Welcome to Symphonia Saturdays Part 1!
Symphonia Saturdays Part 1 is the first in a series of mini concerts highlighting our musicians and their stories presented by the Riverside Symphonia and sponsored by Janssen and the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.
These performances were created as part of our senior outreach program which performs in Senior Living Communities throughout the region.

Special Message from Maestro Smolij
It gives me great pleasure to invite you to the 30th Anniversary Season of the Riverside Symphonia!
Reaching the milestone of three decades of high quality music making should be a source of great pride for our community and speaks to the rich legacy of our region’s commitment to the arts. I am very grateful to a long list of supporters, donors, board members, and volunteers who over 30 years have made sure that live orchestral music is part of the artistic life of our river towns. Through symphonic concerts, chamber music recitals, special presentations in senior centers, as well as numerous educational programs and artistic collaborations, the Riverside Symphonia has become an indispensable part of the cultural tapestry woven by all of you.
Our Mission Statement
The Riverside Symphonia through its high-quality, professional orchestral performances, entertains, inspires, educates, and is dedicated to building community partnerships across the greater Delaware River valley.
