They will also perform the Clarinet Concerto by Aaron Copland, with Ms. Cadee Lee as clarinet soloist. Cadie Lee is the winner of the NJIO Young Artist Concerto Competition, sponsored by Elefante Music in New Providence.

Cadee Lee is a junior at Bergen County Academies in Hackensack, NJ, and attends Juilliard Pre-College as a clarinet major under the tutelage of Professor Ayako Oshima Neidich. She is a grand prize and scholarship winner at the International Young Artists Competition, first prize winner and judge’s pick at Vivo International Music Competition, a finalist and winner at the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, and a silver medal winner at the National Fischoff Chamber Music Competition.

NJIO’s Intermezzo Orchestra, conducted by Brian McGowan, will present Mendelssohn’s Nocturne, from Midsummer Night's Dream, and Purcell’s Rondeau from Abdelazer Suite.

The Prelude Ensemble, NJIO’s entry-level group, is conducted by Elizabeth Maliszewski. They will be performing Beethoven’s Ode to Joy, arranged by Capenegro, and Del Borgo’s Coronation March.
