2023 Princeton University Summer Chamber Concerts
As Richardson Auditorium will be closed for repairs for most of the summer 2023 concert season (it will be the site for one concert), Nassau Presbyterian Church at 61 Nassau Street will host the Princeton University Summer Chamber Concerts season instead. As usual, these world-class concerts are free to attend.
Here is a preview of the season:
Friday, June 23 at 7:30 p.m.
The Horszowski Piano Trio in Richardson Auditorium performs music by Bernstein, Schubert, and a commissioned piece to celebrate their 10th anniversary.
Thursday, July 6 at 7 p.m.
Newman & Oltman Guitar Duo at Nassau Presbyterian Church performs music by De Falla, Albeniz, Brouwer, and others.
Wednesday, July 19 at 7:30 p.m.
The Poulenc Trio at Nassau Presbyterian Church performs music for piano, oboe, and bassoon by Françaix, Fauré, Cuong, and Poulenc.
Friday, July 28 at 7:30 p.m.
The Dali String Quartet at Nassau Presbyterian Church performs music by Schubert, Piazzolla, and Tchaikovsky.
Summer Chamber Concerts was founded by music journalist, pianist, and cellist Barbara Sand. In the early years, Sand readied the outdoor performance space by pruning tree branches. To this day audience members recall sitting on the Graduate College lawn with blankets and picnic baskets for the concerts.
Renovations at the Graduate College — and the inconvenience of insects, traffic noise, and the inevitable humidity — prompted a change of venue in 1991 to Richardson Auditorium in Alexander Hall.
Tickets are free. For Richardson Auditorium, tickets are available one week prior to the concert at tickets.princeton.edu. No tickets are needed for concerts at Nassau Presbyterian Church. Learn more at www.princetonsummerchamberconcerts.org.
