A new opportunity to learn about how this early area of Maplewood, bordered by the Maplewood Country Club golf course, the Morris and Essex rail line, and Maplewood Middle School, evolved from farmland in the 19th and early 20th centuries to today’s cohesive suburban neighborhood.
Classical Maplewood offers easily accessible, bite-sized classical works to satisfy both the seasoned aficionado and casual listener. To create a uniquely intimate environment, the performers and audience will be seated feet from one another on the main floor of the Woodland’s Great Hall. The program includes selections from Mozart, Strauss, Tchaikovsky, Dvorak and others. Members of the Columbia High School Virtuosi Ensemble will perform selections from the “Holberg Suite” by Edvard Grieg. This concert is free and open to the public. No reservations required.
Inspired by the 1989 Broadway Musical Revue, Progressive Theater celebrates one year of being the change they want to see in the arts with a color-coordinated event. With this fundraiser, Progressive Theater plans to increase accessibility to the arts with an evening of FREE theater for communities that have limited exposure.
