Ocean County College welcomes back a summer tradition with the New Jersey Symphony’s outdoor concert on June 27 at 8 p.m. on OCC’s main campus in Toms River. The family-friendly program, sponsored by the Ocean County College Foundation, is open to the public; admission and parking are free of charge.
Enjoy a beautiful evening of music under the stars featuring John Williams’ Theme from Jurassic Park, selections from Leonard Bernstein’s West Side Story, William Grant Still’s Festive Overture, Sousa’s Stars and Stripes Forever and more. José Luis Domínguez, the New Jersey Symphony Youth Orchestra Artistic Director, will conduct.
“We are so very pleased to welcome back the New Jersey Symphony once again this year for our entire community to enjoy. There is just something magical about live orchestral music, performed by such talented professional artists, under the summer night sky,” said Kenneth J. Malagiere, executive director of the OCC Foundation. “On behalf of our Board Chair, David Paulus, and entire Foundation Board, we thank you – one and all – for your continued support of our Foundation and Ocean County College.”

About the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra
The Emmy and Grammy Award-winning New Jersey Symphony, celebrating its centennial season in 2022–23, is redefining what it means to be a nationally leading, relevant orchestra in the 21st century. We are renewing our deeply rooted commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion by championing new, and often local, artists; engaging audiences for whom the inspiring depth and breadth of classical music will be new; and incorporating the broadest possible representation in all aspects of our organization—all to better reflect and serve our vibrant communities. Since 2021, Music Director Xian Zhang has worked together with composer, violinist, educator and social-justice advocate Daniel Bernard Roumain, the orchestra’s resident artistic catalyst, to offer programming that connects with diverse communities in Newark and throughout New Jersey.
