Capital Philharmonic of New Jersey will bring holiday classics to Trenton with festive performances and seasonal favorites on Sunday, December 5 at 4:00 p.m. at the historic Patriot’s Theatre in the War Memorial in Trenton, NJ.
Guest soprano and former Ms. Rhode Island, Gianine Campbell, will bring a joyful music afternoon as masterful conductor Daniel Spalding leads the full 70-member orchestra on a journey through holiday splendor.
Enjoy seasonal favorites like “Carol of The Bells”, “O Holy Night (Cantique de Noel),” “My Grown-Up Christmas Wish,” and “March of The Toys” with the whole family. Early arrivals will receive holiday serenades from renowned virtuosic organist, Brett Miller, beginning at 3:30 p.m.
The second of six concerts this season, “Classical Christmas” is part of the orchestra’s robust 2021-2022 annual program, aimed at bringing live classical music back to the center of Trenton. Future concerts include the ever-popular New Year’s Eve concert (featuring Leroy Anderson’s brilliantly entertaining “The Typewriter”), Porgy and Bess, Carnival of the Animals (featuring favorite orchestral personifications), and an ode to the Genius of John Williams.
“We are beginning a new era for Trenton as we launch our 9th season,” says Music Director, Daniel Spalding. “I invite everyone to join me and our musicians, dedicated board members, and volunteers in a journey of hope to restore and reinvigorate the musical life in Trenton. We will do it with passion for the traditions we hold dear but also mindful of our changing times.”
Currently, all orchestra members and production staff are fully vaccinated in order to participate in CPNJ concerts and events. All adults and children over 12 years of age must show proof of vaccination and be masked at all times. Children under the age of 12 may enter the theatre without proof of vaccination but must also be masked for the duration of their visit.

“The CPNJ is about: presenting world-class music using our very own local wealth of resources, engaging our community, and contributing to Trenton’s own renaissance,” Spalding said.
