Have you ever listened to that beautiful Carpenters’ song that says “ Rainy days and Mondays always get me down”? but not for who lives and go around Downtown Miami. The project, called “Wake up Miami” that started on October 5th, has free live music at the Government Center Metromover Station, on Mondays at 8:30 am. This amazing program, besides bringing a different approach and feeling to the week, present classical, jazz and music by Miami based performers and FIU School of Music students.
People arriving and departing from that station, has been enjoying the different Mondays. Norma, that lives and work in the downtown area said that she could hear the sound of the music coming from the station and she was curious to know what was happening there “it was a surprise for me.. usually people come and go so quickly in their own thought, never looking to anybody else, but the music makes us stop and smile for everyone, forgetting it was Mondays…”
The PAXy – “Putting Art in the GalaXy” – “come together to promote Cultural Arts at both the local and international levels, and to educate and raise awareness of Miami’s Cultural Arts and its benefits. The group is a non-profit organization promoting and giving new performance opportunities for emerging local artists and diversifying local cultural vision through exposure to worldwide artistic elements”.
Their events include: music concerts, painting/photography/sculpture exhibitions performances, movie screenings, theatrical presentations, local and foreign cultural exchange, art related talks/seminars.
“inspiring creativity and helping the Miami community become Art Lovers and Art Makers; spreading the positive meaning of different forms of Art!”
It could not be better.
