Breathe in sound and silence through guided meditation as you listen to music more viscerally than ever before, meditating to the playing of violinist Alexi Kenney, guided by Matthew Weiner, Associate Dean in the Princeton University Office of Religious Life. This is a FREE, unticketed opportunity to indulge in attentive, focused, and mindful listening.
No prior experience with meditation necessary. If desired, attendees may bring floor seating (mat/cushion/etc); seating will be on stage, with chairs provided. Capacity is limited, and we advise participants to arrive early. Doors to the hall will open and meditation instruction will begin at 12:00PM. Doors will close once capacity is reached. The event will conclude by 1:30PM. For more information about the Live Music Meditation experience, check out this New York Times feature and Performance Today segment.
About the Musician:
The recipient of a 2016 Avery Fisher Career Grant and a 2020 Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award, Alexi Kenney is building a career that defies categorization, following his interests, intuition, and heart. He is equally at home creating experimental programs and commissioning new works, soloing with major orchestras in the USA and abroad, and collaborating with some of the most celebrated musicians of our time.
Alexi Kenney will perform in the evening as part of Princeton University Concerts’ inaugural “Healing with Music” series event, exploring music’s role in brain injury recovery. He will also return to make his solo recital debut on the Concert Classics series in February in a program centered around the music of J.S. Bach.
