Attention music educators, music students and their families: On Saturday, March 15, at NJPAC—the NJSO is celebrating you!
Music has the power to enrich and inspire music lovers of all ages—and who knows better than you! Come be celebrated on Music Education Night. Come early to enjoy a concert prelude in the lobby, featuring the young talent within our community. A special “Inspiration Wall” will exhibit tales written by our very own musicians of how a music teacher inspired them. Write your own inspirational story to add to the wall!
Then enjoy a magnificent NJSO concert featuring renowned violinist Hilary Hahn performing Brahms’ Violin Concerto and a stirring performance of Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite. Finally, be a part of the very first #OrchestraYou, the NJSO's pro-am orchestra.
WHAT IS #ORCHESTRAYOU?
After the concert, it’s your turn in the spotlight! Find your flute, tune up your trombone or dust off your double bass and join forces with others in the music education community for the first ever #OrchestraYou. In an unforgettable session, play with players from the NJSO right in the lobby of NJPAC.
#OrchestraYou is students, music teachers and administrators, parents, subscribers, music lovers and NJSO musicians, all coming together to make music! Education & Community Engagement Conductor Jeff Grogan will lead #OrchestraYou in “Les Toreadors” from Bizet’s Carmen Suite #1—a little rehearsal, a little performance and a whole lot of fun.

Grammy-winning violinist Hilary Hahn, one of the world’s most sought-after artists, plays Brahms’ formidable concerto with winning panache. The tale of the magical Firebird spurred some of Stravinsky’s most enchanting and picturesque music. Esa-Pekka Salonen casts a spell with the kaleidoscopic orchestral colors of Giro.
Watch a YouTube video of Hilary Hahn describing her upcoming album, “In 27 Pieces: the Hilary Hahn Encores.”
