New Jersey Intergenerational Orchestra is a unique organization in which musicians of all ages and skill levels experience the joy of making music together. Professional musicians work alongside members as mentors and the result is artistic excellence with a strong educational component in a non-competitive, musically challenging atmosphere.

NJIO has three orchestras to accommodate a range of skill levels and members choose which to join:

  • Prelude String Ensemble, a small group for beginning string players
  • Intermezzo, A full symphonic orchestra for advanced beginner and intermediate players
  • Symphony, a full symphonic orchestra for intermediate and advanced players who want to participate at a high level. No auditions needed!

Each orchestra rehearses weekly and performs in four annual concerts in public venues in NJ.
