Lecture Series

PSO lectures offer opportunities to deepen the concert-going experience by learning more about music that the PSO performs and about the orchestra itself. In addition to the pre-concert talks that immediately precede Sunday Classical Series concerts, the PSO offers a unique lecture series which is presented free of charge – Soundtracks.

PSO Music Director Rossen Milanov is available to give lectures at community venues, club meetings, and more. Please contact the PSO at info@princetonsymphony.org for more information.
