A Tempo: Dudamel Wraps up Princeton Residency with Young Musicians

May 2, 2019

Conducting superstar Gustavo Dudamel wound up his residency with Princeton University Concerts last week, participating in discussions about art and society, conducting the Princeton University Orchestra and Glee Club in two concerts, and stopping in to answer questions by young musicians attending a Seminario that brought together youth music programs from New Jersey and the region inspired by the El Sistema movement. A Tempo this Saturday (5/5 at 7 pm) speaks with Princeton University Concerts Director Marna Seltzer, Trenton Music Makers Executive Director Carol Burden, and several of the students who took part in the concerts and other programs.

Students from El Sistema-inspired programs from around the region gathered in Princeton to learn and perform at a Seminario, which also included a visit by conductor Gustavo Dudamel.
