NJSO Winter Festival

America has always been a place of monumental inspiration, feeding the ideals of people from all over the world. This season’s Winter Festival celebrates artists who found creative inventiveness within this great nation.

Don’t miss the NJSO Accent events surrounding the festival, including wine tastings, post-concert talkbacks, panel discussions, a poetry reading, a prelude performance and an artist who will paint as a string quartet performs. More details on each event can be found on the event pages.

In addition to the Accent events and concerts, there are intimate chamber music performances in Rumson and Summit, featuring works by Dvořák, Bartók and Tan Dun performed by the NJSO Chamber Players.

Music Director Xian Zhang gives a sneak peek at what makes this year’s Festival so special.

2018 Winter Festival: America, Inspiring
Ravel & Rachmaninoff

The searing energy of jazz, the speed and power of a fighter plane—these emblems of American ingenuity captured the imagination of Ravel and Martinů. Acclaimed pianist Terrence Wilson, a Montclair resident, dazzles in Ravel’s colorful concerto.
