NJ Symphony Orchestra free concert at Hoboken Pier A Park

The New Jersey Symphony Orchestra will perform a free outdoor concert at Pier A Park in Hoboken this Thursday, June 28th at 7:30pm, continuing the Orchestra’s annual tradition of performing summer concerts in outdoor venues throughout New Jersey.

The concert, led by conductor Emil de Cou, will feature music from the stage and screen. Music from E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial, Rodgers’ “Carousel Waltz” and the shipboard hijinks of Gilbert and Sullivan’s resoundingly popular H.M.S. Pinafore mingle with patriotic favorites and a salute to our Armed Forces. The program also features Tchaikovsky’s Polonaise from Eugene Onegin, Nicolai’s Merry Wives of Windsor Overture, Strauss’ Voices of Spring and more.

A trio of vocalists from Opera New Jersey: Soprano Channing Connell, mezzo-soprano Melissa Kornacki and baritone Jeremy Moore, joins the NJSO.

Summer concerts reflect the NJSO’s commitment to bringing live symphonic music to communities throughout the state.
