  • Founded in 1980 by Portia Sonnenfeld, the Princeton Symphony Orchestra has been hailed by critics as New Jersey's "virtuoso orchestra." Whether performing classical masterworks, introducing music by the most celebrated contemporary composers or delighting schoolchildren with their first orchestra experience, the PSO is regarded as a cultural centerpiece of the Princeton community and one of the state's finest musical organizations. The PSO was led for 22 years by Music Director Mark Laycock, who oversaw a period of artistic growth and achievement. In 2009, Rossen Milanov, a gifted and accomplished conductor, was appointed the PSO's third Music Director. The New Jersey State Council on the Arts recognizes the PSO as a Major Arts Organization and it is a multiple recipient of the council's Citation of Excellence. The PSO performs at beautiful Richardson Auditorium, a historic landmark on the campus of Princeton University.
