Symphony of the Americas celebrates The Women of Symphonic Music with The Symphony Classics program, “Trailblazers!” on Tuesday, Jan. 9, at Broward Center for Performing Arts Amaturo Theater. Conducted by Symphony of the Americas Music Director Pablo Mielgo, the program highlights the role of women in their different historical expressions over a 200-year timespan.

Internationally acclaimed Jeanette Vecchione-Donatti, an Italian American soprano from New York and now a South Florida resident, joins the Symphony as a guest artist. Ms. Donatti has appeared as a soloist in concerts at many prestigious venues, including Carnegie Hall. She made her operatic stage debut as Juliette in Romeo et Juliette and Micaela in Carmen.

The “bookend” approach to “Trailblazers!” compares styles and sounds, intertwining the influence of composers and their themes. Grammy and Pulitzer Prize recipient, Jennifer Higdon, an icon of current contemporary American composition, presents Blue Cathedral – an ode to her brother. The program will conclude with the first symphony by the great American composer of the 20th century, Florence Price. Price is the first Black American classical composer. Her Symphony n.1 is inspired by both Western classical tradition and Black musical idioms.

Individual tickets range from $35 to $75 and can be purchased in advance online at or Broward Center Box Office: 954-462-0222.
