Come and enjoy an evening of delightful symphonic music provided free of charge by the Tri-City area's 40-musician symphony, the Newark Symphonic Winds. Under the direction of Richard Wong, the evening's performance will include a Rogers and Hammerstein's medley featuring "Bali Hai," "Oklahoma," "Getting to Know You," and "Climb Every Mountain"; selections from the soundtrack of E.T.; highlights from "Porgy and Bess"; Shostakovich's "Festive Overture"; Franz von Suppe's "Morning, Noon and Night in Vienna"; Gershwin's "Someone to Watch Over Me" as well as other great pieces. There will also be a special performance by the talented Newark Woodwind Quintet.
The concerts have been enjoying an increased attendance at their performances, pulling in an almost full-house for their last spring concert. Seating is on a first come, first served basis, so make sure you come a little early to ensure your seat for what is sure to be another great evening of music from our talented local musicians.
