As the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra adapts to social distancing restrictions, it has unveiled a revised season that maintains its mission to feature its musicians around the state performing a diverse repetoire, including some new and contemporary works reflecting current-day discussions of race and social justice. The revamped season will feature concerts recorded at NJPAC, with a reduced-sized and socially distanced orchestra, that will be streamed, and a series of solo and small chamber ensemble performances filmed at various locations around the state, including Newark's One Theater Square and Hoboken's Pier C. A Tempo this Saturday (10/24 at 7 pm) looks at the season plans, which include performances featuring works by Dvorak, Mozart  and Beethoven, as well as music by William Grant Still, Michael Abels and a new work by Daniel Bernard Roumain.
