The renowned New World Symphony is housed in the new Frank Gehry-designed New World Center. The venue itself 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 so you won't miss a beat. On nights the symphony plays, concerts can be heard and seen outside via sound speakers and video projections. People bring blankets, folding chairs, and a picnic, and sit back and enjoy the show in the urban SoundScape Park.
