The New Jersey Intergenerational Orchestra (NJIO) includes musicians of all ages and skill levels. Its mission is to, “connect people of all ages from diverse communities through music education and orchestral and chamber music performances,” founded in 1994. NJIO now offers three major concerts per season, smaller outreach performances, three different levels of musical participation, and public performance opportunities for all. It has had long experience with intergenerational connectedness through music and is widely recognized in New Jersey and beyond as an exemplary enterprise, not only for its intergenerational commitment but also for its musical accomplishments.
