July 15,  7 – 8:30 PM

Take a musical tour through sunny Italy, brought to life by a string quartet from the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra!
Featuring everything from traditional tarantella dances to the soaring beauty of music by Puccini, Mascagni and Rossini, the ‘Una Festa Musicale Italiana’ program will transport you to a land where speech is like singing and melody flows like wine.
Resources for Education And Community Harmony (REACH) is an outreach program of the NJSO designed to bring the excitement of live music to all of New Jersey’s diverse communities. With the orchestra’s overall mission in mind  this program was created in 1998 to engage our communities by offering original programs created by-and featuring-members of the NJSO.

Two women plus 10 instruments equals one good time, as Karen Hirshon and Linda Littleton play a wide variety of ethnic folk music, including selections that range from lively Irish jigs and down-home American reels to hard-driving Klezmer freilachs, haunting Gypsy melodies, and exotic Balkan dance tunes. Throughout their performance, Simple Gifts puts their own distinctive stamp on traditional tunes, creating some of the finest arrangement in folk music today.
Registration is requested. Please plan to arrive on time, as seating is not guaranteed.
