"It is notable indeed for a small festival to take on an opera as ambitious as this, the first of Wagner’s mature works, and to perform it so credibly."
– Zachary Woolfe, The New York Times

Youth Chorus Workshop
Auditions on May 3rd

Thursday June 19 thru Saturday June 28 
Workshop 6-8:30pm on weekdays, 2-5pm Saturdays
Concert on Saturday June 28 at 7:30pm

We love choral singing, and we love creating opportunities for young artists in our area. This year, we're pleased to introduce a unique 10-day workshop for girls and boys in grades 6-12 that won't conflict with extended school calendars and won't tie up your entire day!

Under the guidance of Maestro Steven M. Fisher of the Keystone State Boychoir, students will develop their vocal skills by learning fun contemporary music ranging from Broadway to ABBA to gospel and more ... then sing in a formal concert alongside our adult chorus, too!

2014 Piano Competition – Apply online

Piano keysOur Piano Competition is entering its 7th year and attracts a high level of local, regional, and even a few international young artists. Competitors perform a piece selected from the repertoire list for their age group (except for the Open Class) or the Four-Hand category, and the adjudicators' comments on their performance are sent to their teacher following the competition. The preliminary rounds are attended by the public, free of charge, and the final round is a ticketed event. Please note these important dates–/p>

Please note the increased cash prizes for the Senior Artists (ages 16-18) and Open Class (under 25) categories this year, thanks to Jacobs Music! Also, the Teacher Endorsement requirement has been removed in order to simplify the registration process.

Gala News: We Rose Up Singin'!

Leona Mitchell receives awardThank you for coming out on April 5th in record numbers for a fun evening in support of the Festival, and a special thank you to the Gala Committee chaired by Susan Rhoda for their hard work in putting together this splendid event! Highlights of the evening included honoring Miss Leona Mitchell, a very active live auction MC'd by Porgy and Bess director Steven LaCosse, and the ever-popular Courtney Colletti Band who played requests at each table during dinner and brought everyone to the dance floor afterwards. Photos by David Crowe are available here.


We won the People's Choice Award for Opera!

People's ChoiceThanks to your votes, we've been named Favorite Opera Company in the 6th Annual JerseyArts.com People’s Choice Awards following a record-breaking 12,000 ballots cast!  A full list of awards can be found at jerseyarts.com/peopleschoice.

Of course, Princeton Festival patrons know we're much more than opera – we also offer jazz, chamber music, a cappella, world music, and piano, to name just a few of our eleven genres this season -- but we're very, very proud and grateful to be recognized for the quality of our opera!. Come see our Porgy and Bess this June to see for yourself!
