11 a.m. on a Wednesday morning is the best time to experience The Florida Orchestra in a slightly different, more upbeat way. With Stuart Malina conducting, The Florida Orchestra will perform classic Latin scores such as Gershwin’s Cuban Overture, Marquez’s Danzon No. 7 and Caturla’s Three Cuban Dances.
Join them at the Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater for a pre-concert conversations at 10 a.m., and enjoy free coffee and doughnuts while you appreciate a full-orchestra rendition of old Cuban favorites.
Cafe Ole, The Florida Orchestra. Wed., Jan. 8. 11 a.m. $26. Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen Booth Rd., Clearwater. Rutheckerdhall.com \
