Princeton Symphony Orchestra Soundtracks Presents 'Epic Interpretations'

On Wednesday, January 30 at 7 pm, in partnership with the Princeton Public Library, Princeton Symphony Orchestra (PSO) presents "Epic Interpretations" a talk given by PSO Assistant Conductor Nell Flanders. Ms. Flanders discusses Beethoven's Fifth Symphony and other works, the musical interpretations of which can elicit intense emotional responses in critics and audiences alike. There will be a brief question and answer period following the presentation.

Nell Flanders has led performances with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra, the Chelsea Symphony, Mannes Orchestra, Peabody Symphony Orchestra, and the Riverside Orchestra, among others. During 2016-17 she served as cover conductor with the Peabody Opera Theater, a role she also filled with the Buffalo Philharmonic for part of their 2014-15 season. Deeply committed to educating the next generation of musicians and music lovers, Ms. Flanders leads the Symphony Orchestra at the Manhattan School of Music Precollege Division, and has previously taught at the University of Maryland, University of Chicago, Vandercook College of Music, and elsewhere. A graduate of the Oberlin Conservatory with a Bachelor of Music degree in violin performance and a minor in piano performance, Ms. Flanders received a Master of Music degree in orchestral conducting from the Mannes School of Music and is currently pursuing a doctoral degree in orchestral conducting with Marin Alsop at the Peabody Conservatory.

The presentation is an accompaniment to the PSO's BEETHOVEN'S FIFTH Edward T. Cone Concert featuring Beethoven's Symphony No. 5 and Brahm's Piano Concerto No. 1, performed by emerging star pianist Dominic Cheli. Tickets to the Saturday February 2, 8pm and Sunday February 3, 4pm performances are available at

Soundtracks takes place in the library's Community Room, and is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. Soundtracks is presented in partnership with the Princeton Public Library and made possible this season through the support of VelocIT.
