The New World Symphony, America’s Orchestral Academy (NWS), prepares graduates of distinguished music programs for leadership roles in professional orchestras and ensembles. In the 29 years since its co-founding by Artistic Director Michael Tilson Thomas and Lin and Ted Arison, NWS has helped launch the careers of more than 1000 alumni worldwide.

A laboratory for the way music is taught, presented and experienced, the New World Symphony consists of 87 young musicians who are granted fellowships lasting up to three years. The fellowship program offers in-depth exposure to traditional and modern repertoire, professional development training and personalized experiences working with leading guest conductors, soloists and visiting faculty. Relationships with these artists are extended through NWS’ extensive distance learning via the internet.

Beautiful hall. The level of musicianship of the orchestra is wonderful. Attending a wallcast is a must for any native or even visitor.

Outstanding acoustics and nice interior. Seats are a little uncomfortable.

Restrained and beautiful Frank Gehry building, looking great in the Florida sunlight.

Probably the best concert hall/venue in South Florida. Intimate and elegant!

They offer free outdoor movies and concerts. It's a great place to relax and just be there, spending time with your loved ones. As they other people said, it's recommended that if you are going to be there, grab a blanket, because it might get cold (most likely since it's right there, next to the beach)
