CLINTON, NJ - The Whitehouse Wind Symphony, a community band under the direction of Branchburg resident, James. P. Sheeley, Jr., will present a free outdoor concert on Sunday, Sept. 29, 2019 at 1:00pm on the terrace of the Hunterdon Art Museum (7 Lower Center Street, Clinton, NJ). This concert is presented in partnership with the Town of Clinton Recreation Commission and the Hunterdon Art Museum.

Says Mayor Janice Kovach, “It is always a highlight for me when the Whitehouse Wind Symphony Symphony plays in Clinton. It is a pleasure to be able to host them; Clinton is happy to welcome them back for the fourth year!”

The program for this family-friendly concert will feature patriotic tunes such as “America the Beautiful,” classic marches such as “Redetzky,” and selections from Broadway and film such as “Jesus Christ Superstar” and “Cats.” Audience members are encouraged to bring chairs. The concert is free and open to the general public, although donations will be accepted to benefit the band, a non-profit group comprised entirely of volunteer musicians. In the event of inclement weather, the announcement to cancel will be made on the band’s website (whitehousewindsymphony.org) and Facebook page (facebook.com/whitehousewind).

The Whitehouse Wind Symphony was founded by conductor emeritus Casey Bork on April 15, 1996.  It is dedicated to presenting the best in all varieties of wind band literature. Since its founding, the band has grown rapidly, attracting experienced musicians as regular members from all over New Jersey, as well as New York City and eastern Pennsylvania. It is now comprised of approximately 50 amateur and professional musicians who perform together regularly to enthusiastic audiences throughout central and northern New Jersey. It was recently voted a finalist in the Hunterdon Happening List in the category of favorite musician/band. For more information, including information about future performances, please send an email to whitehousewindsymphony@gmail.com.

Funding has been made possible in part by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts, through funds administered by the Hunterdon County Cultural & Heritage Commission.
