Event Info

As Music Director of the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela, Gustavo Dudamel -- Princeton University Concerts' 2018-19 Artist-in-Residence -- will bring together a string quartet made of the principals in the orchestra (each now living outside of his home country), to play a program that explores music’s ability to transcend geographical and political borders and unite us in our shared experiences. A highlight of the program will be a new work by Princeton University faculty composer Donnacha Dennehy. A panel discussion will follow the concert, moderated by Gustavo Dudamel.
