Premiere event of the New World Symphony at Miami Beach's Soundscape Park. A thrilling classical performance of selections from Tchaikovsky's Romeo and Juliet. So good to be back at a live event - albeit the concert originally took place in 2019 - sitting socially distanced from real people with whom it was possible to share the experience. The music fired the imagination and swept away so many dark days. We are reminded - it's beginning to feel a lot like new normal!!
Miami Beach has become famous worldwide not only as a beach destination but for its Arts and Culture - the event was sponsored y Carnival corporation - even as they fight to rebuild their devastated travel business and await the day when they can get their ships back to sea.
The human spirit truly is indominatable. Culture civilises and defines a nation. Our souls are restored. We can begin to heal.
