The City of Sunny Isles Beach will begin the sixth year of this cultural series with the Florida International University (FIU) Studio Jazz Big Band, directed by Jim Hacker. The group will perform swinging jazz standards and contemporary compositions outdoors at Heritage Park (19200 Collins Avenue) at 6:30 pm on Sunday, October 12, 2014.
Florida International University and the City of Sunny Isles Beach enjoy a unique partnership of cultural exchange. To the delight of residents in the city, the students and faculty of the university’s music department show off their talents at various City venues throughout the year. This year’s performances include: the FIU Studio Jazz Band, the Amernet String Quartet, the FIU Orchestra, and excerpts from the best shows on Broadway by the FIU Musical Theatre students.
Usually, the Four Seasons Series is free for residents presenting a SIB Resident ID Card and $5.00 without a SIB Resident ID Card ($10 for the FIU Prestige Series). This concert, however, is free to all and open to the public.
Free parking for the event will be available at the Heritage Park garage, as well as under the William Lehman Causeway. The Special Events Shuttle Bus will transport residents to and from the event. For event information, contact the Cultural & Community Services Department at 305-792-1706.
