Welcoming Music Director XIAN ZHANG

Internationally renowned conductor Xian Zhang is the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra’s 14th Music Director! Praised by critics and popular with audiences and musicians alike, Zhang brings a charismatic warmth and dynamic energy to the Garden State.

“Zhang was at once commanding and exuberant, occasionally jumping or bending sharply at the waist to spur on the orchestra but often remaining fairly still—a riveting, dancer-like presence completely in the service of music, not showmanship.” —The Star-Ledger
