As part of the Riverside Symphonia’s 33rd season, the symphony will once again return to South Hunterdon Regional High School for the beloved “Around the World for the Holidays” concert.
The Riverside Symphonia’s annual holiday concert traditionally marks the start of the season’s celebrations for many in the area and this year’s presentation will bring a variety of classical and pop holiday music offerings from Germany, Italy, Poland, France, Israel, Spain, Mexico, and the USA! Audience members new and old will love the surprise selections for this year that will create an unforgettable festive experience.
“The bi-annual appearance of our Caprio winner as a special soloist is a treasured tradition that not only gives the students and young artists a chance to perform with a professional symphony, but it also ensures that a new generation of performers continue to foster the great legacy of music tradition in the Lambertville/New Hope area.” said Paul Kuhl, Chair of the Riverside Symphonia Board.
Among the surprise musical selections from around the world, the concert will feature the illuminating soprano Ethel Trujillo, as well as Yvonne Wang, who was the 2022 Caprio Young Artist Competition winner.

This is a performance designed to appeal to both music lovers and aspiring young performers alike.

The lyrical panache of the program will conjure up a feeling of reflection and warmth, and a mood of great joy will radiate for all to hear.
