Princeton Symphony Orchestra to Present A VISIT WITH ROSSEN MILANOV & FRIENDS
The Princeton Symphony Orchestra invites patrons, subscribers, and members of the Greater Princeton community to be part of a couch-side, virtual gathering of music lovers on Sunday, May 31, 2020 at 4pm. Executive Director Marc Uys will host "At Home with the PSO: A Visit with Rossen Milanov & Friends" and mix lively conversations with musical surprises alongside Edward T. Cone Music Director Rossen Milanov. Special guests include violinist Daniel Rowland and cellist Maja Bogdanović, originally scheduled to perform with the PSO at the orchestra's canceled May concert. PSO concertmaster Basia Danilow will also drop by to talk about music and how she balances life at home.
The public is invited to "zoom along" and join in the fun, reminiscing about favorite PSO moments and asking questions of the featured speakers and performers. The event is free, but anyone who is interested should register in advance at www.princetonsymphony.org.
