What is NJIO?
New Jersey Intergenerational Orchestra (NJIO) bridges the generations through music, bringing artistic excellence to New Jersey communities. NJIO provides opportunities for musicians of all ages and abilities to study and perform classical music by rehearsing, learning and performing side-by-side with professional musicians and experienced players. Its members include families, friends and individuals from over 40 communities in northern and central New Jersey whose ages have ranged from 5-85.
NJIO is able to achieve high artistic goals while simultaneously welcoming people of all ages and skill levels, thus allowing its members to fully experience the joy of making music together.
NJIO shares its love of classical music with audiences through free community concerts and brings the joy of music to audiences inside senior and health care facilities. NJIO has performed at the United Nations, the Kennedy Center and at Lincoln Center and with famous guest soloists. NJIO has been recognized by several organizations, including the prestigious Eisner Foundation when they were selected a national finalist for the Eisner Prize for Intergenerational Excellence.
A unique organization, NJIO has been educating, entertaining, inspiring and sharing the joy of music with members and audiences for over 20 years.
