Don’t Miss This Amazing Performance at the Strand, October 28!

Posted on September 25, 2018 By

One Lakewood High School graduate who has become world-renowned is William Goldstein a composer and pianist. To help raise money for the Lakewood Historical Museum, Goldstein is coming from Hollywood to the Strand Theater on Sunday, October 28 at 2:00 p.m. to perform for an audience of all ages.

What a fabulous opportunity for everyone, including students, parents, and budding and professional musicians to experience the musical talent and on-the-spot creativity of someone who is particularly interested in students!

One exceptional gift Goldstein is known for is “Instant Composition.” As someone reads a poem or a passage from a book, he instantly creates a musical composition!

Goldstein, a recording artist for Motown and CBS Masterworks, has scored more than 50 movie and television projects, including Fame, The Miracle Worker, Twilight Zone, and Shocker.

He is a pioneer in the use of computers and electronic music instruments, and runs music camps.

Student tickets with an I.D. are only $26. Tickets cost $50. All admissions include a Meet and Greet after Goldstein’s performance.  Purchase tickets at or visit the Strand box office at 2:00 p.m. on Fridays.  Also, contact Robin Taylor-Wellet at 732-330-5384 for tickets or more information.

About the Lakewood Historical Museum: The Lakewood Historical Museum, Pine Park, Lakewood, N.J., is housed in Kuser Hall, a two-story, 16,000 square-foot former classroom building. It is the last remaining building of five that made up the Newman School, an exclusive preparatory boarding school for boys, which closed in 1942 as young men left for the war. The building, which the township acquired in 1964 through Green Acres Funding, was the math and science center of the school. Through the volunteer efforts of members in the Historical Society and the Heritage Commission, the first floor of Kuser Hall has been transformed into a showcase, featuring six completed galleries of Lakewood memorabilia and artifacts. Funds are needed to restore the second floor of Kuser Hall, and to acquire and build an elevator.
