In-Person Seating Available for Princeton Festival’s June Concerts of Baroque Music and Opera Arias

PRINCETON, NJ (May 10, 2021) – Baroque fans and lovers of great singing will have a chance to hear their favorite music in person at four concerts in this June’s Princeton Festival season.

 

Concertgoers may reserve their spaces via the Festival website (www.princetonfestival.org) or by calling (609) 759-1979. Festival officials caution, however, that seating is very limited and is likely to sell out quickly.

 

Each reservation will admit two people to a socially distanced outdoor space at the historic Morven Museum and Garden in Princeton. Audience members will bring their own blankets or chairs. In-person attendance at the live-streamed concerts was made possible by the easing of COVID-19 restrictions on public gatherings.

 

“We are thrilled to be able to bring audiences and artists face to face again,” said Gregory Geehern, the Festival’s Acting Artistic Director. “Virtual concerts are wonderful, and we will be offering eight of them this season, but there’s nothing like the electricity you get from having a live audience at a performance.”

 

In-person space is available at these live-streamed events:

·         June 8 and June 10: Two concerts of Baroque music on the theme of “Sacred and Profane,” performed by a chamber ensemble drawn from the period-instrument Princeton Festival Baroque Orchestra. The music, which will be different for each concert, includes works by such familiar names as Handel, Bach, and Vivaldi, plus intriguing pieces by Biber, Vitali, and other lesser-known masters.

·         June 13 and June 20: “Opera by Twilight,” two concerts of arias and ensembles, each featuring four highly regarded singers performing audience favorites from the 18th through the 20th centuries with piano accompaniment. Each concert features different repertoire and artists.

Concerts start at 7 pm, and will be held rain or shine.

Purchasers of in-person admission will also receive a digital pass to streamed performance. This allows them to watch the live-streamed concert in the comfort of their homes, should they not be able to attend, or play back a recording of the concert if they want to experience it again.

 

Full descriptions of the complete 17th season of the Princeton Festival, including those only available online, along with instructions for ordering tickets, are available on the Festival website.
