From traditional to pops, choral favorites to musical theater classics, this season of NJ Festival Orchestra concerts will fill the entire family with holiday cheer.
 
On Saturday, December 6 at 7pm join Maestro David Wroe and NJFO musicians at the Presbyterian Church in Westfield for Home for the Holidays, a family festival of symphonic pops, traditional and contemporary songs and music, sing-a-longs and more guaranteed to make the season merry.  
 
This seasonal stroll of timeless classics and sentimental holiday favorites, made possible in part by a HEART (History, Education, Arts Reaching Thousands) Grant from the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders, is sure to bring joy, smiles, and distinctive holiday memories to all. Tickets prices range from $26 to $75 for adults and there is a special discount price of only $13 for students K-12, making this event a perfect start to the holiday season for the whole family.
 
On Wednesday, December 31st, at 7pm, the NJ Festival Orchestra again presents one of New Jersey’s most popular New Year’s Eve musical celebrations. This year’s performance, The Guys and Dolls of Broadway, promises a superb revue of American musical theater favorites presented in glorious symphonic splendor.
 
The cabaret style New Year’s Eve celebration has become a musical event eagerly anticipated by much of central New Jersey. This year’s line up reads like a Who's Who of the best of American musical theater composers and again features renowned guest vocalists direct from the Broadway stage. Patrons are advised to purchase tickets well in advance as this concert has been a sell out for the past five years.
  
The NYE concert will take place in the Westfield High School auditorium, 550 Dorian Road in Westfield, and will finish at approximately 9pm. Tickets in advance are $40 for general admission and $70 for preferred seating ($45 and $75 at the door, if available.)

Tickets for both concerts are available on line at www.njfestivalorchestra.org. Tickets may also be purchased by calling (908) 232-9400 or visiting the office at 224 E. Broad Street, Westfield (10am-3pm).
