Kind of a slow day around the South Florida blogosphere today but I still have 3 fine posts for you to check out this evening. Enjoy your Sift!
A- Taking a cue from an Eye on Miami piece this morning, Random Pixels assembles a damning compilation of Herald support for the Marlin's new stadium.
Because if you were able to go back 5 or 6 years, you'd be able to read stuff like this; Herald editorials that offer incontrovertible proof that the paper aided and abetted Jeffrey Loria and David Samson in their Fleecing of Miami.B- South Florida Classical Review gives it up for the Cleveland Orchestra's first performance of the season in South Florida.
The Cleveland players were in top form, with tight and precise ensemble. From the emphatic opening horn calls, the burnished brass tones recalled the sound of such fabled European ensembles as the Berlin and Vienna philharmonics. In the extended trombone solos of the lengthy first movement, Massimo La Rosa played with an intense fervor that vividly channeled Mahler’s darker visions, his sound golden and sonorous. The lean, elegant violin solos of concertmaster William Preucil were rendered in honeyed Viennese hues.C- Bark Bark Woof Woof takes a trip down memory lane at the Miami International Auto Show.
