For 22 years our intergenerational musical programs have brought together individuals of different ages to explore, study, and work toward a shared musical goal.  These activities foster cooperation and promote interaction among generations including children, youth, adults and seniors while maintaining a high level of excellence.  NJIO strengthens the community by providing opportunities for everyone, young and old, to play in a classical ensemble.  NJIO provides free concerts for the community so that everyone can afford to enjoy classical music. 

Imagine you are entering a darkened concert hall.  As the lights go up you notice something very different.  A young girl in pigtails sits down next to a grey-haired retired banker to play the second violin part in Von Suppe’s Light Calvary Overture.  A mother plays the viola while her 12-year-old son plays the timpani in a Beethoven Symphony.  Energetic and talented conductors are leading an intergenerational group of musicians who are playing because they love to share the joy of music with others.

 This is a New Jersey Intergenerational Orchestra concert.  With the assistance of some dedicated professionals, the NJIO members described above and a hundred others like them make music together.  NJIO concerts are always inspiring, thought provoking, educational and entertaining.  And each concert is free so that people of all ages and means can attend.
