Opening Celebration: A Conversation About Art, Education & Social Change in Latin America

Saturday, December 1, 2018, 8:00 PM Richardson Auditorium in Alexander Hall


Gustavo Dudamel's residency will launch with a public conversation between Maestro Dudamel and musicologist and Princeton alumnus Don Michael Randel. The pair will discuss the relationship between art, education, and social change in Latin America and beyond—a theme at the heart of Maestro Dudamel’s residency.

Dr. Randel was the Chair of the Board of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and has previously served as the president of The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the University of Chicago, among other prestigious positions.

This conversation will be followed by a musical celebration at 9PM with venerated Afro-Venezuelan folk music singer Betsayda Machado
