New Jersey Symphony Resident Artistic Catalyst Daniel Bernard Roumain (DBR) returns to The Newark Museum of Art with the New Jersey Symphony Chamber Players for a program that presents music through the lens of an emotional arc that meets the moment. The concert will also feature the Anne Lieberson Ensemble, a string quartet of principal players from the New Jersey Symphony Youth Orchestra.
DBR has curated a mix of works from amazing composers like Florence Price, Mozart and Farrenc and presents his own powerful works such as Hip-Hop Study & Etude in F Major and E-flat Major and his arrangement of Lift Every Voice and Sing.
The Chamber Players will perform the Ukrainian national anthem in solidarity with the Ukraine people during the unjust war that continues.
