Symphony Season Subsides

PLAINFIELD — The Plainfield Symphony closes out its 93rd season Saturday evening with a program celebrating Guiseppe Verdi’s 200th birthday.

The Oratorio Singers of Westfield will join the symphony to present an evening of orchestral, choral and vocal selections from one of the great Romantic composers of the 19th century.

Following the closing concert, the Plainfield Symphony will honor Principal Flautist Leslie Pruess at a traditional Conductor’s Circle After-Concert Party.

Selections from La Traviata, Nabucco, Aida and other operas will be performed under the direction of Michael Avagliano with Chorus Director Trent Johnson, widely known as the organist at Westfield’s First United Methodist Church.

Tickets for the performance are $50/person for reserved seating, $30/regular and $20/seniors and students, and may be purchased at the door of the Crescent Avenue Presbyterian Church, East 7th Street and Watchung Avenue.
