The Whitehouse Wind Symphony, under the direction of Branchburg resident James P. Sheeley, Jr., and the Hunterdon Harmonizers Barbershop Chorus, under the direction of Don Reckenbeil, will be performing a free outdoor concert on Saturday, June 10th at 4pm at Borough Park in Flemington, NJ. The concert, sponsored by Mediatech Foundation, will include a wide variety of enjoyable patriotic music.
This concert is free and open to the general public, although a good-will offering will be taken to benefit the band and chorus, both non-profit groups comprised entirely of volunteer musicians. Concertgoers of all ages, from the youngest to the young at heart, are encouraged to attend, and to bring picnic blankets and chairs. In the event of inclement weather, the concert will be moved into the historic courthouse.
The Whitehouse Wind Symphony was founded by conductor emeritus Casey Bork in 1996. Since its founding, the band has grown rapidly, attracting experienced musicians as regular members from all over New Jersey, as well as New York City and eastern Pennsylvania; it is now comprised of approximately 50 amateur and professional musicians who perform together regularly to enthusiastic audiences throughout central and northern New Jersey. It was recently voted winner of the “Hunterdon Happening” list in the category of favorite musician/band for the third consecutive year. The ensemble continues to present the best in all varieties of wind band literature. For more information, please visit whitehousewindsymphony.org or facebook.com/WhitehouseWind.
