The renowned New World Symphony is housed in the new Frank Gehry-designed New World Center. The venue resembles a geode inside, with sail-like convex panels overhead. A box-like exterior has latticed glass windows and a huge projection wall. NWS is America's only full-time, post-graduate orchestral campus and laboratory. The acoustics in the semicircular concert hall are alarmingly effective, and the 756 seats are comfortable. On nights the symphony plays (season runs September through May) concerts can be heard and seen outside via sound speakers and video projections. People bring blankets, folding chairs, picnics and bottles of wine, and sit back and enjoy the show in the urban SoundScape Park.
- Best for Romantic Things to Do Because: Impress your date with tickets to a fantastic live show here, or alternately have a romantic picnic and enjoy a SoundScape show under the stars.
- Best for Things to Do in December Because: Dec. 20th and 21st, enjoy the Sounds of the Season concert (with a special Wallcast outdoor version that Saturday), celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah, even Harry Potter!
