Spend a summer evening enjoying a free concert by the Tri-Cities' 40-musician symphony under the direction of Richard Wong. The Newark Symphonic Winds will be offering an outstanding variety of music on Saturday, June 7 at their 10th annual free ÒSummer Concert.Ó
This evening's wonderful arrangements include MozartÕs ÒRequiem,Ó ÒThe Great Waldo Pepper MarchÓ by Henry Mancini, a medley of tunes by the remarkable Stevie Wonder, ÒA Jubilant OvertureÓ by Alfred Reed, favorite pieces depicting our western heritage such as ÒRed River ValleyÓ and ÒThe Yellow Rose of Texas,Ó and some of the most popular themes from recent blockbuster movies including ÒThe Lone Ranger,Ó ÒSpider Man,Ó and ÒThe Incredibles.Ó
There also will be a special performance of ProkofievÕs ÒPeter and the WolfÓ by the Newark Woodwind Quintet. Their performance will be narrated by the Honorable Dave Smith, Mayor Emeritus - City of Newark.
This free performance (no tickets are necessary) is sponsored by the Fremont Bank Foundation. Plan to arrive a little early as a capacity audience is expected.
