The New Jersey Symphony will be presenting a series of six summer outdoor performances across multiple outdoor venues in locations across New Jersey. We invite you to join us for free performances of some great music at Ocean County College in Toms River, Raritan Bay Waterfront Park in South Amboy, Branch Brook Park in Newark, Marine Park in Red Bank and Liberty State Park in Jersey City.

The series features a medley of timeless classics the whole family will love, including selections from Jurassic Park and West Side Story, William Grant Still’s Festive Overture and so much more.

Clarinetist Timothy Lien, winner of the New Jersey Symphony Youth Orchestra’s Henry Lewis Concerto Competition, joins the Symphony in Madison, Newark, Red Bank and Jersey City for a solo performance of Ludwig Spohr’s Concerto in C Minor for Clarinet, Op. 26.
