About the Artist:

Now in its 120th year, the Princeton University Orchestra is a renowned, touring symphonic orchestra that plays a wide range of works by composers from the Classical period up through freshly composed works by Princeton composers. 

The Orchestra began with a group of professional musicians from the New York Symphony and Philharmonic Societies who performed a series of concerts at Alexander Hall in 1896, the first on February 13. In the ensuing century, the orchestra has come to be an almost exclusively student organization; some 90-100 undergraduate and graduate musicians representing a broad spectrum of academic departments come together for concerts in Richardson Auditorium in Alexander Hall.
