The Princeton Festival is the premier summer program of the Princeton Symphony Orchestra (PSO), a 501(c)(3) non-profit arts organization based in Princeton, NJ. Since 2005, The Princeton Festival’s annual season has offered a multi-genre festival of the performing arts, including fully-staged operas, musical theater, jazz, chamber music, symphonic concerts, piano, organ and vocal recitals, dance, world music, and a piano competition. We also offer a free public lecture series prior to each season and engage students and adults alike through our intergenerational community programs.
We feature nationally-renowned professional artists as well as partnering with other New Jersey performing arts organizations. Our presentations have received critical praise in The New York Times, The Philadelphia Inquirer, Opera News, Opera Magazine, and New Jersey press. We are especially proud to have been awarded the coveted Citation of Excellence from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts in 2013.
