BERKELEY HEIGHTS — The New Jersey Intergenerational Orchestra will present its winter concert at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 13 at the Madison Junior High School on 160 Main Street, Madison. Solo cellist 14-year-old Sophia Bacelar, winner of the 2010 Young Artists Concerto Competition, will be the featured performer during the Hayden Cello Concerto in D Major with the NJIO Symphony conducted by Joe Gluck.

The musical program includes works by Grieg, Williams, Khachaturian, J. Strauss, Jr. and Hayden and is the second of three free concerts produced and performed by the NJIO for community involvement and appreciation of classical music.
