FLEMINGTON, NJ - The Hunterdon Harmonizers barbershop chorus and Whitehouse Wind Symphony will perform in a free outdoor concert on June 10.
The concert will begin at 4 p.m. and will be held at Borough Park here. The park is behind the old Historic Courthouse off Park Avenue.
The concert, sponsored by Mediatech Foundation, will include a wide variety of patriotic music.
This concert is free and open to all, although a good-will offering will be taken to benefit the band and chorus. Both are non-profit groups comprised entirely of volunteer musicians.
Concertgoers of all ages, from the youngest to the young at heart, are encouraged to attend and to bring picnic blankets and chairs. In the event of inclement weather, the concert will be moved into the Historic Courthouse.
The Whitehouse Wind Symphony will be under the direction of James P. Sheeley, Jr., and the Hunterdon Harmonizers Barbershop Chorus will be directed by Don Reckenbeil.
The Whitehouse Wind Symphony was founded by conductor emeritus Casey Bork in 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 audiences throughout central and northern New Jersey.
