Welcome to your weekly Miami Beach Arts & Culture guide. View below digital event highlights for the week and be sure to check out our website for all things Arts & Culture!
Artistic Director Michael Tilson Thomas and the New World Symphony announce an innovative virtual fall season for Fellows and audiences featuring leading-edge distance learning, media training, musician-led activism and entrepreneurship, livestreamed concerts, and WALLCAST® concert special events.

NWS is a laboratory for generating new ideas about how music is taught, presented, and experienced. Digital capabilities, pandemic restrictions, and a commitment to a new level of diversity and inclusion are defining the 2020-21 fellowship season. 

NWS is also reimagining its Community Engagement programs for the virtual space. Community Engagement is an important part of the New World Symphony’s mission to prepare graduates of music programs for leadership roles in orchestras and ensembles around the world. This year further helps prepare Fellows to engage with local and global communities in an online environment.

Music is powerful, perhaps now more than ever. Enjoy the music of the New World Symphony in a variety of ways throughout the 2020-21 Season. Packages allow you to experience the New World Symphony – at home and around Miami – in socially distanced, innovate formats. Bring your family and friends. Connect with others. Enjoy the fulfillment of shared cultural experience.

Included in the newly announced Art Outside program, Dan Graham’s project for Lincoln Road recalls the ‘kidney’ shape of the 1950’s Miami Beach hotel swimming pools. Both concave and convex lenses, the pavilion’s surfaces create mirroring an anamorphic ‘fun-house’ reflection of people inside perceiving themselves and other superimposed of people outside. The surfaces are simultaneously reflective and transparent.
The pavilion’s form is more baroque than minimal – as people move, their bodies are distended and in motion.
The work is child-friendly, as well as providing photo opportunities for parents and children.

The Miami Foundation, in partnership with Miami-Dade County, through its Department of Public Housing and Community Development (PHCD), is offering one-time grants to nonprofits to help provide relief to organizations impacted by the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
