WESTFIELD—On Thursday, Dec. 31, at 7 p.m., the Westfield Symphony Orchestra will present one of New Jersey’s most popular New Year’s Eve musical celebrations. This year’s performance, “The Great American Songbook,” is a revue of American musical theater classics presented in symphonic splendor.
This year’s program is a Who’s Who of the best of American musical theater – Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein, Stephen Sondheim and John Kander and Fred Ebb are just some of the composers celebrated in the show, which also features international guest vocalists direct from the Broadway stage.
“The Great American Songbook” is a family friendly cabaret–style concert for adults to reminisce to songs they all know, for kids to enjoy some of the more peculiar characters to grace Broadway’s stage, and for all to enjoy the music of some of America’s finest composers and professional performers.
The concert will take place in the newly refurbished Westfield High School auditorium, 550 Dorian Road in Westfield, and will finish at approximately 9 p.m.
The WSO recommends making reservations early; last year’s concert was a sell-out. Advance tickets are $35 for general admission and $65 for preferred seating ($40 and $70 at the door, if available.)
Tickets may be purchased directly from the WSO by calling 1-908-232-9400 or visiting the office at 224 E. Broad Street, Westfield . Tickets are also available from The Town Bookstore in Westfield, Martin Jewelers in Cranford and Paperfolio in Summit.
