The Princeton Symphony Orchestra (PSO) continues its long-standing partnership with WWFM, The Classical Network (89.1FM), with a special PSO Festival of Music consisting of curated performances from the PSO archives, and broadcast over three successive Fridays, November 6, 13, and 20 at 8 p.m.

The showcase spans orchestral music from the classical and romantic to modern and contemporary periods. Listeners will gain insights into the music and get to know the PSO’s Edward T. Cone Music Director Rossen Milanov as he introduces each week’s program with radio host David Osenberg. All performances were recorded at Richardson Auditorium on the campus of Princeton University and feature the Princeton Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Milanov.

“I am incredibly excited to bring the music of the Princeton Symphony Orchestra to WWFM’s listening audience,” said Milanov. “I hope that these broadcasts will help us relive again the excitement of some of the Orchestra’s most memorable performances from recent seasons.”

“As has everything in our lives during the pandemic, special relationships take on greater meaning and importance,” said Osenberg. “The Classical Network’s long partnership with the Princeton Symphony Orchestra will be front and center
during these Friday evening concert broadcasts, with performances chosen specifically by Maestro Milanov. Listeners and supporters are invited to celebrate the artistry of this great orchestra and our musical community.”

On Friday, November 6, works by Ibert, Schulhoff, and Shostakovich are on the program. The November 13 performance features Tchaikovsky and Beethoven, while the November 20 program has works by Tian, Debussy, and Hindemith. All programs are held from 8-10 p.m.
