On Sunday February 24, 2013, eight students from Watchung Hills performed at Carnegie Hall Stage as members of the New Jersey Youth Symphony (NJYS). The Symphony performed four movements from Gustav Holst’s “The Planets”. Those movements include: Mars, Saturn, Uranus and Jupiter. The eight students from Watchung Hills are…

Since the beginning of the school year these eight individuals come to NJYS, located in New Providence, NJ every Tuesday night, for a three hour rehearsal with conductor Jeffery Grogan. The New Jersey Youth Symphony is comprised on many of New Jersey’s most talented musicians who audition for the honor of performing with this prestigious group. The NJYS organization is comprised of ten different performing groups for musicians in third through twelfth grades.


The appearance by NJYS was part of the Carnegie Hall Instrumental Music Festival. The concert included two other groups, the InnerSchools Orchestras of New York (New York’s All City Orchestra)  and the Shelby High School Orchestra from North Carolina.
