In Memoriam

The NJSO mourns the loss of one of its own.

Paul Harris will be missed for his quiet, yet formidable, decades-long leadership of the Bass section. He was deeply committed to the power and impact of the NJSO’s music in the lives of people of all ages and backgrounds. His colleagues within the orchestra will remember his gentle strength, his ever-present ear plugs, and his frequent quips from “The Godfather.”
