Experience the best of Broadway and cinema through the exquisite sounds of the Florida Philharmonic Orchestra. This outstanding orchestra, made up of 50 professional musicians from around the state and guest musicians of international renown, in addition to guest soloists, is led by acclaimed conductor Maestro Pasquale Valerio.
The “Curtain Up!” performance will feature some of the most beloved signature tunes from Broadway hits, such as “I Dreamed a Dream” (Les Misérables) and “Somewhere” (West Side Story), in addition to iconic film tunes “Unchained Melody” (Ghost) and “Hallejulah” (Shrek) among others.
The orchestra’s performances will be accompanied by the extraordinary voices of soloists Anna Eschbach and Mark Antonio de Villiers. Eschbach is in high-demand as a guest soprano.
