Commonly called The Arsht Center, is Florida’s largest performing arts center and is located on Biscayne Boulevard in the Omni neighborhood of Downtown, Miami, Florida, United States. It is the second largest performing arts centers in the United States.

The Center was partly built on the grounds of a former Sears department store; it was an Art Deco building constructed in 1929, predating the Art Deco hotels on Ocean Drive. It was added to the United States National Register of Historic Places in 1997 as Sears, Roebuck and Company Department Store. However, by 2001, the only surviving part of the original structure was a seven-story tower built by Sears, the space’s successor. The department store space itself had been demolished. It was decided to preserve the tower and incorporate it into the new performing arts center.

The Center is known as a presenter of world-class performances, an openly-accessible community resource, a source of education for children and adults, and a catalyst for economic growth in downtown Miami.

Celebrated pianist, human rights activist, wildlife conservationist and author Hélène Grimaud makes her anticipated return to the Adrienne Arsht Center in a one-night-only performance of Maurice Ravel’s jazzy Concerto in G. Its sublime second movement in the hands of Ms. Grimaud is said to make time stand still. Conductor Mark Wigglesworth closes the program with the Fellows in Gustav Mahler’s First Symphony. Mahler famously said, “to create a symphony is, for me, to create a world,” and this world is boldly emblazoned with both youthful energy and musical maturity. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s beloved Overture to The Magic Flute is a sparkling romp fueled by musical genius.
