Members of the NJ Philharmonic Glee Club perform a holiday concert on Dec. 14 at Mancini Hall at the Toms River branch of the Ocean County Library.

TOMS RIVER Sounds of the holidays and other musical favorites were heard on the evening of Dec. 14 at the Toms River branch of the Ocean County Library where the North Jersey Philharmonic Glee Club performed. 

The North Jersey Philharmonic Glee Club was formed in 1939 by Dolores Collins Benjamin and is one of the oldest continuously singing all male groups in the Mid-Atlantic region.

The club has entertained audiences for decades from different cultures, social classes and neighborhoods with their dedication to using the value of song to foster a spirit of community.

 Despite the rainy weather the free concert drew a good sized crowd to the library’s Mancini Hall. Songs ranging from gospel hymns to spirituals to non-holiday favorites were performed.

 The program was made possible in part by the generous sponsorship of an OceanFirst Foundation Arts and Cultural Grant and with funding from the Ocean County Library Foundation and the Ocean County Library.
