Thank you for joining the NJSO for our Spring into Music Virtual Gala & Online Auction. Our supporters’ generosity enabled us to raise significant support for our artistic, education and community engagement programs. 

With the help of our NJSO family and friends, Spring into Music was filled with celebratory online musical performances, speeches and an extensive silent auction. It was our honor to carry on this annual tradition and we could not have done it without the strong support of our sponsors and donors! We will continue our commitment to bring you live music and virtual events to connect with our New Jersey communities.
