Join the Columbia University Club of South Florida for "Columbia Connects" at the New World Symphony in Miami Beach! This concert is the Season Opening with esteemed conductor Michael Tilson Thomas. We will view the concert at architect Frank Gehry's spectacular New World Center which features a 7,000 square foot projection wall and outdoor sound system. Meet and mingle with other alumni, friends and families in the park.
"Columbia Connects" is month of celebrations around the globe - bringing together alumni from across the University to share celebrate our shared Columbia experience, discover new connections, and build a stronger network of Columbians around the globe. Over 40 different alumni clubs will be celebrating Columbia Connects. You may remember our past two Columbia Connects happy hour events at Area 31.
