On Saturday, February 23, the New World Symphony will celebrate its 25th Anniversary with a Black Tie Gala honoring Michael Tilson Thomas, its Founder and Artistic Director. The centerpiece of the evening is a concert featuring works by Leonard Bernstein – including excerpts from West Side Story – performed by the New World Symphony under MTT’s baton, with Jessica Rivera and Dimitri Pittas starring as Maria and Tony, respectively.
The concert includes performances by NWS Fellows and is followed by a dinner at the New World Center. After dinner, the Performance Hall will be reopened for “Big Band Swing,” a 1950s-style party featuring Michael Andrew and the Atomic Big Band.
