Bay-Atlantic Symphony Nominated for "People's Choice Award"

For the seventh consecutive year, the Bay-Atlantic Symphony has been nominated for the Jersey Arts People’s Choice Award for "Favorite Symphony Orchestra" in the "Symphony/Classical" category
“We are very proud and honored to be nominated consistently for this award,” said Bay-Atlantic Symphony Music Director Jed Gaylin. “The nomination is testimony to the esteem with which we are recognized among our peers in the arts community. We hope, with the help of all of our supporters who take a few minutes of time to do the simple, on-line voting, to go all the way this year.”
Contenders for the awards were nominated by their peers through the Jersey Arts Marketers network, which is made up of hundreds of nonprofit arts groups across the state. The program is run by Discover Jersey Arts to honor the work of New Jersey’s diverse arts organizations.
“The nominees should be very proud of the work they’re doing to establish New Jersey as a destination for arts and culture,” said Jim Atkinson, ArtPride New Jersey Foundation’s Director of Programs and Services.
The mission of the Bay-Atlantic Symphony is to share and develop a love for transcendent, live, concert music in southern New Jersey communities through performance and education. Since its founding as the Bridgeton Symphony in 1983, they have been recognized for its world-class performers, diverse programs and community services.
