The Princeton Symphony Orchestra (PSO) promises to deliver an all-new, outdoor Princeton Festival June 10-25, with a cohesive campus plan, community cooperation, and exciting artists. A cadre of opera singers are poised to inhabit the comic characters of Derrick Wang’s Scalia/Ginsburg and W.A. Mozart’s The Impresario, as well as Benjamin Britten’s full-length opera Albert Herring. Concerts featuring top performers such as Storm Large, the Signum Quartet, and Baroque ensemble The Sebastians ensure multiple evenings of first-rate, live music covering a variety of genres of yesterday and today.
After months of behind-the-scenes planning following the PSO’s merger with the Princeton Festival this past summer, Edward T. Cone Music Director Rossen Milanov provides a glimpse of the combined organization’s visionary plans for the Festival.
“Building on the Princeton Festival’s unique 17-year history, we are embarking on a new vision of a summer festival filled with wonderful performances, fully staged operas, popular entertainment, jazz and baroque music to events designed to be enjoyed by the whole family,” said Milanov. “I have always dreamed of PSO having a summer presence and look forward to connecting in a new and exciting way with our diverse community.”
More information and a schedule of events will coincide with tickets going on sale.
