On Wednesday, April 22, 2020, join NJPAC Teaching Artist Wincey Terry for a free reading of Nighttime Symphony written by Christopher Myers and illustrated by Kaa Illustration.

Nighttime Symphony
As a little boy gets ready for bed, the sounds of a wild storm echo around him, lulling him to sleep. From the crash of thunder to the pitter-patter of raindrops to the beat of passing cars, the music of the city creates a cozy bedtime soundtrack.

The first 25 families to RSVP will receive a FREE copy of the book!

Enjoy a performance by Wells Fargo Jazz for Teens after a reading Nighttime Symphony at select local Newark Public Libraries!

NJPAC Teaching Artist Wincey Terry will lead a free reading from 4–5PM and then the jazz ensemble will perform from 5–6 PM at specific locations listed below.
