Friday, Sept. 27, New Jersey Symphony Orchestra’s 2013-14 season opening-night program packed a punch that brought the heavily-sold audience to its feet…

...So twice in consecutive opening-night programs Maestro Jacques Lacombe has honoured, first American music in general and now, African-American music in particular. Kudos for the adventuresome programming.

Led by music director Jacques Lacombe, the program brought together jazz and gospel, classical and new sounds. Messages of unity ran throughout the concert, which included a reading of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech in honor of its 50th anniversary.
