Princeton Festival, Symphony Orchestra Look to Broader Repertoire in Upcoming Seasons
A Tempo this Saturday (5/20) checks in the Princeton Symphony Orchestra about plans for next month's Princeton Festival and its 2023-2024 season.
The Princeton Festival kicks off its 2023 season next month, its second both under the auspices of the Princeton Symphony Orchestra and the performance tent on the grounds of Princeton's Morven Museum and Garden that it introduced last year for its first fully in-person season following the pandemic. This year's line-up includes a production of Rossini's The Barber of Seville, performances by chamber ensembles Time for Three and the Attacca Quartet, a Juneteenth recital by baritone Will Liverman featuring works by African-American composers, the oratorio I Am Harvey Milk, and an audience-participation, improvisational musical theater evening. The PSO is also expanding its repertoire in the upcoming 2023-2024 season with a variety of new commissions and less-frequently performed works. A Tempo host Rachel Katz chats with PSO Executive Director Marc Uys and Rossen Milanov, the Edward T. Cone Music Director, about this year's Festival and the PSO's 2023-2024 season.
