Enjoying the Cultural Lifestyle of Miami
Miami is a city full of inspiration, and is appropriately home to numerous entertainment venues, theaters, museums, parks and performing arts centers. With world-renowned venues just outside your door, there is no excuse for residents to lead anything less than a culturally dynamic lifestyle.
New World Symphony
Established in 1987 under the artistic direction of Michael Tilson Thomas, this unique educational environment prepares graduates of distinguished music programs for leadership positions in orchestras and ensembles around the world. Miami’s New World Symphony has performed in such prestigious venues as New York’s Carnegie Hall and Avery Fisher Hall, London’s Barbican Centre, Paris’s Bastille Opera and Argentina’s Teatro Colon. What’s more, the New World Center is less than 10 minutes from exciting apartments and condominiums in downtown Miami and Brickell, giving residents an opportunity to attend concert series, unique WALLCASTAï¿½ experiences, as well as family-friendly performances.
Miami Art Museum
The city’s thriving community of artists, designers, and collectors, as well as an ever-expanding culturally aware population, has driven Miami’s demand for a world-class museum. Currently located in downtown Miami’s cultural plaza, The Miami Art Museum (MAM) serves one of the most diverse and vibrant regions of the country, and dedicates itself to contemporary art. The new Miami Art Museum, scheduled to open in 2012, will serve as an anchor for the 29-acre Museum Park. A Science Museum is scheduled to open the following year in what is sure to become the city’s cultural hub. Museum Park will overlook Biscayne Bay and include landscaped public gardens and sculpture installations. The museum hosts docent-led tours, educational programs for both adults and children, as well as social cocktail hours and events.
Adrienne Arsht Center for Performing Arts
The Adrienne Arsht Center for Performing Arts is headquarters and home to the Miami City Ballet and the Florida Grand Opera, as well as the second-largest performing arts center in the United States. The Adrienne Arsht Center enlightens, educates and entertains the Greater Miami-Dade community’s cultural life through transformational arts and cultural experiences. PRELUDE by Barton G., a contemporary American cuisine restaurant located inside the Center, provides an inspiring pre-show dinner or cocktail. The new culinary hotspot is receiving rave reviews for its wine list and inspired dishes, including a Madeira glazed duck confit and an almond-crusted rainbow trout.
Don’t forget to catch a Miami Heat game with LeBron James, Dwayne Wade, and Chris Bosh. AmericanAirlines Arena is located just a couple blocks south of The Adrienne Arsht Center for Performing Arts.
