NJSO Accent events also include Classical Conversations one hour before the April 5 and 6 performances. The NJSO String Ensemble-part of the NJSO Youth Orchestras family of student ensembles-gives a Prelude Performance on April 7 at 2:15 pm. More information on NJSO Accent events is available at njsymphony.org/accents.
