The New Jersey Symphony presents delightfully eclectic and crowd-pleasing chamber performances in partnership with The Newark Museum of Art!

This summer, the New Jersey Symphony Chamber Players return to The Newark Museum of Art for a series of delightfully eclectic and crowd-pleasing performances at the Alice Ransom Dreyfuss Memorial Garden.

Wind music has entertained audiences for centuries. In Imperial Vienna, guests at most festive outdoor gatherings would be serenaded by groups of wind players, a tradition that gave us magnificent wind chamber music. This lovely evening with the New Jersey Symphony Chamber Players includes a Mozart masterpiece and music of Hummel and Gounod, alongside wind music of the 20th and 21st centuries chosen especially for the garden courtyard of The Newark Museum of Art.

Performed in Newark at The Newark Museum of Art
