The New Jersey State Youth Orchestra (NJSYO) is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization and a New Jersey registered charity. We are operated by volunteers for the purpose of providing musical education to our youth. Currently, there are approximately 175 students grouped into three orchestras by age and ability. NJSYO also offers a chamber music group to provide young musicians the opportunity to perform in smaller groups, summer music camps, and a “Learn to Play” program for beginners on select instruments.
