The Voorhees Art Commission is pleased to present “Classics by Candlelight,” a candlelight concert featuring the South Garden Strings quartet on May 6, 2023, at 8:00 PM. The concert will be held at the Voorhees Town Center in Voorhees, NJ.
“Classics by Candlelight” is a fantastic opportunity to create an intimate and unique musical experience for Voorhees residents and the surrounding communities, says Gabrielle Horvitz, the event’s producer and a member of the Voorhees Art Commission advisory board. The event aims to highlight talented and gifted musicians in South Jersey and to provide the community with a professional concert experience without having to travel into the city.
The featured musicians for this concert are the exceptional South Garden Strings quartet, a classical and pops string quartet based in Southern New Jersey. The quartet’s violinist, Jaress Laroo, was concertmaster with a California-based pop orchestra and now serves as concertmaster with the South Jersey Pops. The musical selections for the event will include both classical and contemporary genres, ensuring that there is something for everyone.
The Voorhees Arts Commission is dedicated to making culture and creativity essential parts of the Township’s strategy for revitalizing the community, improving arts education, and promoting economic development. The Commission has partnered with both for-profit and nonprofit organizations to accomplish this goal. As such, the “Classics by Candlelight” event is an excellent opportunity to support the arts in Voorhees and the surrounding communities.
