Ari will take the stage in Saint- Saens Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso in A Minor, Op. 28 for violin and orchestra, a composition originally written in 1863 by Camille Saint-Saëns for the virtuoso violinist Pablo de Sarasate.  The program also includes Debussy’s Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune, Liszt’s Les préludes, S 97, Dvorak’s Water Goblin, Op. 107/B 195 and Saint-Saëns: Danse macabre. 

By proclamation of Governor Christie, Discover Jersey Arts Month is an annual celebration designed to encourage all New Jerseyans to explore the arts in their distinctive neighborhoods, and was created by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts and the ArtPride New Jersey Foundation to commemorate the joy, entertainment and enrichment arts bring to the state’s diverse communities. “We began to honor October as Discover Jersey Arts Month as a way to celebrate the often overlooked economic, educational and civic engagement values that the arts impart in our lives,” says Ann Marie Miller, Director of Advocacy & Public Policy of ArtPride New Jersey. “It’s also an excellent opportunity to recognize the contributions of cultural organizations in our region, such as the Adelphi Orchestra, that bring the arts to the forefront of our communities daily.”

For the past 62 years the Adelphi Orchestra has been honored to be a member of the New Jersey cultural community. The mission of the Adelphi Orchestra is to serve the musical and educational needs of the citizens of New Jersey, with special emphasis given to families with young children, seniors and those with limited financial means. To further this end, numerous concerts are offered free of admission charges.  The Adelphi Orchestra strives to advance the orchestral arts through education, commissions, and community partnerships. Within the orchestra, the company fosters a challenging and enjoyable environment where artistic excellence can flourish

With unsurpassed performers, award-winning theaters, breathtaking performing arts centers, unique museums and exceptional galleries, New Jersey has extraordinary art offerings. From sculpture gardens to glass museums, modern dance to classic ballet and Mozart to hip-hop, the Garden State has it all. And throughout October, the Adelphi Orchestra and arts organizations throughout the region will carry the message that these arts – and countless others– are an important part of everyone’s life.

“Studies consistently show that involvement in the arts aids children in school and promotes academic achievement. But the benefits of the arts certainly don’t stop there,” continued Miller. “When we talk to community leaders, we hear repeatedly how important the arts sector is to local economies. For one, the nonprofit arts community supports 80,000 jobs in the state. And audiences of public arts events in the state exceed 18 million, and help stimulate over $1.5 billion in economic activity for New Jersey.”

Community members are encouraged to participate in the work of the Adelphi Orchestra and celebrate the arts every day.
