Listen Up! Exhibit Opening June 9th

Princeton, NJ

Visual art and literary works inspired by Kevin Put's Contact will be on display during the 2024 Princeton Festival Family Day. 

The Listen Up! Program is an immersive musical and artistic experience for middle school-aged children. Students are invited to a special performance and workshop by the PSO, where they learn from the composer or conductor about the music and the creative process. They are then invited to respond to the concert through different creative mediums; poetry, writing, painting, collage, and more. These experiences are designed to help children access their creative impulses and foster their imaginations through artistic expression. 

This year’s Listen Up! art will showcase student responses to the March 9th concert featuring the Princeton Symphony Orchestra and Time For Three.
