 South Florida Symphony Orchestra (SFSO), led by Sebrina María Alfonso, is proud to announce its 25th anniversary 2022/23 season featuring five Masterworks concerts and Handel’s glorious holiday masterpiece Messiah.

A perennial favorite at its birthplace in Key West, South Florida Symphony Orchestra, last year, was named a Partner in the Arts for The Parker, managed by Broward Center for the Performing Arts. SFSO performed to full houses during its inaugural season at The Parker, which had completed a stunning $30 million renovation in 2021. Subsequently, its growing success in Miami necessitated a larger venue to accommodate its patrons.

SFSO’s celebratory 25th anniversary 2022/23 season of artistic excellence launches on November 9 at The Parker and will feature an outstanding season of classical masterworks, including one of the most beloved violin concertos in history, Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto in D Major, Shostakovich’s final “War Symphony,” No. 9, Brahms’s doubly demanding Concerto for Violin and Cello and an all-Dvořák program with audience favorite – and performer during the Symphony’s inaugural concert — Zuill Bailey. Additionally, honoring its commitment to presenting new works, SFSO will present its third world premiere by composer-in-residence John Gottsch: the Florida-inspired Ocklawaha. The South Florida Symphony Chorus will expand its repertoire, once again, performing holiday favorite Handel’s Messiah (a subscription add-on), as well as one of the greatest large chorale works of its day, Bruckner’s majestic Te Deum.
