Now entering its 29th year of thrilling audiences with world- class performances, Symphony of the Americas continues to raise the high bar of excellence with a season guaranteed to shine as one of the brightest yet! Under the artistic leadership of Maestro James Brooks-Bruzzese, Symphony of the Americas has taken an inventive approach each season by combining classical music with other art forms to engage and develop new audiences. International guest artists encompass ballet soloists, the pulses of Tango, classical music gems, and toe-tapping Broadway.
The Symphony remains committed to serving South Florida’s multicultural population. Designated one of just a handful of Major Cultural Institutions in Broward County, Symphony of the Americas has called the Broward Center for the Performing Arts home for its International Stephen Keller Guest Artist Series since its gala opening concert of the Amaturo Theater in 1991. The orchestra’s musical legacy has been captured on PBS and 33 compact disc recordings.
Since its inception, The Symphony has collaborated closely with local non-profit organizations and municipalities to present outreach concerts and educational programs. The Symphony has also served as a cultural bridge to audiences in Latin America and Europe, thanks to the internationally renowned Summerfest program, a six-week cultural exchange with major European chamber orchestras joined by selected Symphony members presenting concerts throughout Florida and the Americas under Maestro Brooks-Bruzzese’s baton. His talent as a passionate conductor, an artistic innovator and a dedicated educator, showcases the talents of the Symphony and South Florida to audiences around the world.
