The Newark Symphonic Winds, under the baton of director Richard Wong, is composed of amateur, semi-professional and professional musicians. The NSW was established to provide the Tri-City area with a high-quality symphonic wind ensemble. In doing so, we have given area musicians the opportunity to develop their skills and expand their musical horizons. Importantly, the NSW provides quality musical education, entertainment and performances throughout our local communities.
The NSW also works to support and expand Arts and Music programs in our area schools. We strongly believe that instruction in the Arts, and specifically Music programs, forms an integral component of a well-rounded and comprehensive education that the young people in our communities deserve.
