MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - April 16, 2009) - The Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables today announces the Miami Symphony Orchestra will perform at its Coral Gables resort on Sunday, May 3, 2009 at 4 PM. The 40-piece orchestra, led by Music Director and Conductor Eduardo Marturer, will play a medley of old and new world classical favorites at the historic Coral Gables luxury hotel.

The Miami Symphony Orchestra's performance at the Biltmore will feature Reynaldo Hahn's "Overture Mozart"; Joaquin Rodrigo's "Concierto de Aranjuez," featuring world-renowned Spanish guitarist Angel Romero; and Jacques Ibert's "Divertissement." The concert will take place outside in the Biltmore's majestic, Mediterranean-style courtyard.

"We think the Miami Symphony Orchestra and the Biltmore Hotel are a perfect match," says Danielle Finnegan, public relations manager, Biltmore Hotel. "Their music will add to the classic style and grace of the beautiful Mediterranean architecture in our stunning courtyard. Our Coral Gables luxury hotel near Miami always provides top-of-the-line service -- we never want our guests to be anything but extremely satisfied and relaxed. And the Miami Symphony Orchestra will bring this kind of experience to our guests as well."
