The NJWS is back and is excited to announce its 2021 – 2022 concert season. We look forward to once again presenting the finest in wind band performances at two outstanding venues. We hope that you will join us as the New Jersey Wind Symphony returns to the concert stage.
Tickets for all concerts will be available for purchase on-line September 1, 2021
The NJWS opens it 2021 – 2022 season with a concert spotlighting works of John Philip Sousa. Marches, both familiar and unfamiliar, as well as Sousa scores that are not in the march style will be featured. Music that was played by the renown bands of Sousa’s day will round out the concert.
The NJWS teams up with Ars Musica, one of the finest area choral ensembles. Featured on the program will be Stravinsky’s masterpiece, Symphony of Psalms. The NJWS will also perform the Holst Suite No. 1 in its original orchestration.
A holiday favorite, the NJWS will be joined by tuba and euphonium musicians from the area who will be playing selections that are traditionally performed annually at the TubaChristmas concert at Rockefeller Center.
Join the New Jersey Wind Symphony in the awe inspiring space of the Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart. The fifth largest cathedral in the United States, the Basilica offers an aural experience like none other. Works that are enhanced by the magnificent space and mighty organ will be featured on the program.
The season comes to a close with over 50 of the finest local high school wind, brass, and percussion students joining the New Jersey Wind Symphony in concert. This program will also feature the winner of the 2020 – 2021 Youth Soloist Competition now in its 16th year.
