HANDEL'S "WATER MUSIC" BOAT TOUR
As part of the Miami River Commission's 20th annual Miami RiverDay, Tigertail will help bring focus to the Miami River and the need to improve and keep our river clean and viable. Tigertail events will include a performance of Handel's "Water Music," by musicians on a boat traveling up and down the river and an artist boat flotilla.
The day's Tigertail events will also include a special presentation given by Rev. Houston R. Cypress of the Otter Clan of the Miccosukee Tribe at the elegant Miccosukee Embassy located on a Miami River inlet.
1:00 & 2:00PM: Handel's "Water Music"
Two free boat tours on the MT Celebration. Aboard all will enjoy Handel's "Water Music" performed from the top deck by the FIU Water Music Chamber Ensemble, conducted by Robert Davidovici. The work premiered in 1717 on a barge on the River Thames, where it provided entertainment for a royal cruise hosted by King George of England. Can also be enjoyed from the riverbank.
