BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - People talking, really smiling -- a man playing guitar -- and singing for us all...... Beginnings didn't disappoint bringing the lyrics and horn section of Chicago's top hits to Memorial Park in Berkeley Heights last Wednesday for the second of the four week Concert in the Park series.

While the hundreds of Baby Boomers and Gen Xers sang along to every word of Chicago's play list that spans decades -- the younger generations were wowed by the talent of the vocals and horn section replicating Chicago's pop hits like “If You Leave Me Now," “Hard Habit to Break,” "Feeling Stronger Every Day" to the crowd pleasing closer "Saturday in the Park."

The free concerts are presented by the Recreation Commission's Special Events Committee and through the partnership with the Suburban Chamber of Commerce are brought to the community through their season long sponsors: Berkeley Aquatic Club, Rotary Club of Berkeley Heights, Smith Chiropractic Foundation and Grain & Cane Gastrotruck. The Beginnings concert sponsors were Taylor Rental and TAPinto Berkeley Heights. There are drawings at each concert for gift certificates to Goodman's Deli, Delicious Heights and Giovanni's Bistro and Bar.
