The Princeton Festival Baroque Orchestra

June 21, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 8:40 pm

$30 - $35

The Princeton Festival Baroque Orchestra debuted in 2015 to wide acclaim and packed the halls in 2016. Hearing music of the 18th century and earlier played on instruments of that time has struck a chord with patrons. And it’s because period instruments produce a sound that is very different from what we hear from today’s orchestras – textures are lighter and more transparent. The strings have a distinctly different sound due to two predominant factors: the strings are made of catgut, as opposed to the steel strings of modern instruments; and the bows are arched and weighted towards the “frog” (the end of the bow held by the player) in contrast to the modern bow which is heavier and has a more equal distribution of weight along its length.

$15 student tickets may only be purchased by contacting the McCarter Theater ticket office by phone at 609-258-2787 or in person.
