New Jersey Symphony
Join us for the New Jersey Symphony’s return to the Victoria Theater at NJPAC for an all-new family concert experience. The Symphony will take audiences on a musical journey across several art forms through which stories can be told. The afternoon will feature thrilling music from Bizet’s classic opera Carmen, John Williams’ iconic and magical “Hedwig’s Theme” from Harry Potter and Mendelssohn’s playful Scherzo from A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
Nimbus Dance will delight adults and children alike, joining the Symphony for selections from Tchaikovsky’s timeless masterpiece The Nutcracker and Arturo Márquez’s zestful Danzón No. 2, a popular work inspired by Cuban dance.
