The New York Times: “The New Jersey Symphony Orchestra Returns, With Gusto”
“It was a long-awaited and rewarding return for an essential orchestra.” “Music emerging from the fog. How the N.J. Symphony Orchestra sizzled in its return.”
“For much of its history, New Jersey has not had the same name recognition as New York, Boston and Chicago’s symphony orchestras, but the work the band has been doing for almost a century has been significant. And in 2021, the NJSO may be the orchestra the nation needs.”

News 12: “New Jersey Symphony Orchestra welcomes back live audiences for 1st time since pandemic”
Xian Zhang tells News 12: “‘Everybody had a sense of how precious this is, and how grateful we should be to be able to do this together.’”
