For over 30 years, internationally-acclaimed Maestro James Brooks-Bruzzese has brought the best of classical music to South Florida and the world at the helm of the Symphony Of The Americas. He will retire at the end of this season to become Founding Artistic Director Emeritus. The Year of the Maestro celebrates his impressive legacy as well as welcoming guest conductors who are being considered by the Conductor Search Committee for the new Music Director’s position. It marks the dawn of a new era. Symphony Of The Americas also presents the Haller Foundation’s “Serenades @ Sunset Series”, intimate evenings of beautiful sunsets, wine and hors d’oeuvres with world-class musical ensembles as well as the always-highly-anticipated, longest-running classical music festival in Florida: Summerfest; SymphonyOfTheAmericas.org.
Nostalgia is in the air as we re-introduce you to a few Key Biscayne mothers we’ve profiled over the years to see what it was like raising their kids on the island now that they are all grown up.
When we first profiled Barbara & Tino Peña and their family 11 years ago in a wildly popular “Super Parents!” feature, their four children ranged in age from 10 months to 8 years old. Today, the parents are the wiser for it and their kids have grown up right before their very eyes.
