Edward T. Cone Concert

with Angel Blue
Richardson Auditorium
3pm Pre-Concert Talk before Sunday's Performance

Angel Blue will appear as soloist at this weekend's concerts in place of Pretty Yende who has withdrawn due to illness. Angel Blue reprised her Grammy Award-winning role as Bess in Gershwin's Porgy and Bess at the Met in 2021, immediately following her triumphant appearance in the Met's historic, 2021-22 season-opening production of Fire Shut Up In My Bones.

We are honored to present the Edward T. Cone Concert as an annual tribute to the memory of this remarkable and generous man and his exceptional role in sustaining and guiding the development of the Princeton Symphony Orchestra from its inception.
