From traditional to pops, choral favorites, renowned tenor fare and Broadway favorites, the winter season of Westfield’s New Jersey Festival Orchestra (NJFO) concerts will fill the entire family with warmth and cheer.
On Saturday, December 7th (Westfield) and Sunday, December 8 (Madison), NJFO, led by Maestro David Wroe, kicks off the holiday season with a bang and plenty of bling with The Three Holiday Tenors, a family festival of traditional and contemporary Holiday songs and music, sing-a-longs and more.
The concert features Metropolitan Opera’s internationally acclaimed tenor Barry Banks, and award winning tenors Jesse Donner and Matthew Vickers to celebrate and captivate with a dazzling selection of renowned tenor arias. Traditional carols, signature versions of familiar fare and a host of wintertime curiosities are also sure to delight.
“We are thrilled to welcome The Three Holiday Tenors – each more talented than the next – to help us welcome in the Holiday season,” said Wroe. “We believe there is something for everyone in this performance. Our concert is a vessel for children, parents, grandparents and friends – indeed the entire community – to come together through festive music at this unique time of the year.”
This seasonal stroll of timeless classics and sentimental favorites, sure to bring joy, smiles, and distinctive holiday memories to one and all, has been made possible in part by support from The Westfield Foundation, a Union County H.E.A.R.T grant and The NJ State Council on the Arts.
The first concert takes place on Saturday, Dec. 7 at 7 p.m. at The Presbyterian Church in Westfield. It will also be performed on Sunday, Dec. 8 at 3 p.m. at The Concert Hall at Drew University in Madison. Tickets start at $30 for adults and there is a special discount price of only $15 for all students under 21.
