Founded in 2006 by Artistic Director Elaine Rinaldi, Orchestra Miami exists to fill the unique cultural needs of our community. Our main goal is to provide low-cost, high-quality artistic experiences that build community and provide programming which would otherwise be unavailable in South Florida. Equally important goals are to provide children and their families with opportunities to experience classical music, music it a part of their lives, and use it as a tool for learning and enjoyment.
Now entering our 14th Season in 2020-21, Orchestra Miami has exceeded expectations and provided our audience with the highest quality classical music experiences available in South Florida.
Over the course of its 14 year history, Orchestra Miami has performed everywhere from the Adrienne Arsht Center to art galleries to public parks. Our signature programs include the annual Beethoven on the Beach free outdoor concerts performed in Miami Beach, Pinecrest and Sunny Isles Beach, the Discover Miami Through Music series performed at landmarks across Miami-Dade County, and the Family Fun Concert Series at Pinecrest Gardens. Orchestra Miami consists of a select group of professional musicians, all permanent residents of South Florida, whose collective body is unparalleled in terms of excellence and experience. Our many collaborations with the Miami-Dade County Public Schools have introduced over 28,000 school-aged kids to classical music for free.
Led by Founder and Artistic Director Elaine Rinaldi, Orchestra Miami continues to exceed expectations in terms of programming and artistic quality.
