Hope for the future of classical music!

If you fear for the future of classical music, be consoled that there exists an academy such as the New World Symphony!

A spectacular Frank Gehry venue, an unforgettable performance with top class soloists. Yet, the best thing was the program, called Mixtape. A potpurri of everything, from Ravel to Hi Hop, through jazz and classics. Great night. Will definitely come back for another program

The New World Symphony is a first class music acadamy for music students to perfect their music skills with one and two year full scholarships for those students accepted into the program. Patrons pay money to attend the Symphonies but outside on a lawn is the same opportunity to view what is happening inside. The New World Wall-Cast is a... More

Attended our first Saturday evening Wallcast of the New World Symphony with a program of Tchaikovsky and Stravinsky! Getting there more than an hour before the concert was a very good idea. We spread out, enjoyed a picnic, sipped a glass of wine and let the music wash over us as the stars came out. The incredible surround-sound system transports... More

Simply put: the best thing about Miami Beach. A beautiful idea which allows young artists to develop their passion and follow their bliss--and we get to witness this. How blessed are we! The venue is stunning as well. There are lots of opportunities for all to enjoy and support this treasure.

NWS is one of the few cultural gems on South Beach. The amazing architecture outside and interiors are breathtaking. The "wall" outside for viewing performances and movies is so novel and fun for wine and cheese get togethers makes the NWS an integral part of the community. Tickets are not very expensive and performances are world class. A must see... More

This Frank Gehry masterpiece is a great asset of Miami Beach and should not be missed. The interior is unique and seats guests in quite a setting. Try to see one of the great performances here. In the evening the changing light projections on tHe exterior surfaces make this building one to visit often.
