Pulse is a once-a-year cross-genre event at the New World Center.Â Pulse 2.0 featured Miami-based DJ Sean DrakeÂ who joined the New World Symphony for an amazingly unique musical night. Pulse also featured a vocalist for the first time – world renowned-native Miami soprano Elaine Alvarez, her celestial voice reverberated throughout the adoring crowdÂ Â The event was designed to integrate contemporary classical music with electronic music into an evening-long presentation to help attract new audiences to the art form. Mission accomplished, Pulse.Â The crowd was an eclectic mix of Miami socialites, icons, art fanciers, musicians and music lovers.
DJ Sean Drake was spinning lounge music in between the two sets of classical music, the first which featured music by American composers, and the second by Latin-American composers. The nightÂ concluded with DJ Drakeâ€™s last setâ€”an surreal dance party in the main performance hall.Â It was a blast and a half! Definitely looking forward to Pulse 3.0.
