Mission Statement & Sponsors

The New Jersey State Youth Orchestra (NJSYO) is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization and a New Jersey registered charity. We are operated exclusively by volunteers for the purpose of providing musical education to our youth. With approximately 100 students grouped by age and ability into three orchestras and a chamber ensemble, the NJSYO offers young musicians a unique opportunity to grow and refine their musical talents in an orchestral environment.
