Keep the Music Going

Mar 16, 2020 | By Princeton University Concerts,
Keep the Music Going,

Our Dear Princeton University Concerts Family,

As we all begin to spend more and more time indoors, we can—as always—count on music's ability to fill and sustain our inner worlds. While we miss sharing live performances with you and are working on ways to remotely connect you with our artists and provide other curated experiences, including our Collective Listening Project on Spotify, we wanted to share an initial list of online live performances that you may enjoy in the meantime. We will continue to add to this list in the coming weeks, so if you stumble upon other resources, please use the comment section below to share them with us.

For fans of our Live Music Meditation series, Matthew Weiner from the Princeton University Office of Religious Life is offering free meditation instruction via Zoom every weekday. Join a 10-minute meditation every weekday except Thursday at 4PM EST at this link, and a 40-minute meditation every Thursday at 12:30PM EST at this link.

Thank you for playing your part (pun very much intended) in keeping our community safe. Please stay healthy, and keep those 20-second-classical-music-handwashing tunes going!

With optimism and gratitude,
Team Princeton University Concerts
