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!

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.
