A Tempo this Saturday (7/29 at 7 pm) talks with the new Music Director of Camden's Symphony in C.

Symphony in C, a professional training orchestra in Camden, NJ, recently appointed Israeli-born Noam Aviel as its new Music Director. Aviel, a former assistant and associate conductor with the San Antonio Symphony, has a particular interest in introducing the musicians and audiences to works by lesser-known composers, and the symphony's next season features a mix of works by well-known composers including Tchaikovsky and Mendelssohn, as well as pieces by Florence Price and Henriette Renié. She is also excited about getting to know the community in and around Camden, which has been home to the symphony, formerly the Haddonfield Symphony, since 2006.

A Tempo host Rachel Katz this week chats with Aviel, together with symphony President Pamela Brant, about Aviel's plans and where they see the orchestra going in the next few years, both musically and in its efforts to strengthen ties with its community.

Rachel Katz is the host of A Tempo which airs Saturdays at 7 pm.
