Our concert season will kick off in November in Plainfield with folk and pastoral works, including Brahms’ Hungarian Dances and Beethoven’s “Pastorale” Symphony No. 6, as well as NJIO’s Young Artist Concerto Competition winner, Daniel Seog, performing the beautiful Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto in D Major.


December brings the popular annual Family Holiday Concert and Instrument Petting Zoo, as well as a performance by second place Concerto Competition winner Eilene Lee.


NJIO’s winter concert, in February at Summit Middle School, will feature the  NJIO Festival Chorus, accompanying NJIO in a performance of Coleridge-Taylor’s extraordinary Hiawatha’s Wedding Feast.  Also on the program is Smetana’s Moldau, an important expression of Bohemian identity.


The final concert of the season in May, also performed in Summit, will include the grand 19th-century works Saint-Saens’ Symphony No. 1 and Von Suppe’s Overture to “Pique Dame,” an operetta loosely based on Pushkin’s short story “Queen of Spades.”


You won’t want to miss this exciting season!  Invite your friends to our concerts, or invite them to come to our open house rehearsals to play with us!
