About Us

The mission of the New Jersey Philharmonic Orchestra is to place the world’s finest music at the center of the cultural life of the East Coast community. The NJPO enriches the lives of adults and children through the transforming power of great music, performing concerts at the highest level of professional standards and providing educational programs for children and listeners of all ages that deepen their enjoyment and understanding of music and make it a part of their daily lives. The history and mission of the NJPO begin with its founder, Jinwook Park. In 2017, Mr. Park, a gifted musician and teacher, established the New Jersey Philharmonic Orchestra to provide high-quality performances of classical music for his community.
