Across Time

June 12 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm

$5 – $40

Morristown, NJ– The Baroque Orchestra of New Jersey (BONJ) presents a concert entitled Across Time at a special time of 2 p.m. Sunday, June 12 at Dolan Hall at Saint Elizabeth University at 2 Convent Road, Morristown, New Jersey.

Across Time will feature works from the Classical, Romantic and 21st century musical eras.

There will be a premier performance of Strings Along the Seine composed by Robert Butts the musical director of the BONJ. Dr. Butts has had over 40 of his compositions performed worldwide and is twice a finalist in the Traynor Composition Competition.

There will be a second premier performance with Stanley Alexandrowicz as soloist playing Dr. Butts Guitar Concerto. Mr. Alexandrowicz has premiered and commissioned over 100 works throughout the world. He is an international performer and recording artist, playing music from the Romantic and contemporary periods in solo, orchestral and chamber music formats.

The orchestra will perform the Overture to Il Signor Bruschino. This Classical opera was composed by Gioachino Rossini in 1813 when Rossini was 21. The work is one of five one act farces that he composed early in his career. Time has proven this to be the most popular of Rossini’s farces, though it premiered poorly.

Symphony #4 (The Italian Symphony) by Felix Mendelssohn is the fourth piece. Mendelssohn wrote the Romantic piece at age 24 while traveling through Europe in 1833. While he later revised the work, the original remains the most popular.
Full program is to be decided and subject to change.
