The Composer is Dead
Filmed Live at Pinecrest Gardens on October 15, 2017

A COMPOSER is found dead, and the concert must go on! What are we to do? Why, we call the INSPECTOR, who must quiz the orchestra to found out exactly what went on! Was it the brass instruments? Was it the Bassoons??

Find out as Orchestra Miami presents The Composer is Dead, a murder mystery for the whole family from the twisted mind of Lemony Snicket!! This hysterically funny, tongue-in-cheek introduction to the orchestra, with music by Nathaniel Stookey, is performed by the 46 musicians of Orchestra Miami, conducted by Elaine Rinaldi.


To set the scene of mystery and murder, the orchestra also performs Mussorgsky’s “Night on Bald Mountain” & Berlioz’s chilling “March to the Scaffold” from Symphonie Fantastique.
