Musical Celebration of the Holidays
Saturday, December 4, 2021
South Hunterdon High School
Experience a festive celebration of the Holiday Season with classical and pop holiday oriented repertoire from around the world. Audience members new and old will love the surprise selections for this year. The captivating soprano Aubry Ballarò will join the orchestra, and our special soloist, and 2020 Caprio Young Artist Competition winner, Chelsie Lim, will dazzle with her mesmerizing cello virtuosity to illustrate to the audience why she took the first prize.
All guests, regardless of vaccination status, will be required to wear masks while inside the concert building.
This season finds us thankful for our loyal audience members, reflective on our past, and hopeful for the future, as we recently passed the historic milestone of our 30th Anniversary in the pursuit of our mission to bring world-class music and internationally acclaimed guest artists to our region.
When we embarked on our 31st Season, we could not have predicted the current health crisis and its effect on our daily lives as well as the global arts community.
