Orchestral Music for All

Founded in 1972 by the New Jersey State Orchestra and established as an independent nonprofit in 1977, the New Jersey State Youth Orchestra (NJSYO) serves the region and the state by providing young people with outstanding music education and community performance opportunities in preparatory, intermediate and advanced orchestras and advanced ensembles under the direction of professional musicians and music educators. During the course of its history, the NJSYO has contributed to the musical education and careers of thousands of young people.
