Princeton University Orchestra Presents

The Princeton University Orchestra presents Milan's legendary Teatro Alla Scala affiliate orchestra for young professionals, conducted by internationally renowned conductor Iván Fischer in a FREE (but ticketed) one-night-only guest appearance.

The touring Orchestra of the Accademia Teatro Alla Scala has played all over the world, with recent highlights including the Bolshoi Theatre (Moscow), Royal Opera House (Muscat), and La Fenice (Venice). Over its history, the Orchestra has been led by a long list of preeminent conductors including Zubin Mehta, Christoph Eschenbach, and Gustavo Dudamel; the ensemble has also collaborated with soloists from Lang Lang to Herbie Hancock.

Iván Fischer is the founder and music director of the Budapest Festival Orchestra, as well as music director of Berlin's Konzerthaus and Konzerthaus Orchestra. A frequent guest conductor of the Berlin Philharmonic, Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, New York Philharmonic, and Cleveland Orchestra, the Maestro has also received the Golden Medal Ward from the President of the Republic of Hungary, and the Crystal Award from the World Economic Forum for his services in promoting international cultural relations, among many other honors.
