Winners of the 2019-20 Concerto Competition
The Princeton University Orchestra will present one of the most popular programs of its season: a spotlight on concerto repertoire, featuring the student winners of the 2019-20 concerto competition. Hearing student virtuosos being featured as soloists, performing with the support of their friends in the orchestra, is always a very moving event. The program also features a new work by graduate student composer Annika Socolofsky, as well as the debut of conducting student Reilly Bova. The enthusiasm and skill of these students will thrill and inspire.
The program is presented on March 6 & 7, 2020. Tickets: $15 general/$5 students.

About the Artist:
Now in its 122nd 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.
