South Florida Symphony Orchestra’s Summer Chamber Music Series – Glinka, Arensky and Rachmaninoff

Sponsored By

June 20 @ 7:30 pm - 10:01 pm

Let the hopeful, romantic sounds of South Florida Symphony Orchestra (SFSO)’s popular
Summer with the Symphony chamber series enchant you this summer. After the dazzling
performances, attendees will have the opportunity to meet the talented musicians and enjoy
champagne and light bites at a complimentary reception.
June’s theme “Affairs of the Heart” presents piano trios by three well-known composers from
three generations – Mikhail Glinka, Anton Arensky and Sergei Rachmaninoff – that deliver
captivating melodies that vibrate deep within the soul. Rachmaninoff’s Trio élégiaque, Glinka’s
Trio Pathétique and Arensky’s Piano Trio No. 1 will take audience members on a dramatic,
emotional journey evocative of a romantic entanglement. Musicians Huifang Chen (violin),
Christopher Glansdorp (cello) and Catherine Lan (piano) will perform at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday,
June 20, at Coral Gables Congregational United Church of Christ.
From sold-out masterworks performances to accompanying today’s musicians such as Natalie
Merchant and performing modern musical scores including Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s
Stone ™ In Concert and Classical Mystery Tour: A Symphonic Tribute to The Beatles, South
Florida’s largest symphonic orchestra is continuing its journey of excellence inspiring audiences
of all ages and musical genres.

Secular Humanist Fund at The Miami Foundation.

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
