Miami Swim Week & Sports Illustrated

Sports Illustrated Swimsuit closed out Miami Swim Week with a runway presentation at W South Beach. The runway showcased a lineup of women donning socially conscious swimwear by designers who encourage and promote sustainability, inclusivity and philanthropy. Halima Aden in a custom-designed burkini by Cynthia Rowley that read “DON’T CHANGE YOURSELF, CHANGE THE GAME,” set the tone for the show. Cheering them on from the sidelines were Olivia Culpo, Anne de Paula with 76ers boyfriend Joel Embiid and Danielle Herrington.

Summerfest in Weston

Many gathered to enjoy the sounds of Summerfest, an annual concert from the Symphony of the Americas. Under the baton of Maestro James Brooks-Bruzzese, musicians from around the globe joined select musicians from the Symphony of the Americas to treat the attendees to a beautiful selection of compositions. The Weston Music Society presented the concert and proceeds went to the WMS’s expanded school programs. The program opened with “Suite in F for Strings (Lady Radnor’s Suite)” by Hubert Parry and “Serenade Opus 10” by Ernest von Dohnanyi. In addition to familiar pieces from Vivaldi, Mozart and Dvořák, the second half included a jazz version of “Rosas Rojas para una Dama Triste” (“Red Roses for a Blue Lady”) with improvisations from the principal violinist, and an original piece for marimba and string orchestra by resident composer Lorenzo Turchi-Floris for marimba soloist Angelo di Veroli. Closing the night was 11-year-old Juan Carlos Molina performing Grieg’s “Piano Concerto.”
