This is the description of the choral Mass we commissioned, one of four original works in our continuing Martha and Mary Meditations Series. Nestor Torres' work "Marta y Maria", focusing on the dualities of life and celebrating the happy convergence of work and inspiration when one finds the Spirit, has just been included on his CD "Del Caribe, Soy!"
Before each concert our artists give master classes and in-school concerts at local schools. Here Nestor Torres works with flute players at Miami Beach Senior High.
Saint Martha Concerts (r) 2017 2018 Season
We present world class concerts at movie ticket prices, bringing the diverse So Florida community together, speaking the universal language of beautiful music. Our new primary venue is Barry University's Broad PAC, where we continue to be determinedly not religious but inevitably spiritual, reaching out to all of the community to feel the Spirit together. Prices are $15 and $25; no one is turned away for inability to pay. Students, community and veteran groups receive free tickets. Master classes, workshops, and concerts are given at Natural Bridge Elementary School, Miami Beach Senior High, and Miami Arts Charter School. The common sensibility of music and art is emphasized by the display of student art at the venue for each concert, and one student work is selected for the cover of each program.
This year's artists include Charlie Sepulveda and Nestor Torres; NuDeco Ensemble; Violinist Gary Levinson with pianist Paul Posnak and Doublebassist Eugene Levinson; modern string trio Time for Three; and Messiaen Quartet: Music for Eternity.
