If you were among the lucky 800 patrons tapping toes and clapping to the Glenn Miller Orchestra two weeks ago, you already know that a world-class entertainment experience can be had right here in the Florida Keys. On Saturday night, Feb. 9, in Islamorada, and on Monday night, Feb. 11, in Marathon, the Florida Keys Concert Association will do it again. Frederick Moyer, an audience favorite for over 30 years, will perform classical pieces ranging from Brahms to Liszt, with artistry, enthusiasm and a sense of humor.
Audiences love his interactive commentary from the stage. He has been known to create an on-the-spot concerto from an audience member’s phone number. Surprises abound.
Moyer also performs Sunday in Key West at 4 p.m. at St. Paul's Episcopal Church, 401 Duval Street as part of the Impromptu Classical Concerts of Key West. Tickets are $20. (Visit
Moyer has carved out a vital career that has taken him to 41 countries and far-flung venues from Suntory Hall in Tokyo, the Sydney Opera House, and Windsor Castle in London, to New York’s Kennedy Center. In the 14 years that Brownie Ballard shepherded her South Florida Center for the Arts music series in the Upper Keys, Moyer appeared three times, always to standing ovations. This will be his fourth appearance in the Keys.
Florida Keys Concert Association tickets can be purchased for $25 in Marathon at Food For Thought, and in the Upper Keys at The Key Largo Art Gallery (451-0052, Mile Marker 103.3) and Artamorada Gallery at the Rain Barrel Artists’ Village (852-5833, MM 86.6). Doors open at 7 p.m. and the concerts begin at 7:30 p.m. The Marathon concert takes place at the San Pablo Church, MM 52, and the Upper Keys Concert takes place in Islamorada at the Island Community Church, MM 83.3.
