Galloway, N.J. - The Bay Atlantic Symphony will perform selections by Prokofiev and Mendelssohn at the Stockton Performing Arts Center on Sunday, May 7.  “Conversation with the Conductor,” Jed Gaylin, will be held in the L-Wing Gallery at 1 p.m.

Show time is 2 p.m.  Tickets are $32 and may be ordered online at or by calling the Box Office at (609) 652-9000.  The Box Office is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 90 minutes before the performance. 

Folklore is the watchword for this colorful panoply of dance and melody. Young superstar violinist Luosha Fang, of Curtis Institute of Music, joins the Bay-Atlantic Symphony for Prokofiev’s treacherous Second Concerto ending in a diabolically warped witch’s dance. Just as fiery is the conclusion to Mendelssohn’s Italian Symphony, featuring a scorpion-stung tarantella. Amidst all the adrenaline are some of the most haunting melodies from any continent.

The Bay Atlantic Symphony, Stockton’s ‘Orchestra-in-Residence,’ will perform the following selections:

Glinka Kamarinskaya; Fantasy for Orchestra on Two Russian Folksongs

Prokofiev Violin Concerto No. 2

Luosha Fang


Mendelssohn Symphony No. 4, Italian
