Music Matters

Every day we fulfill our mission to enrich lives through a passion for musical excellence and a commitment to New Jersey, its people and its communities. Our focus has been on you—and making sure we continue to provide relevant and compelling musical experiences. NJSO concerts feature our world-class musicians and top-tier guest artists at six venues throughout the state, while our numerous education and community engagement activities reach as many as 45,000 New Jerseyans each season. The generosity of individuals, corporations and foundations makes everything we do possible and enables more than 125,000 New Jerseyans to experience the NJSO and live music each year. No matter how the NJSO has become a part of your life, your support shows that music matters to you and to the vitality of your community.
