A Very Musical December

The NJIT Campus Center will be filled with music before the winter break, with performances by the NJIT String and Wind Ensembles, the Jazz Ensemble, and the Rutgers-Newark Chorus.

The Wind and String Ensembles will perform on December 14 in the Campus Center atrium.

The Wind Ensemble will open the December 14 program at 2:30. After a brief intermission, the String Ensemble will be joined for the first time by the Rutgers-Newark Chorus for a special holiday presentation of Antonio Vivaldi’s Gloria under the direction of Brian Preston Harlow.

The NJIT community is invited to enjoy the talent of the Jazz Ensemble on December 15. The group will perform in the lobby of the Campus Center beginning at 1:00 p.m.

Admission to all performances is free.

The Wind, String and Jazz Ensembles showcase the talent of NJIT students, faculty and staff. Anyone who plays an instrument is invited to join. Participating students may receive one credit through registration in THTR 220, 221, 222 — Instrumental Ensemble Performance — offered individually each semester by the NJIT Theatre Arts and Technology Program as part of NJIT’s Music Initiative.

The NJIT Wind Ensemble continues to be conducted by Nicholas Santoro, the String Ensemble by Karen Pinochi, and the Jazz Ensemble by David Rimelis. Support for the groups, especially for the purchase of instruments, has been provided by the NJIT Student Senate and Graduate Students Association.
