(MADISON, NJ) -- Morris Arts invites you to join them in celebrating their 50th Anniversary at this year’s Giralda Music & Arts Festival on Sunday, June 25th on the grounds of the Giralda Farms (Dodge Drive and Madison Ave./Rt. 124., Madison). Gates open at 3:00pm with a pre- show performance at 4:00pm and New Jersey Symphony performance at 6:00pm. Along with musical performances, there will be an art show and sale, children’s activities, 50/50 raffle, and food trucks.

The New Jersey Symphony is also celebrating a big anniversary – its centennial! Their program features a medley of timeless classics including selections from Jurassic Park and West Side Story, William Grant Still’s lively Festive Overture and so much more. An inspiring performance by Timothy Lien, winner of the New Jersey Symphony Youth Orchestra’s Henry Lewis Concerto Competition, rounds out this concert of favorites the whole family will love.

New Jersey Symphony’s Director of Marketing and Communications, Sarah Hornblower said, “We are thrilled to continue our long-standing partnership with Morris Arts and celebrate our milestone anniversaries at this year’s Giralda Music & Arts Festival! It’s always such a joy to bring orchestral music to the vibrant community of Madison at this beautiful outdoor setting.”

This year’s pre-show performance is by The Tia Holt Experience. As a vocal powerhouse, Tia uniquely mixes and blends genres to taste and the recipe is truly intoxicating. She is the voice you need to hear and the experience you need to have.

Morris Arts’ Executive Director, Tom Werder says, “Morris Arts is thrilled to kick off the summer with the 39th Giralda Music & Arts festival. We continue the celebration of our 50th Anniversary with this wonderful celebration of art and music for the whole family.”
