Miami Beach has long been touted as a top destination for its miles of world-class beaches and famed nightlife. This year, travelers seeking a getaway with a side of cultural enrichment can dive-in, head first, with a variety of unique shows and experiences that showcase Miami Beach’s artistic side. With a diverse March calendar packed with cabaret dinner shows and symphonic masterpieces, guests visiting Miami Beach this month will have no shortage of events to enjoy.
“In addition to a vibrant beach and night life scene, Miami Beach also offers a collection of cultural events that span music, theater and performing arts,” says Peggy Benua, Chair of the Miami Beach Visitor and Convention Authority (MBVCA). “From the New World Symphony’s complimentary WALLCAST Concert to this month’s Miami Beach Youth Music Festival, visitors and locals have the opportunity to experience our special local talent, firsthand.”
An array of performing arts and theater venues call Miami Beach home, including The Colony Theatre and the New World Center, offering stunning sensory-awakening performances. The New World Symphony’s free WALLCAST concert series is premiering a show of the “Symphonic Giants” on March 25th. The WALLCAST concerts are free and open to the public and projected on the soaring 7,000-square-foot wall of the New World Center at SoundScape Park.
In the Faena District, the cabaret-styled “C’est Rouge!” dinner show, the illusion performance “Magique: Experience the Illusion”, and the “Return to Tomorrow” art exhibit are all being showcased this month. Though a newcomer to the Miami Beach arts scene, The Faena District has quickly become a cultural cornerstone, featuring attractions such as the Old Hollywood-inspired Faena Theater and the Faena Forum, which hosts several seasonal modern art exhibits.
Visitors will also have the opportunity to support local talent at the inaugural Miami Beach Youth Music Festival at the North Beach Bandshell on March 18th. The event, hosted by the City of Miami Beach and The Rhythm Foundation, offers young Miami Beach musicians the chance to perform live in front of a large audience.
“Miami Beach has evolved into a true cultural hot spot”, says Grisette Roque, Executive Director of the MBVCA. “The destination offers such diverse entertainment options, night and day; Miami Beach is truly like no other place in the world.”
