The Princeton Symphony Orchestra (PSO) has planned a roster of concerts and guest artists for its 2023-24 season. Included are 2022 Avery Fisher Career Grant winner, saxophonist Steven Banks; 2022 Grammy Award winners, violinist Jennifer Koh and Metropolitan Opera star/Princeton University graduate Anthony Roth Costanzo; pianist Sara Davis Buechner; Westminster Symphonic Choir led by James Jordan, and 2023 Grammy Award-winning trio Time For Three.
Music Director Rossen Milanov has programmed works by seven living composers including Pulitzer Prize and Grammy Award winners Caroline Shaw, Kevin Puts, and John Luther Adams. Shaw was a graduate student at Princeton University and occasional second violinist with the PSO. Others with local ties are Princeton native composer Sarah Kirkland Snider and Princeton University doctoral candidate in music composition Nina Shekhar. The PSO will also play works by Missy Mazzoli and Gregory Spears, and modern classics by Henri Tomasi, William Dawson, and Marin Goleminov.
Classical works include symphonies by Sibelius, Tchaikovsky, and Schumann; and pieces by Mendelssohn, Mozart, Handel, and Prokofiev. All performances take place on select Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 4 p.m. at Richardson Auditorium. Milanov conducts all but one concert. PSO’s Kenneth Bean, in his third season as assistant conductor, leads performances in October.
