Free outdoor New World Symphony concerts

Experience the music of the New World Symphony in a larger-than-life format during outdoor WALLCAST concerts at Miami Beach's SoundScape Park.

You're invited, free of charge, to enjoy the sights and sounds of the symphony – just bring a blanket, some snacks and pick a spot!

The New World Symphony also now brings their free concerts to neighborhoods around Miami-Dade as part of their Mobile WALLCAST Concert Series, now in its second season.

NWS

SoundScape Park, at 500 17th St., Miami Beach, FL, features the latest in visual and audio technology on a 7,000-square-foot projection wall – providing a wonderful way to bask in live classical music.

For the 2023-2024 season, which runs from November through May, the WALLCAST concert series boasts internationally acclaimed guest conductors and artists performing alongside New World Symphony fellows. The symphony is led by newly named Artistic Director Stéphane Denève who takes over baton duties from Michael Tilson Thomas, Co-Founder and Artistic Director Laureate.
