Formed in 2005, the Newark Symphonic Winds (NSW) is a fully nonprofit, 40 piece wind ensemble composed of professional, semi-professional and amateur musicians from our communities. The NSW is led by musical director and conductor Mr. Richard Wong. The NSW and their smaller ensembles entertain audiences throughout area with numerous performances during the year.
Their repertoire includes some of the most beloved music written; such as classical works, Broadway and film selections, jazz compositions and marches. Performances often feature guest artists, both vocal and instrumental. The NSW works closely with the community to encourage and support arts and music programs in schools and the community at-large.
NWS's 7th Annual Free Holiday Concert will be held on Saturday, December 17 at 7 p.m.

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.
