Busy Day, Part 2

In addition to the two events I mentioned in my last post, this Sunday, Oct. 18, has a few more tricks up its sleeve.

Cellist Sofia Nowik performs a solo concert at the Music at Saint Mary's series at 4 p.m. Nowik is a Juilliard Student and already a nationally known performer. The church is located 256 Augusta St., South Amboy. For more information, check out the MASM's website,

At St. James Church, 300 Broadway, Long Branch, organist Tom Colao offers a solo program of two pieces each by master composers and organists J.S. Bach, Maurice Durufle and Cesar Francik at 4:30 p.m. The pairs represent contrasts within each performer's style. The Bach selections, are the "St. Anne" Prelude and Fugue, and the E-flat major Trio Sonata. From Maurice Duruflé there will be the Scherzo op. 9 and Chorale variations on "Veni creator Spiritus " The César Franck selections are Pastorale and Choral in A minor.

Retired clergy member and brass band enthusiast Jacob Hohn writes "the Montclair music forces of The Salvation Army will be at The Salvation Army, Asbury Park, for a free concert" at 7 p.m. Hohn continues: "This brass band is considered one of the finest in the Eastern USA. Some of its players are internationally known in brass band circles. The bandmaster is Charles Baker, the principle trombonist with the NJ. Symphony."
