The All-State Orchestra is made up of the top high school musicians in NJ. Auditions are for students who have participated in their corresponding region ensemble. String auditions are held every March for the following school year.
Winds/brass/percussion/piano/harp are placed based on their All-State Band auditions. Freshman, sophomores, and juniors who audition are eligible to play in the All-State Orchestra during the following school year. There are two performances in November – one at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City and one at NJPAC in Newark.
