The Princeton Festival Offers Two Free Multi-Generational Programs On Opera in June

Workshops June 8 and 11; Performance With Backstage Tour June 16

How do you give young people an appreciation for the arts? You expose them early.
 
That’s what National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) research has shown, as detailed in an NEA report last year. NEA proved that young people who go to performances of, say, opera are far more likely to attend and enjoy such performances as adults.

Enter Music that Tells a Story: An Opera Experience, a free community engagement program from The Princeton Festival, created and administered by its Guild. Story introduces young people and adult family members, friends, or mentors to the art form.


  • “Fantastic & great mix of talk and demo.”
  • “Loved the live performances.”
  • “Great presenter.”
--2015 Story participants

Participants attend a workshop on opera history, singing, performance practices, etc., presented by Dr. Rochelle Ellis (lower right in photo above), a well-known voice teacher and University professor. They can choose from two sessions: Wednesday June 8 at 6:30pm at Princeton Public Library, or Saturday June 11 at 10am at Turning Point United Methodist Church (UMC) in Trenton.

On Thursday June 16 at 5:30pm they come to McCarter Theatre for a behind-the-scenes theater and backstage tour, then take their seats for the fully staged final dress rehearsal performance of Peter Grimes, this year’s Princeton Festival opera. 

 

“This program is a vital part of our mission to enrich our community through the performing arts,” said General and Artistic Director Richard Tang Yuk. “It brings opera to people who otherwise might never experience it.”
 
Signing up for Story is easy. Do it online or in person at Princeton Public Library, Princeton YWCA ESL program, Turning Point UMC, Trenton Children’s Chorus, Princeton Girlchoir, or Mercer County Big Brothers Big Sisters.

 

Opera In A Day


“Guided Opera Experience” For Teens – June 18 at 6pm


Opera in a Day, new for 2016, debuts Saturday June 18 at 6pm in the Matthews Theater at McCarter Theatre Center in Princeton.
 
The program gives teens and their family or mentors a concentrated but relaxed introduction to opera. It begins with a public lecture on the special qualities of Benjamin Britten's Peter Grimes by Scott Burnham (right), Princeton University's Scheide Professor of Music History and an award-winning teacher and writer.

Following Prof. Burnham's talk participants attend the opening night performance of the opera at 8pm, followed by a "Meet the Artists" reception. Admission is free, by invitation only.
 
At first glance Day might seem to be a single-day version of Music that Tells a Story, but where Story looks at opera's fascinating background and practices, Day focuses on its immediate impact.
 
Another difference can be seen in each program’s “bonus” experience. Story’s backstage tour lets participants see the nuts and bolts of presenting an opera. Day’s participants experience the excitement of opening night and the glamor of a reception for the artists.
 
The Princeton Festival is working with several organizations to assemble a group of program participants, both teens and adults, who will benefit from Opera in a Day. More information is available on our website.

Princeton Girlchoir Now Scheduling Auditions for 2016-2017 Season

Princeton Girlchoir (PGC) is now accepting audition appointments for the 2016-2017 season.  Any girl who will be entering grades 3-12 next fall is warmly welcomed.

The 2016-2017 season promises to be an exciting one, with concerts planned throughout the East Coast. The Performing Division choirs will also embark on a summer concert tour, with the location soon to be announced. Recent tours have taken the choirs to Hawaii, Colorado, Austria, the Czech Republic, and Trinidad in addition to this year’s trip to Ireland.

In addition to these performance opportunities, PGC offers a first-class music education to the choristers who participate in all six of their ensembles. Girls who have trained with PGC are regularly accepted into prestigious University music programs across the country. While most of PGC’s alumnae go on to successful careers outside of music, all benefit from the discipline, community, and female empowerment that has been the hallmark of Princeton Girlchoir for 25 years.

A strong desire to learn, a musical ear, and an eagerness to share music with others are key to a successful audition. Despite the many musical opportunities PGC offers during the year, the auditions remain low-key and enjoyable and no advance preparation is required. This year, girls will be asked to sing "Row, Row, Row Your Boat," along with some exercises that demonstrate their vocal range, and to complete a few musical challenges to help our music directors understand their current level of musical ability.

Auditions for new choristers are scheduled for June 4 and 11 at Princeton Day School, however, PGC will work with families who are unable to attend auditions on that date, to find an alternative. Interested choristers may also wish to attend Princeton Girlchoir’s Spring Concert Series on Friday, May 6, 7:00pm at Nassau Presbyterian Church in Princeton and on Saturday, May 7, 7:00pm at Princeton University Chapel, to hear the beautiful music showcased by all six ensembles of the Princeton Girlchoir. These performances promise to be events filled with wonder and radiance; a special delight to the audience. For concert and ticketing information, visit www.princetongirlchoir.org.

To schedule your audition and download an application, visit www.princetongirlchoir.org/join. For more information, please contact the Princeton Girlchoir office at 609-688-1888 or auditions@princetongirlchoir.org. You can also visit their website at www.princetongirlchoir.org

 

 
 
 
More About the Princeton Girlchoir
 
Where girls make powerful, graceful, and joyous music, and music makes powerful, graceful, and joyous girls.

The choir that Founder and Artistic Director Emeritus Jan Westrick started in 1989 as an after-school activity for a small number of girls interested in choral music has grown into the area's premier training and performance choir for over 260 girls aged 8 to 18. To date, Princeton Girlchoir's alumnae number more than 600 young women, many of whom continue to sing in their schools, churches, communities and on professional stages around the world.

Princeton Girlchoir presents a wide array of musical genres, conductors, and composers. While honing their musicianship, our choristers begin life-long friendships, enjoy professional performance opportunities, and travel the world.

We are a family of six choirs, beginning with third-graders and including girls through their high-school years. Choristers from towns throughout Central New Jersey and Eastern Pennsylvania come together each week from September through May to rehearse, and they perform some four to twenty concerts throughout the year, depending upon their choir level. Members of the Performing Division Choirs may also take part in the annual summer tour. 

The Princeton Girlchoir makes powerful, graceful and joyous music, and music makes powerful, graceful and joyous girls. We are dedicated to presenting extraordinary treble music while building artistry, confidence, and a life-long love of singing together.

Music major Stephanie Leotsakos shares that her "program includes works by nine different composers in seven different languages, resonating with my heritage and exposing me to a diverse solo repertoire with many different vocal challenges. However, through the poetry and music of these pieces as I discovered them, I discovered that they may have something in common. I believe much of my program expresses the mysteries and complexities of love and nature, often in tandem with each other. Thus, I was inspired to include in the program an original piece of my own as well that draws from these themes but fascinates nature and love beyond the earthly realm."
 
PROGRAM:
Works by Hugo Wolf, Richard Strauss, Claude Debussy, Maurice Ravel, Samuel Barber,Carlos Guastavino, W. A. Mozart, Sergei RachmaninoffGiacomo Puccini, and Stephanie Leotsakos.

ArtWorks Announces Family Art Making Day This Weekend and Next

TRENTON, N.J. – April 27, 2016 – Artworks invites families to bring their children out this Saturday and next for Art Making Day, at three locations in the Trenton area. Candle art, printmaking, collage, drawing and painting are some to the activities taking place. Children can make art to hang at the 10th anniversary Art All Night, coming up on June 18-19, or just participate in fun and creative activities. All materials and activities are free.

 

Family Art Making Day will take place this Saturday, April 30 at Artworks’ 19 Everett Alley galleries in Trenton, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Next Saturday, May 7, Art Making Day will take place at two locations from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.: the Boys & Girls Clubs’ Spruce Street Community Center at 1040 Spruce Street in Lawrenceville; and the New Jersey State Museum at 205 West State Street in Trenton. In addition to Artworks partners Boys & Girls Clubs of Mercer County and the New Jersey State Museum, Art Making Day is a partnership with the I Am Trenton Community Foundation and Jerry’s Artarama of Lawrenceville.

 

“For years Art Making Day has given kids the ability to create a piece of art for free, to hang at our wildly popular Art All Night event,” said Artworks Executive Director Lauren Otis. “Last year, we had over 500 children at Artworks for Art Making Day, so this year we’ve expanded to two new partner locations on a second Saturday. This gives families the maximum opportunity to take advantage of this great, free program,” he said.
