Watch as amateur musicians join members of the NJSO in the NJSO’s first ever virtual #OrchestraYou video!  

Music has the power to bring us all together. During these uncertain times, we can be certain of the unifying power of music. The NJSO is pleased to present virtual #OrchestraYou featuring amateur musicians from all over the country joining forces with NJSO musicians in a special edition of this classic NJSO Accent event. 

An in-person #OrchestraYou event was canceled this spring due to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, but that didn’t stop us from making music together. We are pleased to present a very special virtual #OrchestraYou, celebrating Beethoven’s 250th birthday with a performance of the Scherzo from the composer’s Third Symphony.
