New World Center, Michael Tilson Thomas Performance Hall
Join Fellows for a multimedia program exploring the innermost aspects of the human experience, with music and immersive visual art serving as the emotional gateways to a guided journey that ultimately celebrates our collective resilience. This performance is in partnership with Wellspring, a Miami-based non-profit counseling center and outreach ministry that provides mental health services and education in the community. Blue Waves' NWS BLUE Project team was inspired by Wellspring's intervention dealing with the emotional crisis arisen from the Surfside tragedy. Blue Waves' narrative relates the testimony of a few Wellspring therapists, on grief and the role of music in the grieving process.

Pre-Concert Guided Meditation
Before Fellows take the stage, Violin Fellow Carson Marshall will lead a guided musical meditation from 6:30-7:00 PM. Carson hopes to provide a safe space for the audience to ground themselves, explore resources and connect with their intention for the evening's concert. He will be available to connect both after this activity and after the full concert in the Atrium. This activity is open to all Blue Waves ticketholders. Click here for more information from Carson.

With a flair for inventive programming and a bold presence on stage and in the community, Chad Goodman has been praised for "bringing innovation to classical music" (Forbes).
As the Conducting Fellow of the New World Symphony, Mr. Goodman conducts on subscription, education, family and holiday programs. His program, “SPARK: How Composers Find Inspiration,” blended captivating light design and videography with engaging audience participation to explore how a composition is created and brought to life by an orchestra.
Since 2018 Mr. Goodman has served as an Assistant Conductor to the San Francisco Symphony, assisting Esa-Pekka Salonen, Manfred Honeck, Daniel Harding, Pablo Heras-Casado, Simone Young and James Gaffigan among others.
Mr. Goodman's 2022-23 Season will include debut appearances with the Elgin Symphony, Baton Rouge Symphony, Greensboro Symphony and San Francisco Chamber Orchestra.
As Founder and Artistic Director of Elevate Ensemble, Mr. Goodman’s ambitious vision for concert programming resulted in the pairing of music from Bay Area composers with underappreciated gems of the 20th and 21st centuries. Under his leadership, Elevate Ensemble established a Composer-in-Residence program and commissioned fifteen works from Bay Area composers. Elevate collaborated with photographers, videographers, poets and culinary artists, bringing new music and vibrant multi-genre experiences to unique venues such as yoga studios, historic Victorian homes and art studio warehouses.
Mr. Goodman has previously served as Conducting Fellow of Festival Napa Valley, Music Director of the Contra Costa Chamber Orchestra, Conducting Fellow of the Atlantic Music Festival, and a rehearsal and cover conductor for the San Francisco Ballet.
In addition to his performing career, he teaches young musicians the business and entrepreneurial skills needed to successfully navigate the world as a working musician in his workshop “You Earned a Music Degree. Now What?”
Mr. Goodman holds a bachelor of music degree from the Eastman School of Music and a master of music degree from San Francisco State University. His mentors include Michael Tilson Thomas, Alasdair Neale, Cyrus Ginwala and Martin Seggelke.
