The Frost School of Music at the University of Miami is excited to announce the FROST MUSIC LIVE concert series, as it returns to "live," with a dazzling array of performances for the 2021-22 season. September 15th 2021 launches the jazz concert portion of the season with legendary 7-time GRAMMY winner Christian McBride performing with the Frost Concert Jazz and Studio Band. Frost faculty multi GRAMMY® winners Dafnis Prieto and Brian Lynch performing with the Frost Latin Jazz Orchestra will conclude the season on April 27, 2022.

FROST MUSIC LIVE brings world class music to our community with performances by renowned and award winning Frost School of Music faculty, alumni and guest artists, performing with our brilliant students. The series also provides students with priceless real-world performance experiences and masterclasses with the visiting artists.

While most concerts continue to be presented in UM Gusman Concert Hall on the school's Coral Gables campus, this year's schedule also features concerts off campus. They include two jazz concerts at the Adrienne Arsht Center which are in conjunction with the Jazz Roots Series for which Frost School Dean Shelly Berg is artistic advisor: one will feature famed Cuban pianist Chucho Valdés and the second with Brazilian vocalist Luciana Souza. Please note: Concerts that take place on the University campus, will be live-streamed on the Frost School of Music YouTube channel.

"Words cannot express how much I missed seeing our patrons in our concert halls," states Dean Shelly Berg. "This year's Frost Music Live series brings the music back to live attendees in stunning, Frost-worthy fashion, with an array of music from established masterpieces to cutting-edge world premieres. I look forward to seeing audiences, safely, in person, at our performance halls. Their attendance means the world to all of us at Frost, especially, our students."
