The New World Symphony Gala kicks off the Academy Awards™ weekend with An Evening of Suspense: Music and Scenes from Films of Alfred Hitchcock, a spectacular celebration inspired by one of Hollywood’s most legendary directors. Join Michael Tilson Thomas and the New World Symphony on a suspense-filled musical journey through Hitchcock’s classic films, presented with live orchestral accompaniment. Enjoy Welcome Cocktails at 6:30 p.m., the concert at 7:30, and a seated dinner staged throughout various spaces within the New World Center, which will be transformed for the occasion into a cinematic playground, evoking the golden age of Hollywood and sophisticated allure of Film Noir. In addition to delectable cuisine and enchanting décor, special musical interludes will be performed by the New World Symphony Fellows. Then at 10 p.m. everyone will return to the Performance Hall, transported back in time to a 1940s jazz club, ready to dance the night away. The Gala Host Committee members are Louis Aguirre, Sarah Arison, Matthew and Jennifer Buttrick, Adam and Chanin Carlin, Chad and Ilona Oppenheim, Clara Sredni and Mitchell and Elizabeth Taylor.
Single tickets are $1,250, and tables are $10,000, $25,000, $50,000 and $100,000. All proceeds will benefit New World Symphony and its mission of preparing gifted young musicians for careers in professional orchestras, while providing meaningful cultural programs to the South Florida community.
