MIAMI — Miami Classical Music Festival (MCMF), is an intensive training program for the  classical musicians to work with world-renowned mentors and gain professional performing experience.The Festival announced the lineup for its 2021 season from July 2 through 18, 2021 at various venues in Miami Beach. Since it is celebrating its eighth season, MCMF promises an exciting schedule of public concerts for all community members.

This reduced season is planned with audience and participant ,with health and safety as a top priority. It is anchored by two cutting-edge opera productions: Cendrillon tells the famous story of Cinderella in richly romantic music by French composer Jules Massenet and, in  Benjamin Britten’s comic opera Albert Herring, the timid Albert shocks the village folk with drunken hijinks. Both productions take place in one of the highest-profile venues in Miami Beach, the breathtaking Faena Forum, featurign  MCMF’s talented vocalists and a full orchestra.  

On Independence Day , the MCMF Orchestra will tour Miami Beach, entertaining thousands with free outdoor concerts in Lummus Park, at the Miami Beach Band Shell, and North Beach.

The Fourth of July concert series is an annual celebration of patriotic music and the soundtrack for two of the area’s best fireworks shows. The concerts are presented by the City of Miami Beach, Ocean Drive Association, and the North Beach Band Shell.

MCMF continues its tradition of  education for young vocalists and instrumentalists by providing instruction from world-class faculty.


The MCMF Conducting Institute is offering invaluable real-world experience for young artists who conduct the musicians of the MCMF Orchestra in rehearsals and a public concert on July 12.
