2014-15 Season

 

30th Anniversary Concert

 

Trinity Church, Princeton

Saturday, September 27, 2014 at 8:00PM

 

When The Princeton Singers was founded thirty years ago, it was the dream of a few devoted singers and founder, John Bertalot. Under the direction of Bertalot and current Artistic Director, Steven Sametz, with the help of friends, the Princeton community, and generations of talented singers, The Princeton Singers is now recognized as one of the premiere professional chamber choirs in the country.

 

To celebrate, Steven Sametz has chosen a program of wonders, dreams, and visions from the Renaissance, to new works created through The Princeton Singers’ active commissioning program. We are joined by returning alumni to present works by Stenhammar, Debussy, Verdalot, and featuring Whitacre’s Leonardo Dreams of His Flying Machine, a reprise of Sametz’s Dante’s Dream, and the premiere of a new work commemorating the thirtieth anniversary season by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Steven Stucky, Winter Stars.
