To start off the 2018/19 academic season, New World Symphony co-founder and artistic director Michael Tilson Thomas makes a special appearance at the orchestra’s Bernstein celebration. The program, Unanswered Questions: A Bernstein Journey, is hosted at Miami Beach’s New World Center on October 6.
The program asks three overarching questions about Bernstein’s life and work: “How to Live?”, “What to Believe?”, and “What is Music?” Edwin Outwater conducts the NWS with Jamie Bernstein as host and narrator. The evening – featuring excerpts from West Side Story, Candide, the First Symphony, Arias and Barcarolles, and more – spotlights performances by soprano Christine Taylor Price, mezzo-soprano Annie Rosen, baritone Emmett O’Hanlon, and violinist Dillon Welch.
