Lambertville, NJ – It’s remarkable that the small town of Lambertville has a professional symphony orchestra, but it has for the past 33 years! The Riverside Symphonia offers high caliber performances and the ever-popular July 4 “Concert Under the Stars” at Tinicum Park  each year. To ensure a strong start to its 34th season, the Riverside Symphonia invites the  Delaware River Valley community on both sides of the river to a fun food + drinks + dancing  fundraising event at The Woolverton Inn on Thursday, August 31, from 4:30 – 7:30 pm. Enjoy  the always-smooth sounds of Michael Arenella and His Dreamland Orchestra and wear your  dance shoes if you like!  

“We had intended to have a birthday party for our 30th, but Covid scuttled those plans,” says  Executive Director Cullen McAuliffe. “While we weathered the pandemic with online  performances, grants and the generosity of our patrons, we’re thrilled to be back and hope to  build awareness of the Symphonia to expand our audience.”

“Small Town. Big Sound.” is the theme of the Aug. 31 outdoor party. It is designed to be a  casual, convivial event with catered hot and cold hors d’oeuvres, open bar and a live auction of  select items. Tickets are $100 per person, and sponsorship opportunities are available for area  businesses and individuals. RSVPs are due by August 25. 

“Our musicians are world-class, and we want to keep the music playing so more people in our  community can experience their performances,” says McAuliffe. “We launch with this  fundraiser and then look forward to our annual fall concert, followed by our popular holiday  concert.”  For additional information on tickets or sponsorship, please visit riversidesymphonia.org
