Start the summer right by attending the Arts Council of the Morris Area’s fabulous Giralda Music and Arts Festival on Sunday, June 26, 2011.  Held in Madison, NJ on the gracious lawns of Giralda Farms (the former Geraldine R. Dodge estate), this event features a spectacular outdoor concert by the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Gerald Steichen in a program featuring light classics, Americana, “water themed” music (reflecting the Arts Council collaboration with the Great Swamp Watershed Association) and vocal selections (opera and Broadway) showcasing singers from Opera NJ Additionally, the festival will feature children’s art activities, children’s book readings and sale (with several award-winning children’s authors), an Art Show and Sale,  a special sale of paintings of the Great Swamp by Girl Scout artists and other hands-on activities.    Ice cream, desserts, refreshments and beverages will be available for purchase and, in keeping with Giralda tradition, there will be generous prizes for the most inventive picnics and the fabulous 50/50 raffle which nets some lucky person a big cash prize. Bring your friends, families, classmates, neighbors or come by yourself to help welcome summer with the Arts Council in this fun and very affordable way.
