Adelphi Orchestra To Celebrate National Arts And Humanities Month

The Adelphi Orchestra launches its 67th Season of "Music for All" with "A Celebration of Rebirth & Renewal" on October 24 at 2 PM.

The orchestra's traditional season premiere concert held each year in October honors National Arts and Humanities Month and Discover Jersey Arts and has been made possible in part by a grant administered by the Bergen County Department of Parks, Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs from funds granted by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.

"A Celebration of Rebirth & Renewal" represents the orchestra's reimagined season and a return to live performance. The concert, coproduced by Musae in association with St. John's in the Village and Denise Marsa Productions, will take place live, without an audience, with real-time broadcast via live-stream utilizing Musae's innovative 360-degree, immersive technology platform. Concert viewing will be available via donation with pricing ranging from $5-$100 and can be secured online at

October is National Arts & Humanities Month (NAHM)-a coast-to-coast collective recognition of the importance of culture in America. NAHM was launched by Americans for the Arts and national arts partners as a month-long celebration, with goals of: FOCUSING on equitable access to the arts at local, state, and national levels;

ENCOURAGING individuals, organizations, and diverse communities to participate in the arts; ALLOWING governments and businesses to show their support of the arts, and RAISING public awareness about the role the arts and humanities play in our communities and lives. Given the decimating impact of the COVID pandemic on our nation's Arts and Humanities sector, the Adelphi Orchestra asks you to support the campaign "Be an Arts Hero" #ArtsHero"
