NJSO Presents Debussy's La Mer, Prélude à L'après-midi D'un Faune

The New Jersey Symphony Orchestra presents Debussy's La mer and Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune alongside Britten's Four Sea Interludes from Peter Grimes, March 7-10. Ingrid Fliter performs Mendelssohn's First Piano Concerto; Jun Märkl conducts.

Performances take place on March 7 at 1:30 pm and March 8 at 8 pm at NJPAC in Newark; March 9 at 8 pm at the Count Basie Center for the Arts in Red Bank and March 10 at 3 pm at State Theatre New Jersey in New Brunswick.

Praised for her "grace and heartfelt sincerity" (Gramophone), Fliter has called Mendelssohn's First Piano Concerto "a celebration of life ... and an explosion of happiness" (Radio New Zealand).

NJSO Accent events include a Prelude Performance by performers from NJSO CHAMPS-the NJSO's El Sistema-inspired music instruction program-at 12:45 pm on March 7. Classical Conversations begin one hour before the March 8 and 9 performances. NJSO musicians give a behind-the-scenes talkback about the orchestral audition process after the March 10 concert.

The NJSO will collect non-perishable food items at all concerts as part of its annual food drive. More information on NJSO Accent events is available at njsymphony.org/accents.

Concert tickets start at $20 and are available for purchase at njsymphony.org or 1.800.ALLEGRO (255.3476).
