The Princeton University Orchestra (PUO) is the flagship symphony orchestra of Princeton University and is one of the most prestigious and highly-acclaimed collegiate orchestras in the country. At over one hundred and twenty undergraduate-musicians strong, we hold eight annual performances in Alexander Hall and tour internationally every other year. Since 1977, Maestro Michael J. Pratt has served as the Music Director for our ensemble. The upcoming 2020/21 season will mark Michael Pratt’s 43rd year with PUO.

Pending the University’s plan and guidelines for reopening the school, audition details and material will be posted in early to mid August.
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the rest of our 2019/20 season has been canceled. We look forward to returning to the stage as soon as possible!
