Newark Symphonic Winds free holiday concert
Submitted By Jim Carter
Come and enjoy an evening of holiday music provided free-of-charge by the Tri-City Areas' 40-musician symphony - the Newark Symphonic Winds - directed by Richard Wong. The night will be filled with surprises, including a performance by the Montecito Brass Quintet, a reading of "'twas the night before Christmas" and a community sing-along.
Formed in 2005, the Newark Symphonic Winds (NSW) is a nonprofit, 40-piece wind ensemble composed of professional, semi-professional and amateur musicians from our communities led by musical director and conductor Mr. Richard Wong.
The NSW works closely with the community to encourage and support arts and music programs in schools and the community at-large. Its repertoire includes some of the most beloved music written; such as classical works, Broadway and film selections, jazz compositions and marches. Their performances often feature guest artists, both vocal and instrumental.
