NJSO at Giralda Farms in Madison
NJSO in the Parks: 37th Giralda Music & Arts Festival
Update: The concert for this evening is on! See you at Giralda Farms.
Enjoy the beauty of a performance by the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra while relaxing on the lush grounds of the Giralda Farms Corporate Park (the former Dodge Estate). There will be plenty to see and do, with children’s activities and an art show and sale. Morris Arts’ traditional creative picnic contest will return with prizes awarded to the most inventive picnics that day. This will mark Morris Arts’ 37th Giralda Music & Arts Festival—and the return of a much-treasured tradition in the area.
The NJSO performance will feature diverse and inspiring music from amazing composers across the Americas, like John Williams, Enrique Soro, Oscar Lorenzo Fernández and late New Jersey composer George Walker. Hear trailblazer Florence Price’s lighthearted “Nimble Feet” from Dances in the Canebrakes, enjoy patriotic favorites and rejoice in Aaron Copland’s classic “Saturday Night Waltz” from Rodeo.
