What You'll Get
- $15 for one general-admission ticket (up to $31 value)
- Mussorgsky—Pictures at an Exhibition: Instantly recognizable for the stately “Promenade” that guides ears through aural renderings of 10 paintings, each with its own distinctive colors and personality. Listeners may feel the same ecstasy that its composer did: “Ideas, melodies, come to me of their own accord. Like roast pigeons in the story, I gorge and gorge and over-eat myself. I can hardly manage to put it all down on paper fast enough.”
- The Experience: Stunning animated vignettes project above the orchestra as the aural exhibition flits from one canvas to the next. The result is a unified work that is presented in both historical and musical context.
- Notable Guests: Jaime Bernstein, daughter of Leonard Bernstein and actress Felicia Montealegre, hosts the evening with the passion of a life devoted to music and the skills honed by broadcasting for the BBC. New World Symphony’s Conducting Fellow Dean Whiteside takes up the baton.

About New World Symphony
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.
