Miami Music Project Leaders Orchestra and students from other participating schools will perform and share the stage at the New World Center at the Music Lab Finale Concert. The performance will take place on Friday, May 13 at 7:00 pm at New World Symphony in Miami Beach.
Since October 2015, Miami Music Project Leaders Orchestra has worked with New World Symphony Fellows to improve their musical abilities as part of the New World Symphony Music Lab initiative. The workshop series took place at Citrus Grove Middle School, home to the Little Havana Chapter.
Introduced during New World Symphony’s 2009-10 season, Music Lab brings the New World Symphony Fellows into classrooms to offer their expertise to students in the pursuit of music performance and personal development. Alongside secondary schools, Ruth K. Broad K-8 Center, Miami Beach Senior High School and Miami Northwestern Senior High School, Miami Music Project is the only nonprofit organization to be participating with New World Symphony’s Music Lab. Miami Music Project’s students will utilize the necessary tools to further improve themselves as individual musicians, as an ensemble, and as a valued part of our community.
Miami Music Project is a local, nonprofit arts and social development organization founded by world-renowned conductor James Judd in 2008. Miami Music Project uses music as an instrument for social transformation, empowering children to acquire values and achieve their full potential, positively affecting their society through the study and performance of music. Miami Music Project provides free music education to children and youth creating a network of orchestras in Greater Miami’s most underserved communities. Leadership, teamwork, and perseverance are a few of the many skills developed in participants of the program.
