County’s venues return to live holiday concerts

Since the beginning of the pandemic, the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs has shared useful information and helpful resources for arts organizations and artists.

With audiences enthusiastically returning to in-person activities, there’s a robust restart with so many cultural institutions, including museums, theaters, performing arts groups and festivals, successfully and safely welcoming patrons back to arts venues, said Michael Spring about the no mask requirements on all public county buildings.

The eased restriction guidelines come at perfect timing as the county’s cultural arts facilities bring back the excitement of the live arts.
The Miami-Dade County Auditorium at 2901 W Flagler St. has lined up a showcase performance to commence the holiday season. Starting Dec. 2, the public is invited to see “Armour Dance Theatre presents The Nutcracker.”

Kids can also rekindle their holiday spirit with “Cuentos Para Contar En Navidad de Antonio Orlando Rodríguez.”

As part of the “Very Merry Holiday Season Series,” kids will learn about Santa Claus, his wife and the reindeer Rudolph’s journey in a poetic and joyful tour of Christmas season stories. Ancient traditions and carols are combined in a proposal for children and for the whole family in which, through humor, fantasy and music, Christmas is celebrated as a moment of family union, friendship, generosity and hope.

The Florida Chamber Orchestra will hit the stage Dec. 11 presenting “Christmas is in the Air.” Marlene Urbay and the orchestra celebrate Christmas with a traditional concert where timeless melodies will be rendered by Lucy Grau and Peter Rivera, together with the Belen Jazz Band.

Willy Chirino and his wife Lissette are coming back with their special “Navidad en Familia” Dec. 18. The singing power couple will perform Christmas classic songs and their greatest hits.

Over at the South Miami Cultural Arts Center at 10950 SW 211th St. in Cutler Bay, Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without the enchanting dance story of a little girl and her Nutcracker Prince, who overcome the malevolent Mouse King to journey to a fantastical Land of Sweets. Professional ballet stars join talented young dancers in Miami Youth Ballet’s production of “The Nutcracker,” starting Dec. 3.

Led by Associate Conductor James K. Bass, “A Seraphic Fire Christmas” will make its grand return for its Season 19 on Dec. 19. In what promises to be a joyful celebration of the holiday season, Seraphic Fire singers will serenade audiences with classics like “Silent Night” and “Jesus Christ the Apple Tree.”

“Miami-Dade County continues to be an outstanding case study of the power of the arts to positively change neighborhoods, people and the economy – and most boldly, to create a brand-new kind of 21st century center of commerce and culture,” Mr. Spring said. “Our cultural community continues to serve a key role in the Miami-Dade County tourism marketing and promotion initiatives.”
