Former PSO Assistant Conductor John Devlin talks about the new American canon which has expanded far beyond the standards of the American songbook. This Soundtracks talk is given in advance of An Evening with Sutton Foster, starring Sutton Foster with the Princeton Symphony Orchestra conducted by John Devlin.
John Devlin is an energetic force in the classical music world. He is an innovator of concert design, an ardent champion of American music, and a proponent of cross-genre collaborations. The newly appointed Music Director of the Wheeling Symphony Orchestra, Devlin is only the ninth conductor in its 90-year history to hold that title and, at 33, is one of the nation’s youngest music directors to lead a professional symphony orchestra.
PSO Soundtracks is presented in partnership with Princeton Public Library. The series is sponsored in the 2019-20 season by VelocIT.
