Would you like a little yoga with your symphonic music? The New World Symphony is hoping the answer is "yes," when the orchestral academy offers its first ever "Yoga Night at the World Symphony" this Friday night.
The New World Symphony will feature a half-hour concert in the New World Center's concert hall at 7 p.m., followed by a yoga session in the adjoining park. Well-known yoga instructors Paul Toliuszis, Christy Nones McKenzie and Rina Jakubowicz will conduct the session.
The program for the concert will include Rossini's Overture to "The Barber of Seville," and Weber's Overture to "Der Freischutz." NWS Conducting Fellow Joshua Gerson will conduct the program.
The yoga session will be enhanced by special music and video art projected on the giant New World Center screen, and complimentary refreshments will be served afterwards.
The collaborative event is part of the New World Symphony's mini-concert series. Half-hour concerts will also take place at 8 and 9 p.m. (without the subsequent yoga session). The mini-concerts will also be held the following night, Saturday, also at 8 and 9 p. m. Tickets for each mini-concert is $2.50.
An added benefit is that select area restaurants are also offering dining discounts when diners show their $2.50 ticket on those evenings. Participating restaurants are listed at the NSW website.
See the NWS website for full concert information.
