Godspeed John and Martin - enjoy the retirement

We Say Goodbye To JohnMartin's
JohnMartin's had planned to close at the end of May, with a month-long celebration of their 31 years on the Mile, but the pandemic changed their plans. We remember this delightful place fondly as we wish them all the best in their retirement.

They changed the character of Coral Gables from a boring, uptight tony town to a vibrant and friendly place where everyone wanted to meet up with friends. They did it with heart and soul, with authenticity and with a tireless work ethic. They knew their patrons and made them feel like family. It doesn’t get any better than that. Bravo. Kudos. Enjoy the time off. You earned it.

Frost Symphony Orchestra Performs Strauss’ "A Hero’s Life"
Internationally recognized for his moving performances, innovative programming and extensive catalog of recordings, Frost conductor Gerard Schwarz presents a compelling program. In his nearly five decades as a respected classical musician and conductor, Schwarz has received 7 Emmy Awards, 14 GRAMMY nominations, 8 ASCAP Awards, and numerous Stereo Review and Ovation Awards. He became the first American named Conductor of the Year by Musical America and received numerous honorary doctorates from various universities. This evening’s centerpiece is Richard Strauss’s tone poem Ein Heldenleben (A Hero’s Life). It stands as the culmination of 19th-century romanticism and as an autobiographical statement, as Strauss quotes from several of his previous works. This program also includes Walter Piston’s Three New England Sketches and the unveiling of a new work by a Frost student composition competition winner. *Originally performed February 6, 2020.
