The NEW JERSEY WIND SYMPHONY presents a recording of All AMERICAN composers including the world premiere of Jeffrey Kaufman’s “Court and Jester” for Piano and 23 Winds, and the George Gershwin “Second Rhapsody for Piano and Orchestra” in a very unusual transcription for concert band and piano, both works performed by pianist Ron Levy. Also on the program are three vocal selections performed by soprano Kristen Plumley.
