This weekend! Denk Plays “Emperor”

Watch an Opening Weekend preview with Music Director Xian Zhang.

We’re back! Come see us this weekend.

The New Jersey Symphony Orchestra’s 2017–18 season kick’s off with a tremendous concert—the world-class pianist Jeremy Denk performing Beethoven’s “Emperor” Concerto, led by Music Director Xian Zhang. It’s Beethoven’s most beloved piano concerto, and in the hands of Xian, Denk and the NJSO, it will leave you with a smile and a feeling of relaxation, in only the way a truly great live classical music concert can accomplish.

In addition, the Orchestra showcases its power with Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique, another audience favorite and a symphony that has an interesting history. The first piece on the program, Beethoven’s Overture to The Creatures of Prometheus, comes from Beethoven’s only ballet. Listen to music clips.

Only two performances! Great seats are available.
Sat, Oct 7 at 7:30 pm | NJPAC in Newark
Sun, Oct 8 at 3 pm | Mayo Performing Arts Center in Morristown
