The New Brunswick Chamber Orchestra kicks off a new season of Reframing Classical Music with “Beginnings” on October 30 at 3pm, featuring works by Haydn, Beethoven, Nyman, Shaw, and Riley. This salon series introduces visitors to what inspires the orchestra members, who perform short, theme-based works mixed with tastings, wine pours, and conversation in an informal atmosphere. The program is free and open to the public.
