The Princeton Singers – Love Is In the Air

Friday, March 01, 2024 @ 7:30pm



Grunin Center
1 College Drive, Toms River, NJ 08754

The Princeton Singers celebrate forty years of music making this season. Under the direction of conductor-composer Steven Sametz, The Princeton Singers has presented programs from medieval chant to Renaissance masters, from Aboriginal ritual music to Igbe chanting and Arab-Andalusian muwashahat, headlining festivals in China, Great Britain, and the US. Their Christmas specials are a featured part of the holiday programming of the WWFM-Classical network.

The ensemble’s innovative programming is often on display at the Princeton University Art Museum, pairing Rothko paintings with music of György Ligeti, Jasper Johns with John Cage, Baroque German art with music of Heinrich Schütz, and Indian choral music with photography from India. Whatever the repertoire, the Singers have been hailed as “masterful choral singers” with a “rich vocal color” and “flowing choral tone.”

Committed to the creation of new choral music, The Princeton Singers serves as choir-in-residence at the biennial Lehigh University Summer Choral Composers Forum. Led by Artistic Director Steven Sametz, the ensemble premieres new works by up to 22 aspiring composers from around the globe in a week-long practicum. The Princeton Singers has commissioned Pulitzer Prize winners Aaron J. Kernis and Steven Stucky to create new works for them. Their most recent CD, To The Stars, features works by Steven Sametz.

The Princeton Singers served as Horger Artists-in-Residence at Lehigh University in the fall of 2021, presenting talks and recording new works by Lehigh student composers as part of their commitment to educational outreach.
