New World School of the Arts will present its first-ever Online Ensemble Concert in a virtual setting. Entitled “Resilience: A Musical Response From Our Home to Yours,” this ensemble concert showcases over 200 musicians; 180 instrumental and voice students, 11 renowned guest artists, three alumni, and more than ten faculty members and ensemble directors. The concert is a testament to NWSA’s commitment to excellence in arts education and training even in the face of adversity and unexpected challenges.
“I am proud of the work the faculty, students, guest artists, and supporters did on this project. This was an unprecedented project during unprecedented times, which made it all the more challenging, but it inspired all of us with the light of hope to guide our way forward,” said Dr. Daniel Andai, Dean of Music at NWSA. “Like any true ensemble, everyone played their part to the best of their ability amidst a pandemic and the Musical Response From Our Home to Yours, was undoubtedly one of resilience and pride that I hope everyone can enjoy for years to come. This project is only one of many examples demonstrating the importance of New World School of the Arts in our community and in the world.”
