The free outdoor concerts are live-streamed onto the wall of the Symphony Hall. The New World Symphony members are fantastic, the program was musically inventive and interspersed with video clips of the talented players, and conducted by MTT (Michael Tilson Thomas). Don't miss it!

Last night we attended yet another magnificent program at the New World Symphony -- America's Orchestral Academy, featuring works by Stravinsky, Schoenberg, and more. This orchestra features the best and brightest young, professional musicians on the planet, mentored and conducted by the incomparable MTT (Michael Tilson Thomas). Did I mention that the concert was free? Yes! Bring a blanket and... More

These guys truly are awesome. Seriously don't waste a trip to Miami by not checking them out. I'm not usually that into the arts & culture side of things, but these guys have converted me!

Obviously, I am formerly from NYC. Been living in the Miami area for over 30 years now and so delighted to have centers like the New World Symphony now. The building itself is quite amazing and the accoustics are very good. We enjoyed the concert as well as the tour of the venue. Highly recommend.

The New World Center is spectacular! I had the privilege of attending a concert of the Sphinx Virtuosi~ Americana during my short stay in Miami! Breathtaking performance!!! Excellent acoustics in an intimate venue. The next evening, I enjoyed Captain America 2 "under the stars" in the adjacent SoundScape Park- what a fun time. Two amazing experiences that I will treasure... More

Excellent venue, state of the art sound, beautiful surroundings, and more! the New World Symphony is an incredible addition to the Miami Beach scene, it is for those who are not looking to just come to the beach for clubbing. The wall-casts are unique in the world and it is totally worth catching one at least once per year.

There is not a bad seat, and the performances are wallcast in the adjacent SoundScape Park at no cost! Enjoy.
