The New Jersey Youth Symphony presents A Concert for Peace: Marvin Hamlisch’s Anatomy of Peace and Leonard Bernstein’s Symphony No. 1 Jeremiah on Saturday, February 26. As we enter a new year full of hope, together we celebrate peace and the joy of music.
Based on a book by Emery Reves, Anatomy of Peace is the one-movement symphonic suite by Marvin Hamlisch embracing the central theme of reconciliation and world peace. A Lindermann Young Artist at the MET, Cierra Byrd is the featured soloist in Leonard Bernstein’s Jeremiah Symphony. The award-winning New Jersey Youth Chorus joins the NJYS Youth Symphony in what is sure to be a moving concert tribute to the ideals of peace and how we can transform our world into one that is more equal, more just, equitable, inclusive, sustainable, and harmonious.
