The program will showcase world-class jazz and classical superstars, as well as the University of Miami’s Henry Mancini Institute Orchestra, featuring Grammy-winning trumpeter, film composer, 1981 YoungArts alumnus, and Artistic Director of the Henry Mancini Institute Terence Blanchard, along with YoungArts all-star alumni.

Co-presented by the Adrienne Arsht Center, the University of Miami Frost School of Music, and YoungArts, the concert will be co-produced and directed by Larry Rosen, with Shelly Berg, Dean of the University of Miami’s Frost School of Music, as Music Director.

The special music event will mark the first time that these three major Miami-based arts and educational institutions will join forces to present an integrated program.

The concert is also one of the special events during YoungArts Week 2013 when the nation’s top young artists in the visual, literary, and performing arts will perform and exhibit their works in Miami.

The evening will feature today’s pre-eminent musicians performing classical music’s most memorable themes performed in a mix of orchestral stylings and jazz improvisations, and culminate in an explosive grand finale.
