2018 WINTER FESTIVAL
America has always been a place of monumental inspiration, feeding the ideals of people from all over the world. This season’s Winter Festival celebrates artists who found creative inventiveness within this great nation, featuring works from Britten, Ravel, Korngold and more. The Festival closes with the treasured symphony that embodies America’s embrace of creativity, Dvořák’s “New World.”
Leveraging the power of art to transcend differences, a series of NJSO Accents and special Winter Festival events explore, through multiple art forms, the immigrant experience and how foreign artists have illustrated American inspiration in their work.
