How to Write a Song, a concert of new songs

Tue, 4/19 · 4:30 pm5:30 pm EDT · Frist Film/Performance Theatre

Lewis Center for the Arts' Princeton Atelier

Princeton students perform a concert of original new songs with music and lyrics written over the past semester as part of the spring Princeton Atelier course “How to Write a Song,” taught by Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Paul Muldoon and Bridget Kearney of Lake Street Dive with a number of guest songwriters and music critics. In the class, small songwriting teams weekly created music and lyrics inspired by such emotionally charged themes as gratitude, revenge, desire, joy, remorse, loneliness, protest, and defiance.

This event is free and open to the public. No tickets required, however University students, faculty and staff will need to show their PUID at the door, and public guests will need to attest they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to the maximum extent, which now includes a COVID booster shot for all those eligible to receive it. All guests must wear a mask when indoors; musicians may be unmasked while performing. Public guests should enter Frist Campus Center from the entrance facing Washington Road.

Guests in need of access accommodations are invited to contact the Lewis Center at LewisCenter@princeton.edu at least one week prior to the event date.
