The Orchestra is comprised of professional musicians from throughout New Jersey and the Tri-State area. Each comes together under the baton of the Garden State Philharmonic Conductor to create magic. Though the size of the ensemble may vary from performance to performance based on repertoire, the integrity and artistic quality never wavers.

The Professional Orchestra performs four subscription series concerts as well as many contracted and special concerts throughout the year. The home of the Garden State Philharmonic is the Jay & Linda Grunin Center for the Arts on the campus of Ocean County College.
