The latest Montclair Orchestra Family Concert held Sunday, Nov. 3, contained a selection of pieces aimed at both kids and general audience. This year again it received an enthusiastic reception from youngsters and adults alike hearing the power of unamplified music, performed by a roster of 30 accomplished musicians and advanced music students.

Children also got a special treat with an instrument petting zoo.

Additionally, Andre Weker, Montclair Orchestra founder and president, announced that the Board of Directors are “taking the first steps towards establishing a full, year-round orchestra program to serve young musicians in Montclair and throughout New Jersey.”
