Here’s another look at the ultra glam MISO gala, a more relaxed, colorful affair this year because it was a Blues Brunch instead. Most everyone went to great lengths to wear the suggested attire of big hats and bow ties. An inspired idea from the advisory board’s luncheon chairs, Criselda Breene, Iran Issa-Khan and Sam Robin — and these girls know how to do a party.

The brunch was held at one of my favorite places, Juvia restaurant, high atop the award-winning 1111 Lincoln Road building, where there’s a jaw-dropping view of South Beach in addition to the creative cuisine. Our society ladies went all out with intricate hats and fascinators showing a serious commitment to fashion. The dapper gents weren’t far behind, with an assortment of chapeaux that ran the gamut from Panama hats to fedoras, combined with many a snappy bow tie. A jazz quartet comprised of MISO musicians played live jazz as we mingled, downed rivers of champers and table-hopped in between bites of Juvia’s exquisite signature dishes, a fusion of French, Japanese and Peruvian cooking styles.

MISO’s conductor, Maestro Eduardo Marturet, a tour de force in music and his very glamorous actress wife, Athina Klioumi Marturet, were as ever, the most gracious, entertaining hosts. Sponsors included designers Silvia Tcherrasi, Angel Sanchez and the Ritz-Carlton Residences.

The MISO has existed in South Florida for over a quarter century and has developed a distinct musical voice under the baton of Maestro Marturet by performing an increasing number of national and world premieres. The not-for-profit symphony conducts arts and education programs for students in the Miami-Dade Public School System and provides low and no-cost concert tickets to students, senior citizens, first responders, active military and veterans in South Florida.  www.themiso.org
