HILLSBOROUGH: Monster snowstorm fizzles out

Hillsborough reacted Monday to the possibility of a monster snowstorm by pulling together all the elements of municipal and emergency services to muster programs used in other recent storms.

Ultimately, when the Juno snowstorm blew eastward, all the township got was a run-of-the-mill winter storm of maybe 6 to 8 inches.

All elements of Hillsborough’s emergency response services huddled Monday morning to prepare for the conditions weather forecasters had foreseen.



Schedule Change for Princeton University Concerts
Stefan Jackiw will take place of Isabelle Faust on Feb. 5
PRINCETON University Concerts has announced that violinist Isabelle Faust has had to cancel her concert with Alexander Melnikov scheduled for Feb. 5 at Richardson Auditorium in Alexander Hall on the Princeton University Campus. In her place violinist Stefan Jackiw who will perform a duo program with pianist Anna Polonksy of works by Ravel, Witold Lutoslawski, Kaija Saariaho and Franck. The date and time of the concert will remain the same.

   In a press release, Marna Seltzer, director of the Princeton University Concerts Series said, “We are disappointed not to be able to hear Faust and Melnikov but given the fast and international trajectory of their career I feel certain that we will have the opportunity to hear them in Princeton in a future season. This cancellation gives us a chance to introduce our audience to a pair of artists who are among the most remarkable players of today’s generation. Jackiw’s playing is very much in the spirit of the concert that we were to hear. He is a remarkable musician whose playing is marked by poetry and purity combined with an impeccable technique, which is something I might also have ascribed to Isabelle Faust. For that reason, this is an ideal substitution and I feel sure that our audience is in for a real treat.”

   Mr. Jackiw’s program will include Maurice Ravel’s “Tzigane,” Witold Lutoslawski’s Partita,” Kaija Saariaho “Nocturne in memory of W. Lutoslawski” and César Franck’s Sonata in A Major.
