Thank you for a successful festival!


Pictured: The Amernet String Quartet and guest pianist, Anton Nel, take a bow after performing an All-Brahms program at the Wertheim Concert Hall on November 4.

Thank you to everyone who made our 2022 FIU Music Festival successful! From our opening Jazz Party concert on Oct. 27th with Grammy Award-Winning trombonist Delfeayo Marsalis, through our closing performance on November 6 with the International Contemporary Ensemble, from our Santa Fe Opera Gala to our two-night, All-Brahms marathon with our esteemed Amernet String Quartet and guests, it was an amazing two weekends of fantastic music! 

Our festival serves as an opportunity to bring world-renowned artists on our stages for you and our students to experience. All of the artists performing also engage in master classes and workshops for our students and rehearse with our ensembles. Rising stars and established musicians share their talents and wisdom with students throughout the Wertheim School of Music & Performing Arts.

We are so thankful to our artists who come from across the country and around the world. Their commitment to bringing so many unique works to life was heard in every note, and we are grateful to our community for the warm welcome these artists receive. There are so many individuals who make this possible – our sponsors, our donors, faculty, staff, students, and of course, our enthusiastic audiences, both in person and online. 

We sincerely thank Ocean Bank, the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs, and WLRN for their generous support of the festival.

We will be posting photos and videos of our festival throughout the week on Instagram and Facebook and hope to connect with you there!

Enjoy these performance highlights!
