WESTFIELD, NJ — The New Jersey Festival Orchestra’s “Return of the Three Holiday Tenors” earned a standing ovation Saturday night at the Presbyterian Church in Westfield.

 A nearly packed house came out despite the snow to hear the symphony orchestra with choir students from Franklin Elementary School and renowned tenors Cody Austin, Cameron Schutza and Matthew White.

Members of the audience clapped along with the “Can Can,” tapped their toes to “Sleigh Ride,” sighed to “Danny Boy” and sang along with “Auld Lang Syne.”
