Event Details

The Betsy Hotel is proud,  as a member of the Ocean Drive Association, to actively partner in presenting a concert on the Ocean Drive Promenade every Sunday evening. These concerts are free - and we encourage our guests to bring blankets or a folding chair, if possible.  Seating is also available on the grass. 

Beachside A Cappella led by Cindy and Ryan Ellis

This program features four outstanding REGIONAL (award winning) a cappella groups, including an award-winning ensemble from the Miami Dade County Public Schools Arts magnet,  Zelda Glazer; this group was featured on the CNN GLOBAL July 4 special with Gloria Estefan and also appeared in LA as a special guest of President Joe Biden at the Summit of the Americas. 

Career music educators (both grads of FIU) Cindy and Ryan Ellis, now direct one of the leading school-based a cappella programs in the region, and were co-creators of the high school component of The Betsy’s A Cappella Festival (20015-19) which seeded their program and many other regional a cappella initiatives.  

Bursting onto the serious concert scene on the heels of the success of the Pitch Perfect Movies and the success of the Pentatonx, a cappella music is a performance by a singer or a singing group without accompaniment.  This performance will be amplified.
