New World Symphony Gala

NWS Gala Guests mingling in Atrium of New World Center

The New World Symphony extends its gratitude to all who supported our Twenty-ninth Anniversary Gala, Making the Connection. The event focused on the importance and impact of New World Symphony’s Community Engagement initiatives, which reach thousands of children and adults every year. Co-Founder and Artistic Director Michael Tilson Thomas was joined by six-time Tony Award-winning singer and actress Audra McDonald in a performance that highlighted three of NWS’s community engagement programs for young musicians. Guests also learned about four NWS alumni who have made community work a priority in their careers.

On behalf of Gala Chairs Stephen and Sabine Bittel and the Board of Trustees, we thank you for participating in this celebratory evening.

Please save the date for next year’s gala, February 10th, 2018, as we celebrate the milestone of our 30th anniversary. We look forward to seeing you there.

With gratitude and appreciation,
New World Symphony
