Maestro Eduardo Marturet of the Miami Symphony Orchestra (MISO) once said that "ultimately MISO belongs to the community, and our job is to raise the artistic level each and every year.”  In its latest pop-up series the internationally respected conductor and professional symphony are keeping their promise with free open-air concerts in the heart of the Miami Design District.  Mark your calendars for the next event on Friday, January 27, and prepare for an evening of discovery along with some of the greatest classical masters of all-time.
