Princeton Symphony Orchestra announces virtual concert in May


The Princeton Symphony Orchestra (PSO) will broadcast a virtual concert at 4 p.m. on May 23, with Jessie Montgomery’s “Strum” leading into Edward Elgar’s “Sospiri,” Op. 70, and Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s “Serenade for Strings in C Major,” Op. 48.

Montgomery’s Strum premiered in 2012 at the 15th annual Sphinx Competition. It interweaves melodies drawn from folk idioms with a spirit of dance and movement.Montgomery is a composer, violinist, educator and the winner of both the Sphinx Medal of Excellence and the ASCAP Foundation’s Leonard Bernstein Award. She was recently appointed to a three-year term as Mead Composer-in-Residence with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.

The remainder of the concert’s program is devoted to two master orchestrators in Elgar and Tchaikovsky.
