MILLBURN, NJ - Join conductor, Michael Stratechuk, and the musicians of the Metropolitan Orchestra of NJ on Sunday afternoon, November 16th at 3:00pm in Millburn, when they present the opening concert celebrating their 43rd season.
The program, the first of the orchestra’s three concert series, will feature Beethoven: Egmont Overture, Op.84; Mendelssohn: Violin Concerto in E minor, Op.64 with accomplished violinist, Michael Avagliano; and Beethoven: Symphony #4, Op. 60.
Avagliano has been praised by the Washington Post as a “versatile and sensitive artist” with a tone that is “both bold and graceful.” He is also an accomplished violist as a member of the Madison String Quartet, and equally at home as a conductor, he is Music Director of the Central Jersey Symphony. Currently, he serves as concertmaster of the Baroque Orchestra of North Jersey, and the Metropolitan Orchestra of NJ.
The performance will be held at Millburn Middle School Auditorium, 25 Old Short Hills Road, Millburn, NJ.
