New World Symphony
America’s orchestral academy, under the artistic direction of Michael Tilson Thomas, prepares young talented musicians for leadership roles in orchestras and ensembles around the world. When it performs at the Frank Gehry-designed New World Center, the symphony mesmerizes audiences with full- orchestra concerts, a chamber-music series, open rehearsals and small-ensemble concerts, from October to May. www. nws.edu. 500 17th St., Miami Beach, 305.673.3331.
