Miami Symphony Adds Tweet Seats to Expand Social Media Presence for Golden Sounds from Hollywood

December 2, 2012 | By Matthew Marshall

Miami, FL (December 2, 2012) – The Miami Symphony Orchestra (MISO) is reaching out to its Twitter and Facebook followers hoping to create a buzz, allowing a few select patrons to tweet and upload pictures during the upcoming Golden Sounds from Hollywood performances on December 15-16, honoring the music of John Williams with some of the most recognizable film scores in the history of motion pictures.

In what was once considered a sin in the world of classical music, MISO is reaching out to its social media-savvy audience and using “tweet seats” to enhance its social media presence.

“I think part of the live performance experience is your own individual reaction to music as if you were talking and sharing what was happening in front of you with your closest friends,” says Eduardo Marturet, Music Director and Conductor of The Miami Symphony Orchestra. “I can’t imagine a better environment to embrace this new technology than our tribute to the fantastic film scores by one of Hollywood’s hottest composers, John Williams.”

The Miami Symphony Orchestra will perform music with added visual elements from popular movies such as E.T., Superman, Jaws, Schindler’s List, Jurassic Park, and many more great film scores by Williams. Both performances begin at 8:00 p.m. on December 15 at the Wertheim Performing Arts Center (FIU) and on December 16 at New World Center on Miami Beach. To reserve a Tweet Seat for Golden Sounds from Hollywood, call the MISO box office at 305.275.5666, or email

The Miami Symphony Orchestra is Miami’s hometown professional symphony and a valuable contributor to Miami’s cultural fabric. Ambitious, accomplished, and respected far beyond the city’s boundaries, its energy and talent are significantly supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, the State of Florida Division of Cultural Affairs, the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs, and the Miami Beach Cultural Arts Council. With national and world premieres becoming more common, MISO is a source of growing local pride and support. Since 2006, the Symphony’s baton has been in the hands of Maestro Marturet. The not-for-profit Symphony conducts an in-school arts and education program for elementary school students in the Miami-Dade Public School System and provides low- or no-cost tickets to students, senior citizens, first responders, active military and veterans in South Florida.
