Watch and listen as these Miami kids get to play with Carnegie Hall’s NYO2 students
Classical music is hip again — at least in Miami, where audiences pack the seats for performances by Nu-Deco Ensemble and the New World Symphony. Saturday, fans can catch the next generation of stars from Carnegie Hall’s NY02 80-member youth orchestra featuring instrumentalists ages 14-17.
The performance is part the group’s summer residency with the New World Symphony. The young musicials hail from across the country and include violinist Jiddu Vega, cellist Anthony De Pena, bassist Ethan S. Olaguibel, all from Miami, and trombonist Luis Cortez of Weston.
The week has included training with NWS fellows and alumni and sessions with the Greater Miami Youth Symphony’s summer campers at Ponce de Leon Middle School in Coral Gables.
It culminates in a Saturday night performance and Wallcast in SoundScape Park in Miami Beach under the direction of Carlos Miguel Prieto with violinist Gil Shaham as soloist. Concert: 8:30 p.m., New World Symphony, 500 17th Street; tickets for in-hall seating, $30; outdoor Wallcast free. 305-680-5866; nws.edu.
