From Our Conductor

Dear Friends of the Orchestra,

Hoping that these months of summer have been peaceful and grace-filled for each of you, I write to share some wonderful plans for the upcoming season. We’re already preparing our Christmas Tour of fifteen concerts throughout the Metro area. The Spring of 2018 will bring a uniquely staged presentation of Puccini’s beloved opera, MADAME BUTTERFLY! In a joint venture with The Algonquin Theater and our Festival of the Atlantic, Soprano Victoria Cannizzo will bring to life the most endearing character of all Puccini opera on the stage of the Algonquin in Manasquan on April 29, 2018. Complete with lighting, costumes and full orchestra, this is a performance you will NOT want to miss!

Father Alphonse J. Stephenson

Antonio Morra (Snare Drum)

Congratulations to our latest Cecelia Foundation winners:
