For three Thursdays in September (12th, 19th and 26th), the New Jersey Intergenerational Orchestra (NJIO) will be holding Open House rehearsals for musicians interested in performing great classical music.  Rehearsals will be held in the New Jersey Youth Symphony Building in New Providence.  During these open houses, interested participants may play with the orchestra or simply observe the rehearsal.  NJIO offers three different ensembles that accommodate musicians of all musical skill levels.

NJIO has a new artistic Director and Conductor at the helm, Maestro Warren Cohen. Cohen is the Music Director and Conductor of Musica Nova, a highly acclaimed professional orchestra in Scottsdale, Arizona and the Concert Artist in Conducting at Kean University. Additionally, he is a renowned composer, the winner of 9 ASCAP awards in composition.  This 20th anniversary season of NJIO begins with a family concert in November, which will include the local premiere of “Just So Stories”, a musical tale of the Rudyard Kipling story.

Recently, NJIO was brought into the national spotlight when they were invited to perform at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, DC.  Moreover, the orchestra was named a finalist for the Eisner Prize for Intergenerational Excellence. The orchestra members have ranged in age from 5 to over 85 and play side-by-side with well-known professionals that provide coaching and mentoring. Auditions are not needed to participate, just a love of music and a desire to play in a great  orchestra or to share your musical expertise with those striving for excellence. The orchestra exudes a warm spirit of intergenerational cooperation which is evident at the performances that are provided free to the community three times during the season.

To inquire or participate in any of the Open Houses, please email info@njio.org or call Mary Beth at (908) 603-7691, so that we can have your music waiting for you. NJIO is committed to ensuring that all our rehearsals and events are accessible to everyone. Our address is 570 Central Avenue in New Providence. Come see what makes the award winning NJIO such a truly exceptional place.
