More than 70 high school and college students from New World School of the Arts performed in this year’s International women’s Forum annual U.S. conference Opening Reception on October 24th. Set against a dramatic sunset by the bay, at the beautiful PAMM terrace, the performance not only welcomed but also surprised and delighted more than 800 guests from around the nation to beautiful Miami for IWF’s annual US Conference, with an inspiring medley from popular award-winning musicals.

“Incorporating a performance helped set the tone for the rest of the conference,” explained NWSA Executive Board member and past Chair, Maria C. Alonso, President & CEO of United Way, IWF member and Co-Chair of the Opening Reception. “When we first imagined the conference, particularly the Opening Reception, we aimed to create a warm and inviting welcome that would provide colleagues from around the globe with a taste for our diverse and exciting community. Our goal was to highlight the vibrancy of Miami’s cultural scene and the talent that is shaping our arts community. A collaboration with New World School of the Arts was the perfect fit, as these students will undoubtedly be our future leaders in the arts,” said Alonso.
