New World Symphony, Miami Beach

4.8
The New World Center is a concert hall in the South Beach section of Miami Beach, Florida, that is designed by Frank Gehry. It is the home of the New World Symphony, with a capacity of 756 seats. It opened in January 2011.Located one block north of Lincoln Road in the South Beach stretch of Miami Beach, the building also features a new 2.5-acre public park next to it, designed by the firm West 8 (after Gehry relinquished the job following a budget reduction). A half acre of that is the SoundScape area, which allows outside visitors to experience live, free "wallcasts" of select events throughout the season through the use of visual and audio technology on a 7000sqft projection wall. Such wallcasts are planned to occur at least twice a month. A sound system incorporating 167 individually tuned speakers augments the high-definition video presentation. During performances, QR codes are shown to enable the outside audience to scan them and obtain more information about the work in question. In addition to live broadcasts of events inside, works in the video arts themselves can be shown on the wall, including those produced during the Art Basel Miami Beach event. The projection wall is said to be the largest permanently established projection surface in North America.Over a thousand people watched the wallcasts during each of the performances in the center's opening week. By the end of the park's first year, The Miami Herald wrote that the free films, video art, and concert wallcasts there had "produced a much-needed sense of community."

  • Terminal West is Atlanta's flagship mid size venue. It has hosted some of the most memorable music events in the past 2 years, and is staffed with the utmost professional staff. No matter what genre of music you like, you'll be in for a treat with the state of the art sound system and great selection of food/beverages.
  • OMG, this was so much fun, even on a weeknight! The guys playing dueling pianos rotated with other instruments and musicians and the music was mostly requests. They really know how to get everyone having fun, and it was almost hard to go home. Don't miss it.
