Okay, Miami’s art scene has grown up a lot since I moved here from San Francisco over 21 years ago. Now there are concerts, monthly art walks, symphonies and a variety of art programs year round. However, with the cool weather teasers that usually start in October, so does Miami’s main season of the arts. Here is a list of things to do in October to get you started.
UM’s Frost School of Music kicks of Festival Miami on October 2. This annual music festival runs through November 4 and consists of a wide range of music concerts.
Pinecrest Gardens kicks off their annual Jazz Series with South Florida Jazz Orchestra’s Great American Songbook on October 27. Prior to that, FIU’s Latin Jazz Ensemble starts their first of four concerts at gardens on October 10.
Pinecrest Gardens also kicks off their movie series with Chick Flick Wednesdays and Family Night Fridays.
The Miami City Ballet opens their 2012-2013 season on October 19.
