Bring the musical magic of the NJSO to your community!

The NJSO’s REACH (Resources for Education And Community Harmony) chamber music program offers performances in every county in the state. With original programs designed and performed by NJSO musicians, the Orchestra provided in the 2015-16 season nearly 200 events for more than 34,000 New Jerseyans of all ages. These programs provide unique opportunities to get up close and personal with NJSO musicians and make music-filled memories that last a lifetime.

"This [NJSO chamber music ] program is so valuable because it provides students with a chance to experience music in a live format. It’s different from what they usually listen to, thus broadening their horizons.”
—Teacher, McKinley School, Newark, NJ

“We learned a lot about the composers, the music, etc. The performers were excellent and great communicators both verbally and musically. You should be applauded for bringing such enjoyable events to forums like our library where everyone can have access to them. Thank you so much!”
—Patron, Leonia, NJ 

“[The musician’s] calm and reassuring tone is helpful to making the kids feel comfortable trying something new. The air flow exercises are great and the whole trumpet section sounds better!” – Band Director, New Brunswick Middle School, New Brunswick, NJ

“This performance was valuable because I am able to see such world class performance up close and personal in my home town.” – Patron, Tenafly, NJ
