James Conlon, Music Director of the Los Angeles Opera, returns to lead the NWS Fellows through the tumultuous journey of Mahler’s introduction to the symphonic world. Boldly emblazoned with both his youthful energy and a musical maturity beyond his years, the First Symphony is an expansive exposé on life itself with pastoral cries of nature, everyday melodies and a hauntingly distorted version of “Frère Jacques.” But like life, the Symphony remains in search of victory, one found in a gloriously jubilant, unforgettable finale.

Miami City Ballet’s second program of the season brings to life George Balanchine’s famous words “see the music, hear the dance.” Ballet meets ballroom in Twyla Tharp’s popular work, Nine Sinatra Songs, featuring glamorous costuming by Oscar de la Renta and Great American Songbook classics by Ol’ Blue Eyes. The symphonic works of Schubert are imbued with Paul Taylor’s excitement and athleticism in Mercuric Tidings, a work in which Taylor said the “music and dance are so closely entwined, that they are one.” George Balanchine’s exultant “miracle ballet,” Symphony in Three Movements, contains some of the most dynamic and complex patterns found in dance, set to Stravinsky’s driving, jazz-flavored score.

This computer-animated, action-fantasy film directed by Chris Sanders and Dean DeBlois takes place in a mythical Viking village where teenager Hiccup aspires to be a dragon slayer. After capturing his first, Toothless, and about to gain acceptance, he no longer has the desire to kill it and instead befriends it. “When Hiccup and Toothless take to the sky,” writes Owen Gleiberman of Entertainment Weekly, “we’re free of every constraint, aware of the space on all sides. At moments like those, the movie makes you feel in every way miles high.” Winner of 10 Annie Awards, including Best Animated Feature. Family Day on Aragon is in partnership with the Coral Gables Museum and Books & Books. Times Read: 0

The Secret Celluloid Society presents the 40th anniversary screening of the original blockbuster, Jaws, on January 10 at 11:30 pm as part of the continuing After Hours series. For the month of January, After Hours screenings will be free and open to all. A landmark in cinema history, Jaws is a movie that begs to be seen on the big screen. From those classic ominous sounds composer John Williams choreographs throughout the film to the edge of your seat moments of anticipation, waiting for Bruce (the shark) to burst out of the water, the film created genre and kept many out of the ocean for months after its release. Spielberg’s classic features knockout performances from Roy Scheider, Richard Dryfus and Robert Shaw, eventually gaining a myriad of critical praise and even scholarly attention with college level courses dedicated to teaching the film and its critical role in the history of modern cinema. Famed movie critic Pauline Kael said, “It may be the most cheerfully perverse scare movie ever made…it has more zest than an early Woody Allen picture.” Times Read: 0

Jazz in the Gables is a collaboration between the City of Coral Gables, the Coral Gables Museum, the Business Improvement District, the Chamber of Commerce and the Miami Jazz Coop. With over ten recordings as a leader, vocalist, businessman and educator Kevin Mahogany has been the standard setter for jazz vocalists for three decades. His broad baritone was forged in his hometown: the legendary jazz metropolis known as Kansas City; where he learned to swing like Charlie Parker, shout the blues like Big Joe Turner, and cry a ballad like Lester Young; while, extending, elaborating and refining the jazz vocal legacies of Lambert, Hendricks & Ross, Eddie Jefferson and Al Jarreau into the myriad, interwoven dimensions of music. In addition to being a trend-setting leader of the first order, […]
