Wind music has entertained audiences for centuries.

In Imperial Vienna, guests at most festive outdoor gatherings expected to be serenaded by groups of wind players, a tradition that gave us magnificent wind chamber music.

The evening includes a Mozart masterpiece and music of Hummel and Gounod, but also wind music of the 20th and 21st century chosen especially for the garden courtyard of The Newark Museum of Art.

  • Hummel Allegro con spirito from Octet Partita in E-flat Major
  • Mozart Serenade No. 12 for Winds in C Minor                                 
  • Amanda Harberg Hall of Ghosts                                    
  • Schultz Divertimento for Wind Octet
  • Stacy Garrop Bohemian Café 
  • Gounod Petite Symphonie
  • Dvořák/arr. Robert Wagner Slavonic Dance Op. 72, No. 7

Programs and artists are subject to change.

NMOA Summer Series is a partnership between The Newark Museum of Art & New Jersey Symphony.
