Accessibility

The Youth Orchestra of Central Jersey is committed to making sure that all our concerts are accessible to all of our patrons, and that all of our rehearsals are accessible to all of our students.

BUILDING ACCESSIBILITY:
Our home facility, West Windsor Plainsboro High School North, features accessible parking, sidewalk ramps, entrances, doors, bathroom facilities, braille signage, and accessible seating in the theater. The building has elevators for students who need this access to rehearsals on the second floor. Concerts in our other venues, such as TCNJ’s Mayo Hall and Kendall Hall also feature various levels of accessibility.

PARKING:
At West Windsor Plainsboro High School North, patrons can easily be dropped off directly in front of the main entrance. Please notify us, preferably 2 weeks in advance, if you have any special parking needs, especially at TCNJ. We can obtain clearance from the campus police for patrons to be dropped off closer to certain venues.

SERVICES:
We will be offering a number of services that will be available upon request to accommodate the needs of our patrons, such as large print programs and advanced copies of program booklets via email. Please contact YOCJ by emailing us at contactyocj@gmail.com to find out what we can do to meet your needs. Two weeks notice is necessary to accommodate some requests.

ONLINE PROGRAMS:
A new service that we provide, as of May 2019, is online program PDF documents. Patrons with vision difficulties can peruse programs ahead of time on their home computers. Please keep in mind that we also provide large print program listings at the ticket table at the venues.
