Gustavo Dudamel is PUC's first Artist-in-Residence
At the heart of Princeton University Concerts’ 125th Anniversary Season has been a series of concerts and events centered around PUC’s first Artist-in-Residence, conductor Gustavo Dudamel. Dudamel, currently the music director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, visited the Princeton campus three times throughout the 2018-19 season in his first extended University residency: in December, January, and April.
Four themes – Art & Social Change, Art & Faith, Art & Nature, and Art, Society, & Politics – were discussed in depth following each concert by prominent thinkers from a range of disciplines, with Maestro Dudamel as host. In addition to the curated concerts, Maestro Dudamel conducted the Princeton University Orchestra and Glee Club during his April visit.
