NJSO Performs Oct. 28-31

The New Jersey Symphony Orchestra on Oct. 28 will begin performing its program "Russian Tales," including Prokofiev's Symphony No. 5 and Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 2, with Dudana Mazmanishvili as soloist. Also on the program is a suite from "Black Maskers" by Roger Sessions, the late Princeton University composer and professor.
The Sessions is part of the NJSO's newly initiated "New Jersey Roots" project, exploring the wealth of material by composers connected to the Garden State. The NJ Roots project is one of the most exciting initiatives undertaken by the group's new director, Jacques Lacombe and I'm eager to see and hear how it plays out.

Performances are 1:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 28, and 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 29, at New Jersey Performing Arts Center, One Center Street, Newark, with following performances 8 p.m. Saturday at the State Theater New Brunswick and 3 p.m. Sunday at the Community Theater in Morristown.
