The South Florida Symphony Orchestra opens its season with the Tropical Beats Series Moonlight Treasures on Sunday, October 12, 2014 at 6:30 pm. The show will feature members of the Blue Door String Quartet and music by Dohnányi and Beethoven. Guests will be serenaded at the stunning La Te Da Restaurant located at 1125 Duval Street in Key West, FL.

“The South Florida Symphony Orchestra looks forward to treating our audience with a special evening of diverse music,” said Jacqueline Lorber, President and CEO of the South Florida Symphony Orchestra.

Host Christopher Rounds will kick off the Symphony’s season in high style at La Te Da’s new Crystal Room Cabaret, which includes an outside breezeway and deck.  Delicious hors d’oeuvres, desserts, and special libations are included in this special evening.

Whitney La Grange (violin), Mario Goto (viola), and Arthur Cook (cello) will perform Dohnányi’s Serenade for String Trio in C major, Op.10 and Beethoven’s String Trio in C minor Op. 9. No.3. Written 100 years apart, Beethoven’s classically restrained work juxtaposes beautifully with the more dissonant and contemporary work of Dohnányi.

The spectacular evening will also include an appearance by artist Perry Frantzman. He will display a sample of his stunning photographs, which are inspired by nature’s richness and fragments from ordinary life.
