Join our Guild

Princeton Festival Guild logo

The Guild, established in 2013, offers its members the opportunity to enjoy special social and cultural activities while supporting the Festival at auditions, performances, and special projects. In June 2014, the Guild organized a day-long intergenerational workshop for Porgy and Bess that included teens and an adult family member, primarily from the Trenton area. Titled "Interact with an American Opera Classic," the 57 workshop participants then attended the opening of Porgy & Bess and had a Q&A with principal artists afterwards.  

If you'd like to be involved in initiatives like this, or simply want to meet like-minded patrons of the arts, please join the Guild! For membership information, contact guild@princetonfestival.org.
