NJSO postpones March concerts due to regional COVID-19 outbreak

With the health and safety of our patrons, musicians, staff and communities being of the highest priority, the NJSO is monitoring the COVID-19 (coronavirus) global health pandemic. I write to inform that, as a result of the coronavirus outbreak in New Jersey and the tri-state region, the NJSO is now at Level 3 of its three-tiered coronavirus threat plan.

As prescribed by this level, the NJSO will postpone its scheduled concerts from March 19 through March 29. Plans to reschedule these concerts, if possible, will be announced at a later date.

NJSO concerts will resume once we are confident that it is safe to hold public events. The NJSO is taking preventative measures with the health and safety of our constituents in mind, and we will follow guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and New Jersey Department of Health to make the most informed decision possible about when to resume our activities.

We truly care about you as a member of the NJSO family, and if you have tickets for these performances, you will have multiple options from which to choose. To exchange your tickets for another performance, put the value of your tickets on your account, or to donate your tickets, please fill out this request form. You can also contact NJSO Patron Services at or 1.800.ALLEGRO (255.3476).*

In accordance with our decisions for safety, upcoming NJSO education and community engagement activities and performances will be suspended until at least March 29. For questions, contact Education & Community Engagement team at or 973.735.1733.*
