Members of the Aventura Marketing Council (AMC), the community’s premier not-for-profit business organization, have partnered with the South Florida Symphony on a Membership “Thank You” program where everyone wins.
The Council, now celebrating its 25th anniversary, continues to grow through member referrals. As a way of thanking their members for keeping the organization strong, for every new member, the referring member will receive four VIP tickets (value $220) to a magnificent concert by the South Florida Symphony Orchestra on Tuesday, November 19th, at the Aventura Arts & Cultural Center.
Andrew Waxman, Senior Vice President of Mercantil Commercebank, has already won eight tickets. “I recommend membership in the AMC because I find it extremely rare to be a part of a networking group that can provide regular interaction with high- level business owners and key decision makers. I’ve been able to grow my business, and I think my clients and contacts in the community could benefit as well.”
Julie Baroniel, Financial Advisor with Mass Mutual, has referred three new members to date, winning twelve tickets to the November 19th symphony performance. Julie is already thinking of additional businesses she can refer, and said, “I recommend the Aventura Marketing Council because I feel very comfortable when I come to their meetings — that’s why I decided to join! I believe in AMC so much that I have my clients, also friends, joining because I think it will be as beneficial for them as it has been for me.”
The AMC has almost 500 companies and organizations throughout South Florida as members, and provides 8 – 10 FREE networking opportunities every month, from their Breakfast Meetings with 200 members attending to their famous SpeedBiz offering the best one-on-one networking in town, to the extremely valuable Technology Committee where members can recoup their membership investment immediately with the free advice given. AMC members understand the benefits of membership!
Peabody-trained Artistic Director and Conductor, Sebrina Maria Alfonso, will be directing the November 19th concert “A Soul Unfettered,” featuring the music of Elgar (Introduction & Allegro for Strings); Barber (Cello Concerto, Opus 22); and Schubert (Symphony No. 9 “The Great”), as well as another two concerts at the Aventura Arts & Cultural Center on February 1st and March 28th.
Alfonso founded the orchestra as her dream of bringing classical music to Key West where she was born and raised. As the first Cuban-American to be invited to conduct Cuba’s premiere orchestra where she received standing ovations, she has become a great advocate for American music.
Now in its 16th season, the orchestra has expanded its programming to include Miami-Dade (Aventura), Broward (Fort Lauderdale) and Palm Beach (Delray Beach) venues for performances. The orchestra provides educational events, including free concerts reaching over 2,000 elementary schoolchildren through its Symphony in the Schools Program, currently only available in Palm Beach, but planning to expand to other counties. They also understand the value of partnering with outstanding artists, such as the Vienna Boys Choir this past February and Zuill Bailey, one of the premiere cellists in the world.
