Don’t miss the New Jersey Symphony’s spectacular season opening concert at NJPAC. Party tickets are now on sale!
This season-opener celebrates the pathbreaking art of Black composers past and present with conductor Robert Spano. The concert kicks off with Valerie Coleman’s Umoja and Duke Ellington’s New World A-Comin’ featuring jazz virtuoso Aaron Diehl and the amazing Aaron Diehl Trio. Dvořák’s Symphony No. 9, “From the New World,” one of the most beloved concert works of all time, closes the concert. Click here for concert information.
