Meet the Orchestra!

Education becomes entertainment in the hands of the PSO musicians who present teaching performances in the classroom.  A series of four lively, interactive presentations introduces students to the instrument families: strings, woodwinds, brass, and percussion.



School Day Concerts
Wednesday, May 3, 2017

Each spring as a capstone to the year, the students see and hear all of those instrument families together, at an exciting, live orchestra concert.  On May 10, nearly 2,500 students will flock to Richardson Auditorium with their teachers to hear the Princeton Symphony Orchestra and Music Director Rossen Milanov perform The Story of Babar!
