The 2022-2023 season of Princeton University Concerts (PUC) will feature 23 events spanning the academic year from September through May.

The new season “is move exuberant and, in scope, more reflective than ever of a PUC where everyone can find a personal connection to music,” said Marna Seltzer, director. Highlights include events with mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato and pianist Mitsuko Uchinda; informal Performances Up Close with audience members seated on stage, family concerts, and a new “Healing with Music” conversation and performance series, hosted by Clemency Burton-Hill, that sheds light on music’s role in the lives of musicians facing significant illness and personal upheaval.

More than half of the artists will be making PUC debuts, including violinist Janine Jansen, pianist Vikingur Olafsson, jazz vocalist Cecile McLorin Salvant, and trumpeter Tine Thing Helseth. Returning favorites include the Brentano String Quartet, Steven Mackey, violinist Alexi Kenney, and tenor Lawrence Brownlee.

PUC is continuing its partnership with the Princeton Garden Theatre. Documentaries to be featured this season are The Ballad of Fred Hersch and Falling for Stradivari. The Richardson Chamber Players’ series will resume, with two Sunday afternoon events featuring mixed chamber music programs performed by University performance faculty and students. PUC will also continue to facilitate the Neighborhood Music Project, an educational initiative connecting students in neighboring communities with the guest musicians through classroom visits and field trips to concerts.
