We are watching and listening to a Wallcast on a 7 story wall while sitting on the lawn with surround sound on Miami Beach, under a full moon. Absolutely delightful and I know nothing about classical music.I am writing this during the intermission. The weather is perfect.

I adored appreciating the shape of the gardens and its acoustics, besides its archicteture. Stay there as much as you can, enjoying as the fabulous details of the buildings.

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!

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

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.
