We are excited to have the Princeton Katzenjammers in Naples for an a cappella performance on May 29.  The undergrads are enjoying a few days in Florida after exams and before the start of Reunions.  

The Katzenjammers were founded in 1973 by Peter Urquhart '74 and Mimi Danly '74, the then-music directors of the Nassoons and the Tigerlilies, Princeton's oldest single-sex groups. With repertoire from Bach to the Beatles, the Katzenjammers quickly established themselves as not only the youngest, but the most versatile and musical group on campus. Their incredibly diverse repertoire and wide range of voices formed the basis of a new musical style, a completely different breed of a cappella in the midst of hundreds of single-sex groups nationwide.  For the last 45 years the Katzenjammers have been entertaining audiences with their depth of sound and wide range of repertoire.

This is a concert you will not want to miss!  Bring your friends and enjoy one of Princeton's treasures!

Tickets are FREE, but reservations are requested. Kindly RSVP directly with Trey Farmer '93 at (212) 300-5444 or treyfarmer@gmail.com.

11:30am: Mix and Mingle (Cash Bar)
12:00pm: Lunch 

“Reflections on Princeton: Music, Arts and More” with Professor Steven Mackey

Join your fellow Club members for the Annual Meeting. Great food, drink and camaraderie with your fellow Princetonians awaits! There will be a brief business meeting, including the election of Directors and Officers. A highlight of the Annual Meeting each year is the presentation by our dashing and debonair Alumni Schools Chairman, Clay Brooker P’91, of the Junior Book Awards to outstanding high school students from our area. We are also thrilled to welcome Princeton Professor & Grammy Winner Steven Mackey.  Mackey is currently Professor of Music and former chair of the Department of Music at Princeton University, where he has been a member of the faculty since 1985. Helping to shape the next generation of composers and musicians, he teaches composition, theory, twentieth century music, improvisation, and a variety of special topics. He regularly coaches and conducts new work by student composers, as well as 20th-century classics. He was the recipient of Princeton University’s first Distinguished Teaching Award in 1991.  The composer’s numerous honors and awards include a Grammy, several awards from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, a Guggenheim Fellowship, the Stoeger Prize from the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, and a Kennedy Center Friedheim Award. He has also been the composer-in-residence at major music festivals such as Tanglewood, Aspen and the Holland Festival.

There are a dozen CDs devoted exclusively to Mackey’s music and many others that contain individual works. Dreamhouse (2010) and Lonely Motel: Music from Slide (2011) were each nominated for four Grammy awards, and Lonely Motel, performed by Mackey, vocalist Rinde Eckert, and groundbreaking contemporary sextet Eighth Blackbird, won the Grammy for Best Small Ensemble Performance. Another Eckert collaboration, Mackey’s opera/monodrama Ravenshead, is recorded on the Minmax label with the Paul Dresher Ensemble. Declared the Best New Opera of 1998 by USA Today, the piece has been performed nearly 100 times to date.  Born in 1956 to American parents stationed in Frankfurt, Germany, his first musical passion was playing the electric guitar in rock bands based in northern California. He blazed a trail in the 1980s and ‘90s by including the electric guitar and vernacular music influences in his classical concert music. He regularly performs his own work, including threeelectric guitar concertos and numerous solo and chamber works. He is also active as an improvising musician, and performs regularly with his band Big Farm.
