Orchestra Miami celebrates the legacy of Mana-Zucca, a legend in Miami’s music circles and a pioneering composer. Prior to moving to Miami, she was a celebrated concert pianist and singer who performed leading roles in musical comedies. After her move to Miami, she became a prolific composer, composing over 400 works, and holding weekly musicales in her home "Mazica Hall”. She was also the teacher of concert pianist and pioneer Ruth Greenfield, whom we will honor at the concert.


The Miami Woman’s Club was founded in 1900 as the "Married Ladies' Afternoon Club" just four years after Miami was incorporated. Their current newly renovated home  was designed in 1925 by August Geiger, one of the most prominent American architects in South Florida at the time, and had its grand opening in 1926 as the Flagler Memorial Library and Women’s Club. The organization provided library services for the city and worked toward the establishment of a municipal library system. The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.

Orchestra Miami's "Discover Miami Through Music" series creates opportunities for audiences to learn more about our city by experiencing specially curated concerts in our city's landmarks and places of historic interest.
