The Princeton Symphony Orchestra (PSO), widely regarded as one of the New Jersey’s finest arts organizations, is a highly successful, professional, per-service orchestra. The PSO presents a six-program classical series at Richardson Auditorium in Princeton as well as pops, holiday, and education concerts, a chamber music series throughout Central New Jersey, a series of lectures and events for the community, and robust education programs reaching over 10,000 students annually. This is an exciting time of growth for the PSO: the organization has recently merged with the Princeton Festival, a June performing arts festival, and in 2020, began a new partnership with the Youth Orchestra of Central Jersey (YOCJ).
The PSO has proudly remained vital throughout the pandemic, delivering much of our standard programming virtually while also exploring new initiatives.
