Gustavo Dudamel, music director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, was back in Princeton this past week for his second round of panels, performances and activities as Artist in Residence with Princeton University Concerts, this time meeting with two groups of young local musicians to provide some feedback and inspiration. Dudamel, who got his own start in Venezuela's El Sistema program, has championed accessible music education, and this week A Tempo (Saturday at 7 pm), host Rachel Katz sits down with Dudamel to talk about his commitment to young musicians, and also chats with some of the young musicians who had the chance to perform for him, including Trenton Music Makers.
