Themed Experiences
Don't just listen to the music, experience it! NWS Downtown delivers multi-sensory experiences that draw on the power of the evening's music, and includes themed beer and food offerings, pre-concert pop-up performances and more! 

New Dinner Menu, Happy Hour, and Post-Concert Dessert and Drink Options from Brad Kilgore
Arrive early and enjoy new hearty menu items such as assorted pastas and empanadas, and Happy Hour drink specials from 6:00-7:00 PM. And, after the performance, savor the memory of the music while meeting NWS Fellows and enjoying new offerings such as dessert and cordials in the lobby.

Complimentary beer sampling and delectable menu pairings
To make your night with the New World Symphony even more enjoyable, all ticketholders will be entitled to complimentary beer samples from one of Miami's favorite Wynwood-based breweries! From 6:00-7:00 PM only, be sure to visit the sampling table in the lobby and celebrate your evening in style. (Must be over 21 to drink.) Plus, make it a full-on sensory experience and taste delectable, themed food pairings by Chef Brad Kilgore.

Bring Your Drink Inside the Concert Hall
New this season, grab your beer, wine or champagne at the bar and enjoy it while you are serenaded by the New World Symphony. Drinks (without ice) will be allowed into the hall during concerts.

Enjoy an Opening Act -- More Entertainment for Your Evening
At each of the three NWS Downtown performances, experience something new prior to the New World Symphony Fellows taking the stage. From 7:00-7:30 PM, opening acts will bring you talented South Florida performers, allowing you to experience something new or enjoy an artist with whom you may already be familiar. Arrive early, grab any seat and add even more value to your NWS experience.

Talk with our Fellows in the lobby post-concert
Following the concert, ask our talented Fellows any questions you may have, or just enjoy meeting some of the brightest and most creative musicians that will soon grace the stages of orchestras and ensembles worldwide.
