The Princeton University Orchestra Tours The Netherlands

    In the past season, the Princeton University Orchestra, established in 1896, and conductor Michael Pratt, celebrated a 35-year anniversary of working together. In those 35 years, the orchestra has grown into one of the best university orchestras in the United States. Audiences and critics on both sides of the Atlantic are enthusiastic about both the programming as well as the quality of performance. 

    Over the course of many years the orchestra has played a great variety of music. The variety is also expressed in the programme of the two concerts that will be given in Den Haag and in Amsterdam. The orchestra will explore both romantic and contemporary music with Aaron Copland’s El Salón México and Gilad Cohen’s Dragon mother, and will close the concert with the spectacular Symphony No. 10 by Dmitry Shostakovic.
