AIGA Miami’s popular Studio Tour series is back! Next to open their doors to students is the design team at New World Symphony, Siggi Bachmann (creative director) and Diana Guerrero (designer). Siggi and Diana will play host in NWS’ state-of-the-art, technologically sophisticated concert hall, where naturally the design aesthetic has to be as cutting-edge as Frank Gehry’s architecture. Learn from this dynamic duo about how they balance a unique combination of roles—not only are Siggi and Diana the only designers on staff, they also instruct NWS Fellows in design thinking strategies and are key voices in cultivating donors and developing engaging events. Whether you’re hoping to work in-house, join an agency, or open your own studio, their nuggets of wisdom can help pave the way toward future career success.
Studio Tours are open only to students and recent graduates. Due to the popularity of these events, we require advanced registration.

About New World Symphony
The New World Symphony, America’s Orchestral Academy (NWS), prepares graduates of music programs for leadership roles in professional orchestras and ensembles. In the 31 years since its co-founding by Artistic Director Michael Tilson Thomas and Lin and Ted Arison, NWS has helped launch the careers of more than 1,050 alumni worldwide.
A laboratory for the way music is taught, presented and experienced, the New World Symphony consists of 87 young musicians who are granted fellowships lasting up to three years. The fellowship program offers in-depth exposure to traditional and modern repertoire, professional development training and personalized experiences working with leading guest conductors, soloists and visiting faculty. Relationships with these artists are extended through NWS’s extensive distance learning via the internet.
NWS Fellows take advantage of the innovative performance facilities and state-of-the art practice and ensemble rooms of the Frank Gehry-designed New World Center, the campus of the New World Symphony and home of the Knight New Media Center. In the hopes of joining NWS, more than 1,500 recent music school and conservatory graduates compete for about 35 available fellowships each year. The Fellows are selected for this highly competitive, prestigious opportunity based on their musical achievement and promise, as well as their passion for the future of classical music.
