo Chipak & Kushnir with just a little help of some of the great talent at the  Frost School of Music. Joining them will be  Tony L. Boutte, tenor, and Jennifer Voigt, soprano, in performing the  great American composer Ned Rorem's Four Dialogues for soprano, tenor and 2 pianos. Ned Rorem has, in fact, a longtime connection to the Dranoff; his composition Six Variations for Two Pianos was commissioned by the Dranoff for the 1995 Competition.

Find out about the duo below; the next newsletter will introduce you to the singers. (I want to keep a few things a surprise....)

We cannot wait to share all this with you.  And I personally look forward to see you there.


Warm regards,

Gabriele Fiorentino
President, Dranoff Board
