PSO Festival of Music and Art

Princeton Symphony Orchestra is teaming up with the Princeton University Art Museum to present the first-ever Festival of Music and Art. The festival, titled American Adventures, will be held on Saturday, October 1, from noon to 5 pm on the Princeton University Campus. It is part of PSO Bravo! education programs and is perfect for children ages 4 through 12. The whole family can experience two of Princeton's cultural treasures—the Princeton Symphony Orchestra and the Princeton University Art Museum.

The festival will showcase the PSO's first-ever family concert at Richardson Auditorium from 2:30 to 3:30 pm. PSO Music Director Rossen Milanov will introduce live orchestral music that is both kid-friendly and enjoyable for adults through American-themed works of Copland, Dvořák, Sousa and others.

Throughout the afternoon, across the campus at the Princeton University Art Museum, kids can explore the American art collections in a scavenger hunt and create their own art. The family art activites will take place both before and after the concert, from noon to 2 pm and from 4 to 5 pm. Refreshments will be served.

Concert tickets are $10 each. Admission to the art museum is free. For concert tickets, call the PSO at 609-497-0020 or download an order form here. Tickets may also be purchased online at and at the Richardson Auditoriam box office the day of the concert.
