Symphonia Saturdays Part 3 is the third 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.

We are pleased to announce our FREE virtual holiday concert as our gift to you! 

Tune in anytime to our YouTube Channel from December 11th @ 5pm until December 26th to enjoy the concert.

Renowned baritone Kevin Deas, mezzo soprano Matilda Smolij, and the sensational violinist Ruotao Mao will join our string orchestra for a festive holiday concert not to be missed!

This presentation of the Riverside Symphonia Senior Outreach Program is supported by a charitable contribution from Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, however, our ability to keep the music going in the face of a very difficult time for the performing arts is dependent on donations from our audience.

We have made this concert free in the hope you will enjoy it and experience the magical music we have been creating in the Lambertville/New Hope region for over 30 years and that it will inspire you to donate today!

Please go to riversidesymphonia.org to donate.
