Music at Moorland Returns to Far Hills, NJ — Thursday Night, June 25, 2009

Posted by: Roxy - Print This Post Print This Post

Music at Moorland, a magical evening of open-air dining, classical music and spectacular fireworks on the lawn of Moorland Farms in Far Hills, New Jersey, is a much-anticipated event for kids and Roxiticus Desperate Housewives and Husbands alike. The 8th annual Music at Moorland to benefit Somerset Medical Center returns to the Roxiticus Valley on Thursday night, June 25th.

Gates open at 5:30 p.m, the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra concert begins at approximately 7:30 p.m., and the amazing Grucci fireworks begin at approximately 9:30 p.m.

This wonderful family event offers a wide array of entertainment opportunities for everyone—from corporate tent parties held on the hilltop overlooking spectacular Moorland Farms to casual picnics with friends and families on the lawn.

You can buy tickets online for as little as $25 per person in advance, or spend up to $300/seat for reserved Benefactor seating tickets.

Music at Moorland has been generously presented since its inception in 2002 by sanofi-aventis, whose commitment to the event, the community and Somerset Medical Center—the beneficiary of all of the proceeds of this event—is extraordinary. This year, the Grammy® Award-winning New Jersey Symphony Orchestra will once again be presenting the evening’s program. The music will start at approximately 7:30pm.

Also back due to tremendous popularity is Fireworks by Grucci, the Long Island-based company that has been presenting extraordinary fireworks displays throughout the world for generations. From the Olympic Games to presidential inaugurations, Grucci provides a ground-shaking performance that is second-to-none.

The painting you see at the left was created by New Vernon artist Janet Tribus, who has always found inspiration in the pastoral farmlands of New Jersey. Tribus’ oil painting showcases the beauty of Moorland Farms in Far Hills on a summer evening, its rolling hills illuminated by a spectacular fireworks display.

Rex and I took London and Maddie when they were really little… back in June 2004, just after we moved out here from New York City. They were a little too young to enjoy either the fireworks (”loud, Mooooommmy!”) or the music, but now that the girls are old enough to help us to lug all the lawn chairs and picnic stuff up the hill, we may give Music at Moorland another try…so join us for a wonderful evening under the stars!  This year, it looks like the weather will be nice on Thursday evening, and our friends from Hilltop Presbyterian Church in Mendham, NJ, have invited us to join them on the lawn at 5:30 for a bit of fellowship before the musical evening begins.  Hope to see you there, too!
