NJSO to Perform RHAPSODY IN BLUE in September

Music Director Jacques Lacombe and the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra open the NJSO's 2012–13 concert season on Friday, September 28, with an Opening Night Celebration featuring sensational pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet performing Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue on a program of Jazz-Age American music. The Orchestra presents works by John Harbison and Ferde Grofé as part of the New Jersey Roots Project, and the concert closes with the work of a master of the Jazz Age-Duke Ellington's Harlem.

The Opening Night concert begins at 7 p.m. at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark. Additional performances take place at the Mayo Performing Arts Center in Morristown on Saturday, September 29, at 3 p.m. and at NJPAC on Sunday, September 30, at 3 p.m. Special festivities surrounding the September 28 Opening Night performance include a pre-concert cocktail party and post-concert dinner.
