This event marks the New World Symphony’s first ever worldwide video-streamed concert, and will premiere on IDAGIO, the Official Audio Streaming Partner of the NWS. After the performance, MTT will join Tabea Zimmerman and Steven Mackey for a live greenroom Q&A, where the trio will answer questions submitted by audience members.
