Marquis, downtown’s newest luxury condominium and hotel tower, and the Title Sponsor of Friends of New World Symphony, presents the NWS’ first performance at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of the 2009/2010 season on Saturday, October 24. The Master Chorale of South Florida, University of Miami Frost Chorale and four renowned vocal soloists will join Michael Tilson Thomas and NWS on stage to perform Beethoven’s 9th Symphony. The performance -one of the highlights of the South Florida concert season- will be followed by a famed NWS Friends After Hours celebration next door at the Third Floor Luxe Lounge of Marquis. There will be a live musical performance at the After Hours, featuring The Green Room, classified as “Rock a la U2 meets Franz Ferdinand meets Muse.” The show will be one part DJ, one part original classical music, and one part rock band – all in one stage, all in one night, and all in one performance. Attendees will also enjoy an open bar, light bites and free valet parking.

After Hours is complimentary for Friends members and $40 for Non-members. Concert tickets range from $25-$79. After Hours members get a 10 percent discount, VIP members get complimentary tickets (and a 20 percent discount on additional ticket purchases). After Hours valet is complimentary.
