(TOMS RIVER, NJ) -- Ocean County College is thrilled to announce the return of a musical summer tradition! Join the community for a magical evening of live symphonic music with the New Jersey Symphony on Tuesday, June 25, 2024 at 8:00pm on OCC's main campus in Toms River. The family-friendly program is open to the public; admission and parking are free of charge.

Enjoy an evening of music featuring a medley of timeless classics, Broadway themes and patriotic favorites, including Tchaikovsky’s Polonaise from “Eugene Onegin,” Giuseppe Verdi’s Overture to “Nabucco,” and selections from Georges Bizet’s “Carmen” and Gershwin’s “Porgy and Bess.” This year’s program also celebrates the Garden State with pieces like John Williams’ “Liberty Fanfare,” John Philip Sousa’s “Atlantic City Pageant March” and other Jersey treasures. The concert is conducted by Joshua Gersen.

"We are delighted to welcome back the New Jersey Symphony to the Ocean County College campus for another beautiful summer evening concert for our local community,” said Kenneth J. Malagiere, executive director of the OCC Foundation. “The Ocean County College Foundation and the Ocean County Board of Commissioners, through a NJSCA grant to the Ocean County Cultural and Heritage Commission, are proud sponsors of this year's concert in support of the arts right here in Ocean County."

Attendees are encouraged to bring their own chairs or blankets for seating.
