About Ars Flores Symphony Orchestra
Ars Flores Mission Statement:
Developing tomorrow's music professionals through mento More..ring and performance, while fostering community interest in the arts.
Ars Flores Statement of Purpose:
The Ars Flores Symphony Orchestra is a unique South Florida orchestra of professional, conservatory and gifted secondary school students, rehearsing and performing side-by-side.
As role models, the professionals demonstrate high quality musical performance and model professional behavioral standards for students.
The orchestra program includes a wide variety of challenging repertoire, including world premieres of new music. An annual concerto competition provides high school students as well as university- and conservatory-level musicians, of any instrument, the opportunity to perform with the orchestra. These concerts, in addition to others presenting respected guest artists, also afford orchestra members a chance to develop skills and insights necessary for accompanying soloists.
The orchestra strives to embrace members of the audience who may have little occasion to interact with the classics. Speaking from the podium during pre-concert lectures followed by a question/answer period, and inviting the audience to interact with musicians following performances, are practices which make the classics more understandable and thus approachable. At Music for Munchkins concerts the children are encouraged to ask questions and to interact with the conductor even during performances.
Public master classes, conducted by guest artists, are offered to South Florida student musicians and observers.
Ars Flores joins with humanitarian organizations in collaborative performances which raise funds for charitable purposes.
Ars Flores welcomes collaboration with other musical and nonmusical entities, relishing the opportunity to nurture an appreciation and enjoyment of a variety of musical genres in young musicians and audiences alike.Less..
