The sleek, stunning stylings of the Frank Gehry-designed New World Center could almost overshadow the sounds of its inhabitants. Almost. But Miami Beach's kings (and queens) of classical music manage to do their digs justice. Here you can listen in on some of the nation's most outstanding young musicians before they move on to even bigger things. With more than 60 annual performances (many of them free), the New World Symphony is impressively prolific. There's also an on-site Soundscape, where films and performances are screened on a 7,000 foot outdoor projection wall while attendees lounge on the lawn, drinking wine and nibbling at cheese. Plus, they host post-performance parties that are a little more action-packed than the earlier affairs. All in all, impressive is an understatement.
