Season Opener Postponed

The Montclair Orchestra has made the very difficult decision to postpone our season-opener concert which was scheduled for Sunday, October 3rd.

A combination of factors contributed to this decision, but the two primary considerations were:

  • the recent flooding, which impacted a small but critical portion of our equipment and supplies. While our stage flooring system was spared the worst of the flooding, several pieces of equipment including stage components, music equipment and supplies were damaged, and need to be replaced or remediated.
  • scheduling has been affected due to multiple considerations, including impacts to the venue from flood damage, as well as schedule changes due to Covid-19 concerns with partner organizations and institutions.

Our goal now is to plan for our opening program to take place in early November, and we are making arrangements to ensure that everything is in place for that to occur. In the interim, we encourage you to put the following events on your calendar, and continue to support The Montclair Orchestra locally!

  • September 18th, 10:00am to 6:00pm - The Montclair Orchestra will be at Montclair Art Museum’s Fall Festival! Come say hi at our volunteer table, and be sure to time your trip for a special performance at 4:20pm. Interested in being a volunteer? Check out our opportunities on Volunteermatch.

  • October 10th, 2:00pm - MO Fellows and Mentors will present an octet program to open the Van Vleck Sunday Music Series for the season! Enjoy an afternoon performance of music by Richard Strauss, Antonin Dvorak, and Morristown-Beard School alumna Kailyn Williams.
