NEW JERSEY WIND SYMPHONY  Performing as part of OGCMA’s “Summer Stars Classical Series” and appearing with Guest Trumpetist Philip Smith, this unique orchestra was founded as the Ridgewood Concert Band in 1983 to provide high quality performing venues for the many accomplished wind and percussion players living in the New York Metropolitan area. The musicians of the NJWS are volunteers with day jobs ranging from lawyer to doctor to band director. NJWS programs vary from light classics and famous marches, to cutting edge compositions by today’s brilliant composers. The NJWS is regularly joined by world class soloists from the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, radio and television personalities, and other nationally renowned performers and conductors. The NJWS has performed on the East Coast and overseas, and was the recipient of the John Philip Sousa Foundation’s coveted Sudler Silver Scroll Award in 1996. The NJWS is actively engaged with area schools, offering the chance for talented young musicians to perform with the band through their Prelude Band Performance opportunities Youth Soloist Competition and Side By Side programs.
