Community Arts Program (CAP)
2020 VIRTUAL Summer Concert Series
Community Arts Program (CAP)
Summer Concert Series marks its 35th Season (First Virtual)!

Six, delicious after-dinner VIRTUAL concerts bringing 
South Florida musicians to concertgoers’ homes!

EVERY Thursday, July 9 through August 13 at 7:30pm, locals and the world are invited to the Community Arts Program (CAP) 2020 VIRTUAL Summer Concert Series! Take a seat at CommunityArtsProgram.org or Community Arts Program Facebook - and feast your eyes and ears!

From opening night with jazz pianist Shelly Berg in a program titled My Favorite Things! to A Jazz Shout-Out Finale for a Dave Brubeck 100th closing night - six, delicious after-dinner concerts feature outstanding South Florida musicians. Within the comfort of one’s home, these six, one-hour jazz and classical concerts are FREE. Donations will be accepted each concert evening to help support the South Florida musicians and technicians making it possible.

The Community Arts Program (CAP) Summer Concert Series has entertained more than 69,000 people since it began in 1985. The Series has grown into a time-honored tradition and, more recently, part of a Community Arts Program that also provides music education to children and youth in its award-winning CAP Conservatory for the Arts and CAP Miami Jazz Institute.

We’re very excited to again present a line-up of incredible artists,” says Mark Hart, Executive and Artistic Director of the Community Arts Program. “Though we’ll miss welcoming concert-goers within the beauty of CAP’s home at the historic Coral Gables Congregational Church, we’re thrilled to virtually reach an even broader audience across all of Florida and the world!

BackroomLive Miami Cats GOFUNDME Campaign

BackroomLive at The Fish House Miami is a venue where Live Music lives since 1996.  As a coincidence we opened the business on Elvis Presley’s birthday,  an omen for the amount of music we would present in the future. 

Since the March 17, 2020 #stayhome mandate, there are about 100 canceled gigs and musicians out of work from our line up.   As you might know by now,  we present Jazz Wednesday,  Blues Thursday and rotational musicians during the weekends. 

The donations will be distributed on your behalf to the artists that were scheduled to perform during this time.  If there is a surplus we will continue disbursements to any former artist who has performed in the past in BackroomLive like David Leon, Melinda Rose Rodriguez, Aurora Natrix, Joey Gilmore to mention a few.

Some of our regular Jazz Cats who will benefit are Marc Berner, Peter Betan, Federico Britos, Ahmed Barroso, Brev Sullivan and Blues musicians like Darrell Raines, George Caldwell,  Janey Wish, Motel Mel also who kept weekly gigs doing the Blues Jam on Thursday’s at BackroomLive.

Thank you for your donation and supporting our local artists. 

Angela Rivero, BackroomLive Manager

DANIELA SOLEDADE - Putting the "BOSS" in Bossa Nova Online and In Person!

Catch a Concert -
Fridays in July!

Daniela Soledade may initially seem like a fresh name in Brazilian 
music, but the vocalist’s impact immediately strikes a chord as
 encountered on her bold and subtle debut album, A Moment of 
You (2019 Blue Line Music Records). A carefully curated set of 
Bossa Nova gems (while dodging the most obvious choices), 
Brazilian-ized standards and original songs, created in partnership 
with producer/guitarist Nate Najar, the album frames the luminous 
tone and mature interpretive powers of the singer- singing in both 
English and Portuguese. 

Fridays, July 3, 10 & 17,  2020 ~ 7:30-8:30pm (Eastern)
