Melding Music with Service

The Music Department is committed to leveraging its wealth of musical resources for the benefit of local youth. Through programs like the Trenton Youth Orchestra and Trenton Youth Singers, Princeton University students teach and perform with young musicians from the neighboring city of Trenton. During the 2018/19 school year, PUC Artist-in Residence Maestro Dudamel further invigorated the on-campus movement for music accessibility by engaging with the Trenton community and generously supporting Princeton University Concerts’ new outreach program. By leading sectionals, teaching private lessons, or participating in community performances, Princeton students derive new value from their musical talent, which is no longer simply a pathway to personal growth but also an instrument of social change.
