Opening Weekend—WOW!

Press Praise Opening Concerts

“This is the future of classical music—and it does have a future—bringing us beauty, challenge, hope, and community, even in times of gravest despair, as we face the perils of our time and years to come. It is a face of diversity: color, gender, LGBTQ+, recreating some of humanity’s greatest music and crafting new music for the audiences of tomorrow. The New Jersey Symphony got it right, and their timing couldn’t be better.”
