With 80 professional musicians selected from around the world, the Miami Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of the legendary Eduardo Marturet, represents the exceptional talent and diversity that mirrors South Florida’s international and multicultural richness. “As a Miamian, I am proud of the wide cultural offer of our city,” said City of Miami Mayor Francis Suarez whilst presenting the proclamation alongside Commissioners Christine King, Alex Diaz De La Portilla, Ken Russell, Joe Carollo and Manolo Reyes. “The Miami Symphony Orchestra is a fundamental part of the local culture.” Maestro Marturet has been able to fuse a classical repertoire with Latin genres such as jazz, pop and rock, representing South Florida and its cultural mix unlike any other musical group in its style, consolidating itself as a mirror of the community. During his 16-year tenure, he has grown MISO into a world-class symphony known for its unique classical-crossover repertoire. “Ultimately, MISO belongs to the community, and our job is to raise the artistic level each and every year,” he says. “Thanks to our loyal fans and supporters, our future looks as bright as the glow of the great city of Miami.”;
