Two of the area’s cultural gems –Ballet Palm Beach and the Palm Beach Symphony– are collaborating for a single, special performance starting at 2 p.m. on Sunday, February 28 at the Meyer Amphitheatre.
Harmony: An Exhibition of the Arts, is a free, two-hour outdoor show presented by the West Palm Beach Arts & Entertainment District (A&E District), which is comprised of more than 20 distinct and distinguished cultural venues including the Palm Beach Symphony. It is a unique event bringing two world-class performing arts institutions together for one entertaining afternoon set along our stunning waterfront.
Ballet Palm Beach will present the world premiere of Gatsby, a new ballet based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s famous novel. Palm Beach Symphony will present an exciting and powerful program including Georges Bizet’s Carmen Suite No. 1. The two will also join forces to perform Peter and the Wolf featuring Prokofiev’s classic score. The harmonious afternoon will be led by guest conductor, Nir Kabaretti, recognized internationally as one of America’s leading conductors.
Harmony will give the community the opportunity to experience a world-class concert in their back yard, introducing classical music to many in a fun, relaxing setting,” said David McClymont, Palm Beach Symphony’s Executive Director. “It’s an afternoon that everyone can enjoy regardless of age and will make for a special afternoon that you won’t forget,” said Colleen Smith, artistic director of Ballet Palm Beach.
