Guitar Concierto at Heart of NJ Intergenerational Orchestra's Free Summit Concert May 15

Guitarist Joel Perry will performs Joaquin Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez May 15.
Maestro Warre Cohen conducts the NJIO Symphony Orchestra.

SUMMIT, NJ - Noted guitarist Joel Perry will perform composer Rodrigo's hauntingly beautiful Concierto de Aranjuez as the New Jersey Intergenerational Orchestra (NJIO) performs a free concert at Summit High School May 15.

The program, which begins at 3 p.m., will include lively music from Russian to Romanian and back to the Latino rhythms of Cuba.  All three NJIO ensembles and orchestras will perform, each consisting of amateur and professional musicians of all ages.

Perry has performed in more than 15 countries and in Carnegie Hall, Alice Tully Hall, and The Rainbow Room. He is a member of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, the National Association of Jazz Educators, Music Educators National Conference, and American Choral Directors Association.

NJIO’s Symphony Orchestra, led by Maestro Warren Cohen, will begin the program with Sergei Prokofiev’s Sinfonietta, a rarely performed work that is light in character while infusing Prokofiev’s typical harmonic twists.

The program continues with the Concierto de Aranjuez by Spanish composer Joaquín Rodrigo, a work inspired by the gardens at Palacio Real de Aranjuez that evokes the sounds of nature, transporting listeners to another place and time.

The concert will draw to a dramatic close with Arturo Márquez’s Danzón No. 2.  This exciting expression of the Cuban dance style “Danzón” propelled Gustavo Dudamel onto the world stage and made this work popular, when he performed it with the Simón Bolívar Youth Orchestra of Venezuela.

NJIO’s Intermezzo Orchestra will perform Béla Bartók’s Romanian Folk Dances and William Boyce’s Symphony No. 1.  The gypsy violinists that Bartók heard while traveling through Transylvania inspired the Romanian Folk Dances.  While best known for his sacred music, English composer Boyce bridged the transition between Baroque and Classical Eras.

Thirty minutes prior to the show, a short serenade by NJIO’s Prelude Ensemble will be led by conductor Robert Anderson.

Summit High School is located at 125 Kent Place Boulevard.

Mr. Market is convinced the FAANGs are impervious to a sell-off. “Its different this time” is ringing loud and clear, but will the outcome really be that ...
