I feel we are blessed to have the NWS here in Miami. It is great to watch these talented young musicians in the beautiful venue designed by Frank Gehry. No matter where you sit you will have a great experience.

“A great evening out.”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at New World Symphony. We stayed outside in the park, for free. We enjoyed the beautiful surroundings and excellent sound from the speakers as well as the education we got about the writer of the symphony ahead of actually hearing it. I would suggest grabbing some dinner at nearby Lincoln Rd and enjoying a picnic with your friends or loved ones as you enjoy the concert!

“Great evening out”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

This is a great place to spend part of an evening out. The facilities are modern and the space where the symphony performs is small and intimate so you get a different experience. We attended a night where they performed part of three different concertos and the conductor gave an introduction and explanation of each before they started, so it was very entertaining and educational.

“Building only”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

This place is amazing as you would expect from Frank Gehry.
We missed out on a concert but did the conducted tour which was so interesting .
To hear the reasons behind the design of this fabulous building made it all come alive.
We had 10 minutes in the concert hall which was great as we heard a bit of a rehearsal.

Marty M, Docent at New World Symphony, responded to this review, November 5, 2012
We're so happy that you enjoyed your docent-led tour of the wonderful Frank Gerhry New World Symphony (NWS) building! NWS is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, and there is no better way to appreciate the significant contribution that NWS has had on the Miami Beach cultural scene over the past quarter century than to attend an indoor concert, an outdoor "Wallcast" or to go on a guided tour of the building. Guided tours are conducted, by appointment only, on Tuesdays & Thursdays at 4 pm and Fridays & Saturdays at noon, at a nominal cost of $5 per person. Book online or at the box office.
