ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (April 27, 2017) — The Bay Atlantic Symphony is heading “downbeach” to Margate, with a star-spangled addition to a vibrant summer concert schedule. On Monday, July 3, 2017 at 7 p.m., the symphony will perform a free concert of patriotic music at the Potena Performing Arts Center, located at 7804 Amherst Avenue in Margate City, New Jersey.

Tickets can be obtained by visiting the Margate City Library at 8100 Atlantic Avenue in Margate. Tickets for the general public (up to two per household) will be available beginning Monday, June 19.
Under the baton of Music Director Jed Gaylin, the orchestra’s 50 plus professional musicians will perform a variety of patriotic and soul-stirring compositions such as “Armed Forces The Pride of America,” “Star Spangled Banner,” Copland’s “John Henry,” John Philip Sousa’s “Stars and Stripes Forever,” and Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture to name just a few.
In honor of Independence Day, this free concert is made possible through a partnership with the City of Margate, Dr. Thomas Giegerich, Margate Board of Education, Margate Library, and Friends of the Symphony.

For over 30 years, the Bay Atlantic Symphony has ‘spread its wings’ reaching audiences in five Southern New Jersey counties. Many of our loyal patrons come from Margate, and now we are able to return the favor and come to them,” added Soifer.
“The Symphony’s patriotic concert performances are second to none. I consider it my privilege to be part of the collaboration of partners making this concert event possible,” added Dr. Thomas Giegerich, event sponsor and a member of the Symphony’s Board of Trustees.
