Special Events

NJSO concerts are terrific on their own, but the events below go the extra mile and provide a special experience that goes beyond the traditional night out at the symphony. Join us for a gala in support of education programs, or attend one of the Winter Festival concerts and Accent events for a deeper connection to the music.
