New Jersey Symphony presents "The Sound of Stories" family concert with Nimbus Dance

(NEWARK, NJ) -- The New Jersey Symphony presents “The Sound of Stories: A Collaboration with Nimbus Dance,” a family concert that will take audiences on a musical journey across several art forms through which stories can be told. The afternoon will feature thrilling music from Bizet’s classic opera Carmen, John Williams’ iconic and magical “Hedwig’s Theme” from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and Mendelssohn’s playful Scherzo from A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Nimbus Dance will delight adults and children alike, joining the Symphony for selections from Tchaikovsky’s timeless masterpiece The Nutcracker and Arturo Márquez’s zestful Danzón No. 2, a popular work inspired by Cuban dance.

The performance takes place on May 22 at 2:00pm in the Victoria Theater at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark. All tickets are $10 and are available online at njsymphony.org or by phone at 1.800.ALLEGRO (255.3476).

New Jersey Symphony Assistant Conductor Tong Chen leads the concert. Jee-Hoon Krska, the founder of Newark music education program Keys 2 Success, hosts.

All New Jersey Symphony performances follow safety measures in partnership with the venues and based on the guidance provided by the CDC and the State of New Jersey.

The New Jersey Symphony will redefine what it means to be a nationally leading, relevant orchestra in the 21st century. Through adventurous performances, hands-on educational experiences and robust community programming, we encourage everyone to enjoy the power and creativity of orchestral music in all its forms. Across genres and venues, for audiences of all walks of life, we strive to bring music that’s meaningful to you, to you.

As we look toward celebrating our centennial, we are renewing our deeply rooted commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion by championing new, and often local, artists; engaging audiences for whom the inspiring depth and breadth of classical music will be new; and incorporating the broadest possible representation in all aspects of our organization—all to better reflect and serve our vibrant communities.

Our expansive educational offerings—including our youth orchestras, masterclasses and virtual learning opportunities—will build the next generation of listeners and musicians and help students grow, both musically and personally. And we will continue to seek new ways to connect with all New Jerseyans, through programs that resonate with a variety of cultural and musical backgrounds, as well as digital innovations that make our orchestra accessible to anyone, anywhere, anytime.
