Plainfield Symphony Woodwind Quintet
The Plainfield Symphony Woodwind Quintet is comprised of Leslie Pruess (flute), Alan Birnbaum (oboe), Janet Vidovich (clarinet), Lee Doswell (bassoon) and Lisa Nettleship (french horn). They have been playing together with the Plainfield Symphony for years, in Alan's case for more than 40 years, and comprise the heart of an outstanding wind section. For more information about tonight's performers or the Plainfeld Symphony, please visit or call 908-561-5140.

The Plainfield Symphony is New Jersey's oldest community symphony having performed continuously in and around Plainfield since 1919. Conducted by Music Director Charles Prince, the orchestra performs most of its concerts at the historic Crescent Avenue Presbyterian Church on the corner of Seventh St. and Watchung Ave. in Plainfield. For their 92nd season, the symphony will perform a wide range of classical favorites including Beethoven's Fifth Symphony, Bartok's Violin Concerto No. 1, Schumann's Symphony No. 4, Rodrigo's Concierto de Aranjuez and Mahler's Symphony No. 4. Soloists include PSO Concertmaster Evelyn Estava, Spanish flamenco guitarist Pedro Javiar Gonzalez, touring opera soprano Lisa Daltirus and the winner of the Young Pianist Competition of New Jersey, Justin Wong. Plus, the symphony annually performs one Family Concert each season programmed for younger audiences and free to all.

Come and experience great performances in a historic setting right in your own back yard. Spring 2011 will feature three great shows including an evening of classical music. Please check back here for more details as we firm up artists.
