- Sat, May 18 2:00 pm New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark
Markus Stenz conductor
New Jersey Symphony
Discover what makes a live orchestra concert so special. We’ll take a deep dive into Beethoven’s “Eroica”–his breakout Third Symphony that broke all the rules and forged a new future for the symphonic form. Inspired by Leonard Bernstein’s masterful way of putting young audiences at the center of music-making, this interactive concert will feature inside tips, listening cues and fun facts that make for the perfect Saturday afternoon family outing!
This will be a Relaxed Performance, designed to accommodate the differing needs of our patrons. We encourage you and your families to bring your own sensory manipulatives, noise reduction headphones and other necessary tools that will allow you to react and enjoy the music in a way that is most natural for you! If you are someone who enjoys silence in a concert hall, this performance might not be for you. More information on the resources we will have in place pre-concert and during the performance will be available soon.
