imageThe Bickford Theatre celebrates a new exhibition at the Morris Museum featuring the works of Lina Tagliapietra, a world-renowned glass artist from Murano, Italy which is famous for its prestigious glass companies. The New Jersey Symphony Orchestra Chamber Players will take us on a musical tour of Italy.

The NJSO ensemble of violinists Jim Tsao and John Connelly, violist Lucy Corwin, and cellist Fran Rowell will pay homage to this remarkable exhibition of works by one of the most acclaimed glass masters. They will perform well-known works by several beloved Italian composers, including the Overture to The Barber of Seville by Rossini, Concerto Grosso in D minor by Verdi, the Theme from Caprice No. 24 by Paganini, and Un bel di from Madame Butterfly by Pucinni.
