The chapel is located on the Princeton’s main campus next to Firestone Library and Washington Road. The Princeton University Chapel is the religious and ceremonial center for the University. Completed in 1928, it is the third largest university chapel in the world. The chapel is occasionally a venue for Princeton University Concerts, when the music we present is uplifted and exalted by the grandeur and acoustic of the space. Most recently, we presented the superb Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir in the Chapel during the 2016-2017 season.
Taplin is located on campus on the corner of Washington Road and Ivy Lane, situated next to the Lewis Library. The concert hall is on the second floor of Fine Hall. The hall seats 200 and is used primarily as a musical laboratory and performance space for the Department of Music.
Procter Hall is located in Princeton's Graduate College Probably the most admired part of Ralph Adams Cram's design for the Graduate College is Procter Hall, a grand dining hall clearly reminiscent of a medieval refectory. Upon entry into the hall, the awe-inspiring Seven Liberal Arts Window designed by William and Annie Lee Willet of Philadelphia takes center stage. Though not a traditional concert venue, the medieval design and the superb acoutsitcs will make it an ideal space to hear Gallicantus this season.
The new multi-building arts complex along Alexander Street and University Place on the south edge of campus, adjacent to McCarter Theater, will open in Fall 2017. The Center will house the Lewis Center for the Arts’ Programs in Dance, Music Theater, and Theater and the Princeton Atelier, and the Department of Music’s expansion of its instructional and research facilities in the New Music Building to supplement the Woolworth Center of Musical Studies. The complex houses the Wallace Dance Building and Theater, including the Hearst Dance Theater; the Arts Tower, which includes the Hurley Gallery, administrative offices and additional studios; and the New Music Building. The three buildings are connected at ground level by a Forum, an 8,000 square-foot open indoor gathering space that will serve as a lobby for the various arts venues in the complex and as an additional informal performance space. Above the Forum is an outdoor plaza with a reflecting pool. Skylights in the pool filter natural light into the Forum below. This season, we will open our PUC125: Performances Up Close Series on October 5, 2017 at 9:30PM The communal forum of the building will be transformed into a 17th-century pub when we presenting An Alehouse Session with Norwegian Baroque Ensemble Barokksolistene. Other events, such as Performers As Teachers workshops and Live Music Meditations, will also take place in Lee Family Music Performance and Rehearsal Room of The New Music Building. The University will celebrate the opening of the new complex with a multi-day Festival of the Arts on October 5 through 8 on the Princeton campus. For a complete schedule click here.
