Regional Orchestra of the Week: New Jersey Symphony

Related: New Jersey Symphony

Commissions from major composers have continued under Lacombe, including a new work by Steven Mackey to be presented in 2013. Through the New Jersey Roots Project-which Lacombe conceived as a new affirmation of the organization's commitment to artistic excellence in its own communities- the Orchestra has also explored overlooked repertoire and commissioned new works from New Jersey composers and composers whose artistic identity was influenced by the Garden State.

Since its inception in 1922, the NJSO has attracted some of the greatest international talent in the classical music world as guest soloists, including Pablo Casals, Joseph Szigeti and Percy Grainger among its earliest guests. The NJSO continues to present top-notch performers, including Yo-Yo Ma, Joshua Bell, Yefim Bronfman, André Watts and Marc-André Hamelin. The Orchestra has also been active in seeking out new and undiscovered talent. Pianists Lang Lang and Yuja Wang, both enjoying acclaimed international careers now, each performed with the NJSO when they were still students at the Curtis Institute.

Upcoming concert events include PETER AND THE WOLF, Mendelssohn's 'ITALIAN', Mozart's REQUIEM, DON JUAN, MUSIC OF THE AMERICAS, Verdi's REQUIEM, and a special concert event with Broadway favorite Patti LuPone in June. To check out the extensive event calendar, click here.
