Princeton Symphony Orchestra’s Kenneth Bean, in his third season as assistant conductor, conducts Missy Mazzoli’s Violin Concerto featuring 2022 GRAMMY® Award-winning soloist Jennifer Koh and works by Felix Mendelssohn and Jean Sibelius. 

"Koh [...] strung silvery threads through a dense fabric of dark strings and darting flutes. Her slow-burning centerpiece cadenza was a searing highlight of the evening." – The Washington Post 
(review of Jennifer Koh's premiere performance of Missy Mazzoli's violin concerto)

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.

Due to the length and type of performance, this concert is not suitable for children under the age of 5.
