SOMERVILLE, NJ - The Whitehouse Wind Symphony will return to Division Street here for a free performance on Saturday, Sept. 16 at 3:30 p.m. as part of the Arts on Division Festival taking place that weekend.
The concert program includes a medley of selections from musicals by Andrew Lloyd Weber, a medley of songs from popular Disney movies, the “National Emblem March” by Edwin Eugene Bagley, “Friska” from Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2 by Franz Liszt and “Bugler’s Holiday” by Leroy Anderson.
