Most people would feel spread thin if they were running orchestras on both sides of the country. But most people aren't Michael Tilson Thomas. One of America's most famous conductors, composers, and tuxedo-wearers, Tilson Thomas has remained the artistic director of the New World Symphony since he founded it in 1987, even after becoming musical director of the San Francisco Symphony in 1995. This is because the Miami-based orchestra feeds a need for Tilson Thomas: that of remaining at the forefront of symphonic trends, in a laboratory where top musical graduates can explore performance and compositional opportunities. But new works from students and professionals aren't the only thing on the New World Symphony's docket?every year, ticket-holders can expect a thrilling lineup of the classical masters who built the genre.
What should Jewish people do on Christmas? In 1987, the creators of MatzoBall revealed their answer to that question: party. The annual holiday bash began as an event for Jewish singles on Christmas Eve, a night when many public places are traditionally closed and Santa takes over the airwaves with his State of the North Pole address. Today, MatzoBall has spread to more than 20 cities across the U.S., including Miami, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Detroit. Tailored to folks 21?49, the nationwide Christmas Eve celebration sets the stage for a night of mingling, networking, and even love?and has sparked countless friendships and marriages over the years. Even when the holiday season passes, MatzoBall continues to connect people with ongoing events year round.
