PU Sinfonia Features Student Talent, May 10

The Princeton University Sinfonia performs a program that utilizes the talent of Princeton University’s students on Wednesday, May 10 in Richardson Auditorium in Alexander Hall at 7:30 p.m. 

Sinfonia’s conductor, Ruth Ochs, opens the concert with a new work composed by Shruthi Rajasekar ’18, “Polite Society,” that unites Indian classical music with western orchestral sonorities. Ms.Rajasekar is an undergraduate student in the department of music. Three members of Sinfonia will take the stage to perform as soloists. Noah Beattie-Moss, ’19 will perform Dvorak’s Romance for Violin and Orchestra, Monica Wei, ’17 will perform Cécile Chaminade’s Concertino for Flute and Orchestra, and Audrey Shi, ’20 will perform Claude Debussy’s Première rhapsodie for clarinet and orchestra.

The concert will conclude with Jean Sibelius’s stirring Symphony No. 2 in D Major, a work that brings any audience to its feet with its triumphant finale.

Tickets for this concert are $10 general admission, $5 students and seniors. Call university ticketing at (609) 258-9220 or visit
