SUMMIT, NJ -- The New Jersey Intergenerational Orchestra will bring concertgoers back to a simpler time with their concert, “The Spirit of 1850,” on Sunday, May 6 at the Lawton C. Johnson Summit Middle School. The performance will begin at 3 p.m., and will feature performances from all three of NJIO’s orchestral ensembles, as well as its Flute Choir.

Admission is free; donations are gratefully accepted.

NJIO’s Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Artistic Director Warren Cohen, will be performing the monumental Symphony #1 by Camille Saint-Saens. While not as well known as his other works, including the Organ Symphony and The Carnival of the Animals, the piece includes trademark elements of the French composer’s dazzling musicality and breadth of scope. The symphony captured the spirit of the rise in French nationalism and the military might of Napoleon III, with augmented percussion sections and military fanfares. The work earned him both numerous awards as well as recognition for his talent from, amongst others, composers Hector Berlioz and Franz Liszt.

NJIO’s Symphony will also perform the delightful Overture to Pique Dame by Franz Von Suppe and the melancholy Reverie for Horn by Alexander Glazunov, with Lisa Nettleship performing.  Intermezzo Orchestra will be performing Les Indes Galantes by Rameau and Rhosymedre by Vaughan Williams.  Be sure to arrive half an hour early to catch Prelude Ensemble’s performance in the lobby, and Flute Choir’s performance at intermission!

Lawton C. Johnson Summit Middle School is located at 272 Morris Avenue.

A Royal Pain

I went to a big wedding over the weekend.  It was in England.

I like to think I was invited, but according to the Royal Guards and the Thames Valley Police I was not.  But more about that later.
