HONOR THE FOUNDER
Miami Herald
From Letter to Editor, Ruth Greenfield, Miami

Jordan Levin’s Arts Pioneers commendably spotlights the visual and performing arts born here in the 1980s. But one pioneer is missing. In 1987, Loretta Dranoff created The Dranoff International 2 Piano Foundation and returned four-hand piano to center stage, in the first competition of its kind in the Americas.

LORETTA DRANOFF REMEMBERED
Miami Herald
From Letter to Editor,
Gabriele Fiorentino, President, The Dranoff

Thank you, Jordan Levin, for the reflections on Miami’s maturation from Paradise Lost to Paradise Sought in the Sept. 13 article Arts Pioneers article in the Season of the Arts issue.

I particularly appreciate the focus on the stellar individuals who labored in the proverbial dark for so many years, pushing culture forward. But there were others as well.

MIAMI'S MUSIC SCENE IS BOOMING
By Erik Ochsner, Artistic Director of the Dranoff 2 Piano Foundation

South Florida and the performing arts — who knew just how amazing? Art Basel has helped draw the world’s attention to Miami’s dynamic graphic arts scene. Less noticed is the role of the performing arts, in particular music, in Miami’s cultural life. I live in New York City, but I conduct orchestras all over the world — from Finland to New Zealand to France to China, to name a few. What has been bringing me to Miami for the past two years is my position as artistic director of the Dranoff 2 Piano Foundation, a homegrown Miami institution with global reach.
