The New Jersey Symphony Orchestra traces its roots back to the mid 1800s, when the first classical music ensembles were forming in the Newark area. Today, NJSO is a thriving cultural institution with numerous concerts throughout its season, as well as radio broadcasts and an active educational outreach program. The orchestra is headed by music director Jacques Lacombe and conductor laureate Neeme Järvi. The NJSO’s programming is consistently exciting and innovative, in no small part due to its music director’s love of the adventurous in music. The symphony’s various concerts take place at seven different venues throughout Northern New Jersey: Richardson Auditorium (Princeton), Community Theatre (Morristown), bergenPAC (Englewood), Count Basie Theatre (Red Bank), Patriots Theater at the War Memorial (Trenton), State Theatre (New Brunswick), and New Jersey Performing Arts Center (Newark). Several levels of subscriptions are available.
