New World Symphony’s most generous supporters –members of the exclusive Maestro’s Circle Society– gathered at the beautiful W South Beach, for cocktails and a scrumptious dinner. Sponsored by W South Beach Hotel and Residences and Alfred Karram Jr. (AKJ) Design Concepts, and hosted by NWS’ illustrious Artistic Director Michael Tilson Thomas, the evening celebrated music, philanthropy and the organization’s brilliant future.
Guests dined on grilled filet mignon with dauphinoise potatoes and wild mushroom truffle-essence while enjoying a performance by a brass quintet of NWS Fellows playing some of Duke Ellington’s most beloved melodies. Following the dinner, everyone gathered in the cocktail reception area for dessert and mingling. Upon departure, guests were treated to a gift bag containing a stunning Nambé vase courtesy of AKJ Design Concepts.
