About this Event

A night of poetry and music in the Miami Beach Botanical Garden featuring poetry by TS Eliot and music written and performed by New World Symphony Fellow Owen Ruff. This concert will ponder the relationship between words and music and how they can be blended in different ways to convey new meanings.

The evening’s schedule includes a pre-concert chat at 6pm, Owen’s concert at 7pm, and a post-concert reception at 8:15pm.

Owen Ruff is a first-year Violin Fellow at the New World Symphony and has recently played with the Milwaukee Symphony, Civic Orchestra of Chicago and Billings Symphony. Owen earned a bachelor of music degree from The University of Texas at Austin as a student of Brian Lewis and a master of music degree from Northwestern University as a student of Blair Milton.

An avid supporter of contemporary music, Owen has given the world premiere performances of Cody McVey’s Violin Concerto as soloist and Lightning Jar for solo violin, Noa Beazley’s String Quartet, and Nick Bergstrom’s Thalassophobia for violin and electronics. As composer, Owen has also premiered two works for solo violin, four electronic pieces and, most recently, a string quartet entitled Poem in Four Parts.

As a chamber musician, Owen is a founding member of the Evermore String Quartet, a musical collective that aims to perform in uncommon spaces. He has had the pleasure of working closely with the Dover, Miró, and Spektral string quartets and has also played for members of the Cavani, Jupiter, Mivos, Tesla, Vermeer and New Orford string quartets, as well as the Zodiac Trio, Fifth House Ensemble and Alarm Will Sound in master classes and coachings.

Owen has played in solo master classes for great musicians such as Robert Chen, David Kim, Giora Schmidt, Baird Dodge, Janet Sung, Paul Kantor, Joel Smirnoff and Girardo Ribeiro. He currently plays on a violin made by Robert Clemens in 2022 in St. Louis, Missouri.
