Livingston Symphony Orchestra Presents 'Winter Frolic'

By KIMBERLY A. BOLOGNINI

January 28, 2013 at 7:02 AM

LIVINGSTON, NJ - The Livingston Symphony Orchestra performed a family concert entitled "Winter Frolic" Sunday afternoon in the Livingston High School auditorium.

The concert was open to the public and was presented by Musical Director and Principal Conductor, Istvan Jaray.

Jaray explained that the concert consisted of numerous winter/snow compositions.

“The show involves different compositions of different composers and how they see winter in sound,” Jaray said.

He added that the children in attendance may recognize a few pieces.

Compositions such as Glazunov’s “Seasons,” Tchaikovsky’s “Winter Dreams” and “Nutcracker Suite,” and Debussy’s “Snowflakes are Dancing” were performed.

“We hope that from the show, the audience gets the idea of how composers use music to describe winter," Jaray said.

Punam Bhargava, president of Livingston Symphony Orchestra, said that the children always enjoy the family concert, which is one of four shows that the orchestra performs yearly.

“The kids always love it because they learn about the instruments and different sounds,” Bhargava said. “They learn what music is all about.”

Livingston resident and parent Howard Friedland and his family were in attendance to view his son’s performance.

“Aside from seeing my son perform which is my favorite part of coming, I’m really looking forward to the show,” Friedland said.

He added that it was the first time in attending a performance and he has heard nothing but great things about them.

Jaray told The Alternative Press that the orchestra had two weeks to rehearse for the show, due to a postponement of Nationalistic Composers that was supposed to be performed during Hurricane Sandy, but was delayed until two weeks ago.

The next concert, Present & Future, will be on March 23. Tickets are $20, $10 for seniors and students.
