South Florida Symphony Orchestra’s Summer Chamber Music Series – Mendelssohn and Ravel

Sponsored By

July 26 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 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.

July’s “The Passion of Youth” program concludes the series with Felix Mendelssohn’s fiery String Quartet No. 2 and Maurice Ravel’s bewitching String Quartet in F major. The quartets, written by the composers aged 18 and 28, respectively, convey the depth and passion of young love. Musicians Huifang Chen (1st violin), Mei Mei Luo (2nd violin), Brandon Wu (viola), and
Claudio Jaffe (cello) will perform at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, July 26, at the Center for Spiritual Living Fort Lauderdale (4849 N Dixie Hwy).

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.

SFSO’s Summer with the Symphony 2024 is generously underwritten by Robert Smith and The Secular Humanist Fund at The Miami Foundation.

General admission tickets are $35. Student tickets are $15 each. Tickets are available to purchase by calling (954) 522-8445 or by visiting southfloridasymphony.org/summer-with-the-symphony.

Editor-in-Chief

BIOGRAPHY

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.
