Jason Tramm to Conduct the Adelphi Orchestra in 2017 SACRED MASTERWORKS Concert

On August 27th at 7PM noted American conductor Jason Tramm leads the award-winning Adelphi Orchestra, the 150-member Ocean Grove Choir, virtuoso organist Gordon Turk, with featured soloists soprano Monica Ziglar, soprano Claire Leyden, mezzo Soprano Cynthia Cook, Metropolitan Opera tenor Ronald Naldi and bass Justin Beck in a program of French masterworks entitled "In the Footsteps of Our Savior."

Camille Saint-Saëns glorious Oratorio de Noël, Opus 12, or "Christmas Oratorio" begins the program coupled with Théodore Dubois's oratorio, the famous Les sept paroles du Christ or "Seven Last Words of Christ." Both works by countrymen and contemporary musicians Théodore Dubois (1837-1924) and Camille Saint Saëns (1835-1921) represent the eloquence of the French romantic movement in music characterized by, logic, clarity, fine melody, drama and a refined sense of taste.

This year's Sacred Masterworks Concert continues a musical journey Tramm has explored during his 2017 Season beginning with The Morris Choral Society's New Jersey premiere of Karl Jenkins "The Peacemakers" and continuing with the classical concert "Prayer for Peace: The Power of One Voice" taking place on October 27th at NJPAC.

As with Ocean Grove's 63rd Annual Choir Festival (the largest concert event on the East Coast featuring a massed choir of over 1,000 voices accompanied by the Great Auditorium Brass Ensemble and the Auditorium's magnificent Hope-Jones organ). "In the Footsteps of Our Savior" musically celebrates the example and life of Christ. Widely recognized by all faiths as western civilization's greatest religious philosopher, Christ's teachings have had a profound impact on peacemakers and humanitarians of other cultures, notably Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi who employed nonviolent civil disobedience and led India to independence, inspiring movements for civil rights and freedom across the world.

The Adelphi Orchestra, making its 3rd annual appearance as guest orchestra at the Jersey Shore's historic Great Auditorium with the Sacred Masterworks Concert, demonstrates the orchestra's continued affinity for the music of French composers. The Adelphi Orchestra's New York City concert "Une Fête en France" at Merkin Concert Hall, Kaufman Music Center (2017) successfully followed 2016's well-received presentation of Maurice Ravel's Ma mère l'Oye "Mother Goose Suite" complete with an original work of ballet commissioned by the Adelphi Orchestra.

Jason Tramm was featured in Symphony Magazine's 2012 Issue of Emerging Artists and hailed as a conductor to watch, and is recognized as one of the most dynamic young conductors on the podium today. The 2009 HDTV broadcast presentation with PBS affiliate NJN, "Verdi Requiem: Live from Ocean Grove" with Tramm at the podium, garnered a regional Emmy Award nomination.

As Director of Music in Residence of the Ocean Grove Camp Meeting Association for the past 11 years, Jason Tramm leads the choral, orchestral, and oratorio performances in the 6500-seat historic Great Auditorium, appearing in two National Public Radio broadcasts with organ virtuoso, Gordon Turk and large orchestra.

Tramm is an Assistant Professor at Seton Hall University, College of Communication and the Arts where he leads the University, Choir, Chamber Choir and teaches voice and conducting. Tramm currently serves as Music Director of the Morris Choral Society, Adelphi Orchestra conductor and Artistic Advisor and principal conductor of the Metastatic Opera with whom he made his Carnegie Hall debut in 2015. A frequent guest conductor, Maestro Tramm has led operatic and symphonic performances in Albania, Hungary, Italy and Romania, recently returning from the 2017 Narnia Festival where he led the Festival's premiere productions of Puccini's "Gianni Chichi" and "Sour Angelica." On October 27, 2017 Tramm will lead the classical concert "Prayer for Peace: The Power of One Voice" at NJPAC.
