Music has the power to enrich and inspire music lovers of all ages—and who knows that better than you! On April 20, enjoy a thrilling concert led by the charming guest conductor Nicholas McGegan, then participate in #OrchestraYou, the NJSO’s pro-am orchestra experience.


After the concert, it’s your turn in the spotlight! Find your flute, tune up your trombone or dust off your double bass and join forces with other audience members and NJSO players right in the lobby of NJPAC, in our nationally-recognized Accent event.

Everyone who plays a standard orchestral instrument can participate in #OrchestraYou. This year, to celebrate the 2018-19 presentations of the Star Wars movies, #OrchestraYou players will have a blast performing “Main Title” from John Williams’ sensational scores, under the baton of the NJSO Youth Orchestras Interim Artistic Director José Luis Domínguez.

Advance registration for participants is required by April 13; spectators are invited to stay and applaud this talented group.
