Holiday Concert and Community Sing-along
Submitted By Jim Carter
Enjoy an evening of symphonic music provided free of charge by the Tri-City areas' 40-musician symphony, the Newark Symphonic Winds, directed by Richard Wong. The night will be filled with surprise, including a reading of "'twas the Night Before Christmas," a performance by the Newark Saxophone Quartet, and a community sing-along. Chances are Santa and Mrs. Claus will make an appearance as well, so be certain to bring the children!
Formed in 2005, the Newark Symphonic Winds (NSW) is a fully nonprofit, 40-piece wind ensemble composed of professional, semi-professional, and amateur musicians from our communities. The NSW and their smaller ensembles entertain audiences in the area with numerous performances throughout the year. The NSW's repertoire includes some of the most beloved music written, including classical works, Broadway and film selections, jazz compositions, and marches. The NSW works closely with the community to encourage and support arts and music programs in area schools and within the community at large. Call (510) 552-7186 or visit newarksymphonic.org to learn about upcoming performances.
