MIAMI BEACH, FLORIDA – On Saturday, October 12th at 7:30 PM, the New World Symphony will celebrate the start of its 32nd season, its 100th WALLCAST® and eight-year run simultaneously. The stage is set at SoundScape Park at the New World Center at 500 17th Street in Miami Beach.
The WALLCAST will be the first of the season to be presented in the SoundScape Park, and will unveil their brand new “end-to-end 4K Ultra High Definition (UHD) technology.”
The 7,000 square feet SoundScape Park got a permanent upgrade in their delivery and capture system, in collaboration with the City of Miami Beach, that will enhance the viewers experience drastically.
The New World Symphony co-founder and Artistic Director, Michael Tilson Thomas will conduct Opening Night. Maestro Thomas is an 11-time Grammy award-winning artist and the recipient of the 2019 Kennedy Center Honors.
Kennedy Center Chairman, David M. Rubenstein said, “The Kennedy Center Honors celebrates icons who, through their artistry, have left an inedible stamp on our collective cultural consciousness.”
The New World Symphony new season is full of exciting events. Craig Hall, VP of Communications for the NWS commented, “Another highlight of the season will occur the following week, when we mount a multi-day (Oct 15-19) viola festival, featuring many of the world’s greatest violists descending upon Miami Beach for the week.”
He added, “Our Skull & Bones event on November 1st marks the return of our signature Late Night at the New World Symphony series, which have become South Florida’s favorite late night cultural event (it only happens twice a year).”
Another highlight of the season, not to be missed, will be their holiday WALLCAST in December in collaboration with the City of Miami Beach. As well, as many other events the organization has lined up for 2020.
In addition to WALLCAST concerts, weekly films are shown free-of-charge on the wall as part of the City of Miami Beach’s SoundScape Cinema Series.
Admission is free for the SoundScape Park events, while tickets to the New World Symphony concerts vary in price accordingly.
