The evening began with a red carpet and crisp sparkling wine from FL Fuoriserie as guests arrived at the landmark Morris Lapidus-designed hotel. While sparkling wine flowed from a champagne tower, dancers from the Miami City Ballet performed a contemporary routine amongst the guests in an immersive performance. Ladies and Gentlemen then transitioned to the grand concert space in the hotel’s ballroom where the world-renowned Miami Symphony Orchestra performed a specially curated collection of locally significant music as a moving musical tribute to the last seven decades of Miami’s one-of-a-kind history, art, and culture using MONAD Studio 3-D printed sonic sculptures. With the help of the knowledgeable South Florida-based luthier Scott F. Hall, the sonic sculptures were usable instruments played by the Miami Symphony Orchestra to a crowd of notables, tastemakers, politicians, art collectors, and artists.
