Branchburg, NJ - Returning again after an exciting first-time performance last year, the Whitehouse Wind Symphony, a community symphonic band directed by Branchburg resident James P. Sheeley, Jr., will be performing a free concert at White Oak Park! This event is being presented by Branchburg’s Department of Recreation, and will take place June 27 at 7 p.m.
Please note that the rain date for this event is the following day, June 28.
This concert is free and open to the general public, although a good-will offering will be taken to benefit the band, a non-profit group comprised entirely of volunteer musicians. Attendees are encouraged to bring picnic blankets and chairs. The concert will feature a wide variety of popular and patriotic music. We encourage all concertgoers of all ages, from the youngest to the young at heart, to attend. In the event of inclement weather, the announcement to move to the rain date or cancel the concert will be made on the band’s website (whitehousewindsymphony.org) and Facebook page (facebook.com/whitehousewind).
The ensemble was founded by conductor emeritus Casey Bork on April 15, 1996. Since its founding, the band has grown rapidly, attracting experienced musicians as regular members from all over New Jersey, as well as New York City and eastern Pennsylvania. It is now comprised of approximately 50 amateur and professional musicians who perform together regularly to enthusiastic audiences throughout central and northern New Jersey. It was recently voted the winner of the "Hunterdon Happening" list in the category of favorite musician/band for the third consecutive year.

Funding has been made possible in part by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts, through funds administered by the Hunterdon County Cultural & Heritage Commission. Additional funds provided by the Flemington Community Partnership.
