The Brook Orchestra will perform their winter concert on Sunday, January 19, 2020 at 3 pm. Under the direction of Thomas Vacca, the orchestra will present selections by Grieg, Beethoven, and Schubert. The featured piece will be Schubert’s Unfinished Symphony.
This concert is Vacca’s debut performance., however, he is certainly not new to the wielding of the baton, as he has conducted the Rutgers Sinfonia, Ravina Youth Symphony and the Princeton Charter School Orchestra. Since taking up his new position as conductor, Vacca has doubled the size of the orchestra, by drawing on "great professional relationships” His plans for the future include enlarging the orchestra's string section, performing more concerts each season, and expanding its repertoire with both advanced symphonic works and familiar favorites, including popular music of quality. Vacca sees a great opportunity for the orchestra and the Brook Arts Center to bring classical music to Bound Brook and Central Jersey.
The Historic Brook Theater, located at 10 Hamilton Street in Bound Brook, is dedicated providing affordable quality entertainment and to encouraging and nurturing the arts in Somerset County. The Brook Orchestra is in residence at the Brook Arts Center.
