'Masters of the Orchestra' presented by NJ Intergenerational Orchestra (NJIO)

SUMMIT, NJ -- The New Jersey Intergenerational Orchestra will showcase various works by masterful composers with its annual winter concert on Sunday, Feb. 23, at Lawton C. Johnson Summit Middle School. The performance will begin at 3:00 p.m., and will feature performances from all three of NJIO’s orchestral ensembles, beginning with Prelude’s onstage performance, as well as its Flute Choir in the lobby during intermission. Admission is free; donations are gratefully accepted at the door.

NJIO’s Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Artistic Director Warren Cohen, will be performing Sergei Prokofiev’s Symphony No. 7. Written in 1952, one year before Prokofiev’s death, this was the last of his symphonies. Symphony No. 7 was originally written with a quiet ending to the final movement, but due to pressure from Russian officials at the time, Prokofiev added an energetic coda to be played at the end. This addition earned him the coveted Stalin Prize, although Prokofiev noted that he did prefer the original, quieter ending himself.

NJIO’s Symphony will also perform Maurice Ravel’s Tzigane featuring Dylan Hamme, our 2019 Concerto Competition Winner, on violin. The piece features a virtuosic violin solo alongside the orchestra, and its characteristics mirror traditional Gypsy music (the title, Tzigane, comes from the French word for “gypsy”).  Ravel completed Tzigane only days before it was premiered by famous violinist Jelly d’Arányi in 1924, where it was universally praised by critics. Intermezzo Orchestra will be performing the first movement of Johann Stamitz’s Sinfonia in D Major along with the first of Ludwig van Beethoven’s German Dances.
