New Jersey Festival Orchestra

Ring in the New Year with NJFO! One of New Jersey's most popular New Year's Eve musical festivities, this year's cabaret-style celebration, "PUTTIN' ON THE RITZ" promises a superb review of American stage, screen and television musicals presented in glorious symphonic splendor that will be appreciated by young and not-so-young alike'

 

This year's family-friendly program reads like a Who's Who of the best of American musical theater. It's a chance for adults to reminisce to songs they all know, for kids to learn more about and enjoy some of the most exciting characters to grace the stage and screen, and for us all to revel in the genius of America's finest composers. Featuring international guest vocalists direct from the Broadway stage and beyond, this is a musical celebration eagerly anticipated by much of central New Jersey.

 

Concert will finish at approximately 9 PM. Patrons are advised to purchase tickets well in advance as this concert has been a sell out for the past five years.

Concert presented through the generous support of
THE WESTFIELD FOUNDATION
