Four world premieres in one night!

The NJSO gives the world premieres of works by the composers of the NJSO Edward T. Cone Composition Institute, a multi-faceted program that promotes new music and emerging composers. Four exciting composers offer dynamic new works; fresh from an intensive experience evolving their compositions through working sessions with the professional musicians of the NJSO, these composers realize the possibilities of a living art form. Each composer will briefly describe their piece in a concert that will illuminate their creative thought process. To learn more about the composers, click here.
