Concert Location Update:
Due to air quality concerns and out of an abundance of caution for the safety of our patrons, musicians, and staff, we have decided to move this evening’s concert indoors to Victoria Theater at NJPAC.
Lobby doors will open at 6:30 pm and the concert hall doors will open at 7 pm. The concert is free to attend, and seating is general admission. No ticket reservation is required. Seating is subject to availability. Please do not bring food, beverages or chairs. Paid parking is available in Military Park Garage; limited street parking is also available.
The Essex County Branch Brook Park fireworks spectacular will be rescheduled to a later date.
