PUC Celebrates Princeton Pi Day with Family Concert

February 15, 2017

PRINCETON UNIVERSITY CONCERTS CELEBRATES PRINCETON PI DAY WITH FAMILY CONCERT
“Meet the Music: Albert & Wolfgang” Featuring The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center

The musicians of The Chamber Music Society (CMS) of Lincoln Center and host Bruce Adolphe return to Princeton on Pi Day Weekend in a family concert that honors Princeton’s own Albert Einstein, entitled “Meet the Music: Albert & Wolfgang.” On Saturday, March 11, 2017 at 1pm, the popular family program for kids ages 6-12 and their families returns by popular demand to Richardson Auditorium in Alexander Hall. Einstein once said, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s music is “so pure and beautiful that I see it as a reflection of the inner beauty of the universe.” In his day, Einstein performed Mozart sonatas on the violin and played chamber music with professional musicians all over the world. Come experience an adventure with Einstein and Mozart as Adolphe introduces the wonder of live chamber music performed by esteemed musicians from the CMS, in a fun narrative program, recommended for kids ages 6-12. The concert will feature works by Mozart interspersed with original compositions by Adolphe. Tickets only $5 kids/$10 adults, available at princetonuniversityconcerts.org, or by calling 609-258-9220.

Princeton University Concerts has again partnered with the Arts Council of Princeton to offer a complimentary ticket for this concert to all kids who register before 5pm on March 6, 2017 for the “Art of Luck” mini-camp, for children 5-10, taking place on Friday, March 17 from 9AM-3:30PM.

ABOUT MEET THE MUSIC
“Meet the Music” seeks to spark a life-long love of music that will begin the moment a child "meets the music" in person in Richardson Auditorium in Alexander Hall. Kids (suggested ages six and up) will embrace the joys of classical chamber music in this renowned program of The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, hosted by composer Bruce Adolphe, Director of Family Programs at CMSLC. A 21st Century embodiment of composer/educator Leonard Bernstein and comedian/performer Victor Borge, Adolphe makes the discovery—or rediscovery—of chamber music a hoot for the whole family.
