New World Symphony to live-stream premiere of crowdsourced work

Posted on: October 19, 2017

Project 305, a nearly yearlong project to crowdsource a symphony and accompanying film about Miami by its residents, will culminate in a free concert celebrating the diversity of Miami-Dade County on Saturday, October 21, 7:30 p.m. at the New World Center in Miami Beach, Florida. The project is a collaboration of the New World Symphony, Knight Foundation, the MIT Media Lab, and Miami-Dade County. The crowdsourced work, composed by Ted Hearne with film by Jonathan David Kane, is titled Miami in Movements. The piece will be conducted by NWS Artistic Director Michael Tilson Thomas and performed by the New World Symphony to close the concert, preceded by Gershwin’s Cuban Overture. The first half of the concert will feature Miami-based musical ensembles including Picadillo, with vocalists Sol Ruiz and Rey Rodríguez, and the Barry Bucaneiros, a Brazilian drumming ensemble. The concert will be streamed via Facebook Live and YouTube and projected onto the exterior of the New World Center for audiences in the adjacent park. Audiences online and in the park will see the new work’s film as well as live video from the concert hall. To watch the performance on Facebook Live, visit
