Before airport security became so stringent, it was a common event to see someone welcomed at the airport by family or friends with cheers and signs. Today, not so much.
Now, image the surprise of being greeted by a 90-piece orchestra as you arrive at your destination. Recent travelers at The Miami International Airport got that kind of special welcomed by a live performance of The Miami Symphony Orchestra (MISO).
The performance was part of the orchestra’s Music in Unsuspected Spaces program and cost about $40,000
For two hours, the 90-piece ensemble — and Russian-born pianist Yury Shadrin — played the music of Johannes Brahms and Sergei Rachmaninoff and Antonin Dvorak as passengers, pilots and flight attendants passed through the terminal. They came from near and far: Panama City, Frankfurt, Rome and Cap-Haitien in Haiti. – Miami Herald
