PRINCETON UNIVERSITY CONCERTS
2015-2016 SEASON SINGLE TICKETS NOW ON SALE
Single tickets to all Princeton University Concerts (“PUC”) are now on sale, including tickets to the all-new PUC125 series. Tickets are on sale exclusively online at princetonuniversityconcerts.org. Patrons will be able to buy tickets by phone and in person as of Tuesday, September 8, 2015.
Once again, the PUC audience can expect the season to be jam-packed with the most exciting and recognized of today’s performing artists. In addition to highly-anticipated performances by both new and returning revered soloists and established string quartets, celebrated independent artists—including violin superstar Christian Tetzlaff, Emmanuel Pahud, declared by The Guardian to be “the nearest thing we’ve had to a star flautist since James Galway,” and Tabea Zimmermann, regularly cited as the world’s greatest living violist—will make rare ensemble appearances.
Several new initiatives highlight PUC’s commitment to deepening the fully immersive aspect of chamber music. As well as introducing “Baby Got Bach,” a family concert geared toward children ages 3-6, PUC will also bring performances “up close.” Renowned violinist Isabelle Faust will perform in the round at the Princeton University Chapel, which will be specially lit to complement the luminous cycle of Bach’s complete violin sonatas and partitas. In the new series PUC125, concertgoers will be able to experience music more directly than ever before sitting on the Richardson stage of Alexander Hall alongside the performers, and more conveniently than ever before with each one-hour concert at both 6PM and 9PM. An unquestionably vibrant new generation of musicians, including virtuoso accordion player Julien Labro, and the Princeton-favorite Ébène String Quartet, will present music ranging from Renaissance to prepared piano to jazz. These concerts are the epitome of music without bounds. Events on the PUC125 series are only offered as single tickets at an unusually low price, just $25 for adults and $10 for students.
The 2015-2016 PUC season will consist of a total of 21 concerts, including two special events, six pairs of PUC125 events, and the Richardson Chamber Players series. Concertgoers are urged to buy their tickets early to ensure availability. On the heels of an unparalleled 2014-2015 season, the upcoming series promises to continue pushing the frontiers of the classical concert experience.
