Magnificently talented Associate Concertmaster Brennan Sweet and Assistant Principal Viola Elzbieta Weyman step to center stage to play the loveliest music ever written for violin and viola. And the NJSO’s solo piccolo, Kathleen Nester, makes the orchestra’s tiniest instrument sing loud and proud in Vivaldi’s virtuosic Piccolo Concerto in C Major. The sunshine of Mendelssohn’s “Italian” Symphony warms the entire program.
