NJ Orchestra Presents Magic of Mahler in Morristown November 3


MORRISTOWN, NJ – The New Jersey Festival Orchestra is continuing its mission of presenting bold and innovative initiatives with a presentation of Mahler 9 on November 8 at the Bickford Theatre. 

“Mahler’s mighty 9th is an extremely difficult work to perform, therefore only a handful of orchestras around the world perform it, and infrequently”, said NJFO Music Director David Wroe. “This work is a culmination of, not only Mahler’s genius, but also the final developmental pinnacle of its potential to move and enlighten a receptive audience.”

The ensemble presents a New Jersey premiere of Klaus Simon’s jaw-dropping “bonsai” re-orchestration of this celebrated work.

According to Wroe, the arrangement is life changing. “If one views music, as I do, as a language expressing the human condition in art form, then this work is an earth shattering exposee of a composer’s or rather human being’s deeper inner thoughts at the point of his imminent demise.”

The NJFO continues to expand to reach a broader audience.  “The “festival” perfectly describes both the energy of our professional presentations and the diverse nature of our offerings”, continued Wroe.  “We serve New Jersey in the most diverse, varied and approachable way. Our mission, in part, is to bring a broad spectrum of music to the public”.

Tickets for the 3pm show can be purchased by phone at (973) 971-3706, online at or in person at the Bickford Theatre Box Office.
