New Jersey Symphony Orchestra

 

Named “a vital, artistically significant musical organization” by The Wall Street Journal, the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra embodies that vitality, bringing critically acclaimed performances to its home at NJPAC.

 

Under the bold leadership of Music Director Xian Zhang, the NJSO presents classical, pops and family programs, as well as outdoor summer concerts and special events. Hearing live music is an exhilarating, memorable experience, but you may have questions on your first visit. There’s no need to be anxious—just relax and enjoy the experience!
