Fellows and Patrons find love at NWS

With 30 years of beautiful music and magical moments happening at the New World Center and our old home, the Lincoln Theatre, it's easy to see why love is in the air at the New World Symphony. On this Valentine's Day, here are just a few of the many couples who've found their one true love at NWS.

Gregory Miller (Horn Fellow, 1991-94) and Laura Hilgeman (Violin Fellow, 1990-94), then and now, and their six kids.
