Dudamel to add Princeton University residency, with concerts, discussions, collaborations

Posted on: April 2, 2018

Gustavo Dudamel, music director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, will serve as artist in residence for 2018-19 at Princeton University Concerts in New Jersey. He will visit the Princeton campus three times during the season to curate three themed chamber concerts featuring ensembles from orchestras with which he is closely associated: the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and the Berlin Philharmonic. Each concert’s theme—Art & the Americas, Art & Faith, and Art & Nature—will be discussed following each concert by thinkers from a range of disciplines, with Dudamel as host. Dudamel will conduct the Princeton University Orchestra and Glee Club in two additional programs, including one with video projections by Venezuelan film director Alberto Arvelo. Dudamel will also participate in campus-wide interdisciplinary collaborations with Princeton’s Center for Human Values, the Woodrow Wilson School’s Center for Arts and Cultural Policy, and the Princeton University Art Museum, among others. The residency will also include educational events and a collaboration with Trenton Music Makers, a nearby El Sistema-inspired music education program.
