Photographs of Grand Opening of New World Center and Miami Beach SoundScape on 1/25/11

Grand Opening of New World Center and Miami Beach SoundScape on  Tuesday, January 25, 2011.  What a wonderful night for the grand opening of the New World Center and the building is beautiful and the sound is amazing.  I so much enjoyed the program that they put together.

The Grand Opening Ceremony of the New World Center included remarks from New World Symphony leadership, architect Frank Gehry, video presentations and a performance program including the New World Symphony Conductor, Michael Tilson Thomas and Teddy Abrams, conducting the following: Giovanni Gabrieli: The National Anthem, Canzon septimi toni a 8, No. 2 (c.1597), Alberto Ginastera: Malambo from Estancia (1941), Johann Sebastian Bach/arr. Teddy Abrams: Prelude from Cello Suite No. 2 in D minor (c.1720) (Teddy Abrams, conductor), George Gershwin: An American in Paris (1928) and Mikhail Ivanovich Glinka: Overture to Ruslan and Ludmilla

Next the festivies extend outdoors with the unveiling of a  New World Symphony-commissioned, site-specific video mural on the New World Center’s projection wall by artist and filmmaker Tal Rosner and artist C.E.B. Reas. Conceived as an actual part of the building, Chronograph takes its inspiration from the buildings structure and the surrounding historical art deco neighborhood of Miami Beach. Concluding the night with a performance by Tiempo Libre, the three-time Grammy-nominated Latin band.
