New World Symphony Celebrates the Season at the Drive-In
It's officially the holiday season and New World Symphony is bringing some holiday spirit to Dezerland Park Drive-In! Experience a special WALLCAST® concert of seasonal classics recorded at the New World Center! This drive-in experience will allow families to experience Sound of the Season—the beloved New World Symphony Holiday concert—from the safety of their own cars.
The concert broadcast, which is scheduled for December 19th at 7:30 pm, will feature seasonal favorites celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah, and the most magical time of year, all pre-recorded at the New World Center. In addition to classics such as selections from The Nutcracker and Sleigh Ride, the program includes works by NWS alumni that reflect our South Florida community. Navidad Latina by Anthony DiLorenzo is a medley of Latin holiday songs and Chanukah 5776 by Sam Hyken, which honors the Jewish Festival of Lights. Both works celebrate the varied traditions observed in our community.
NWS’s annual Sounds of the Season concert is an audience favorite and frequently draws thousands to SoundScape Park for its WALLCAST® concert. This year, the audience at Dezerland Park will enjoy seeing NWS Fellows perform in holiday costumes and join the cherished finale—an audience-wide sing-a-long of “White Christmas”—from the safety of their vehicles.
Chad Goodman, the current Conducting Fellow, says “the holiday season has always been a time to slow down, connect with our loved ones, and share joy. It is a little bit harder for everyone this year, but so much more important. We hope that this concert will bring some much needed, socially distant cheer to our friends in Miami and beyond.”
In addition to the WALLCAST® concert, the evening at Dezerland Park will feature live musicians, food trucks, and special surprises (perhaps even a big guy in a red suit) to help keep everyone merry and bright!
