Symphony lifts concerts aloft at Pier 66

Symphony of the Americas lifts the music 17 stories high to the Hyatt Regency Pier Sixty-Six Pier-Top with its Symphonies @ Sunset. Held on select Sunday evenings in the circular, revolving ballroom, the concerts marry exquisite chamber music and energetic jazz with wines and hors d’oeuvres. Here’s what’s coming up: Crosstown Quartet, Dec. 1 – Led by the symphony’s Associate Concertmaster Orlando Forte, this group breaks away from traditional string quartet music. Courtenay Budd, soprano, Iris van Eck, cellist, Feb. 2 – Acclaimed soprano Budd and principal cellist van Eck accompanied by piano and violin create an evening of varied classical and popular selections. Aisha Syed, violin, Ciro Fodere, piano, March 2 - Syed combines her varied classical, Argentine repertoire with works from her native Dominican Republic as she collaborates with internationally acclaimed Uruguayan pianist Fodere. Cool Jazz in High Places, April 27 – The symphony collaborates with Gold Coast Jazz Society artists Jamie Ousley on bass, John Yarling on drums, Martin Hand on guitar and a special guest artist, Gary Mayone on percussion. Hyatt Regency Pier Sixty-Six is also the setting for the symphony’s 18th Wines of the World auction and dinner on Nov. 15. The evening features the wine samplings of vintners from around the globe, a champagne reception, a gourmet dinner spotlighting top chefs and a live auction including wines and wine tours. —Elizabeth Rahe  Symphony of the Americas, 954-335-7002, symphonyoftheamericas.org, winesoftheworld.org.  PHOTO: Crosstown Quartet
