NJIO 25th Anniversary Concert & Gala | March 3

New Jersey Intergenerational Orchestra (NJIO) celebrates its Silver Anniversary with this signature concert.

Highlighting the performance is soloist Allison Brewster Franzetti, playing Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2—the piece that inspired the pop tune “All By Myself.” Ms. Franzetti has received international acclaim from critics and audiences alike for her stunning virtuosity and musicality. She was a Latin Grammy Nominee for Best Classical Album in both 2018 and 2014 and a 2008 Grammy Nominee for Best Instrumental Soloist.

Also on the program are Borodin’s Polovetsian Dances with the gorgeous “big tune” recognizable to all as “Strangers in Paradise” from the musical Kismet. Sibelius’ Karelia Overture, a selection from Haydn’s Symphony No. 104, and Grainger’s Country Gardens round out the program.

NJIO’s Prelude Ensemble will play in the lobby prior to the concert.

NJIO will host an Anniversary Gala immediately following the concert. Public is invited with combo ticket.

TICKETS: $15 concert only; $55 concert & gala tor tickets
