NWS In The News: October
The beginning of New World Symphony's 2015-2016 season has merited press coverage of both the opening and subsequent concerts this month, as well as looking forward to the entire season.
Most recently, South Florida Classical review extolled the talents of NWS: "The ensemble has rarely sounded better than it did Saturday night at the Arsht Center, offering finely textured Beethoven and a sensational performance of a major American symphony under the baton of artistic director Michael Tilson Thomas."
SFCR has also praised other performances from this month:
