Welcome to our orchestra page.
NJIO has three tiered orchestras to fit the needs of all of our players and to promote growth and learning. String players are welcome to choose which group (and how many groups) they participate in. Winds and brass are welcome to join Intermezzo and/or symphony. (Please email email@example.com to learn about open Symphony wind chairs.)

Musicians in Prelude play at a beginning level, have a basic understanding of notes and rhythms and are ready to begin playing in an ensemble. No previous ensemble experience is required. The repertoire includes arrangements of short classical pieces and fiddle tunes. Prelude is also great for people who are returning back to playing after a long break. This group is open to strings and also C wind instruments (flute, oboe, bassoon).
