When it comes to the arts, here's one of the coolest events to start the year off right. The New World Symphony (NWS) continues its community-centered Mobile WALLCAST Concert Series on Saturday, January 7 with Family Music Day at the AHCAC in Liberty City. Families are invited to experience an arts-filled afternoon with visual and performing arts activities presented by some of Miami’s own local artists and arts organizations.
This event is free to the public and all ages are welcome. For more information, visit www.nws.edu/family. “The African Heritage Cultural Arts Center is a vital hub of arts education and access for Miami-Dade's Black community," said Eduardo Delgado, Public Programs Director. "New World Symphony is grateful for the opportunity to partner with AHCAC to celebrate the transformational power of music with Liberty City families.”

NWS and the AHCAC have partnered to curate a multi-disciplinary arts festival focused on youth education through an artistic lens. Festival activities include musical story readings, hands-on workshops, and live performances featuring the New Canon Chamber Collective, Young Musicians Unite’s jazz ensemble, members of NWS’s College Track Mentorship program and NWS Fellows.
The evening culminates with NWS’s second Mobile WALLCAST® Concert. The New World Symphony’s groundbreaking WALLCAST® Concerts allow concertgoers to experience great music while enjoying an evening under the stars in SoundScape Park. The Mobile WALLCAST®, first unveiled at Portia Dunkley
SoundScape Park in May 2022, is bringing the WALLCAST® experience on the road and into communities around Miami. NWS’s College Track Mentorship Program serves young classical instrumental musicians (grades 8-12) from backgrounds underrepresented and underserved in classical music.
