Founded in 2014, Opus 21 is dedicated to bringing an eclectic repertory of chamber music to Princeton University and beyond. Consisting of a select roster of undergraduate pianists and string players, Opus 21 presents innovative programming, embracing both traditional and contemporary repertoire. Members have performed as soloists with the top symphony orchestras in the United States, including the New York Philharmonic and the Philadelphia Orchestra, and have played chamber and orchestral music in the world's leading summer festivals and concert halls including Carnegie Hall, David Geffen Hall, and Alice Tully Hall. Opus 21 collaborated with the Orchestra of St. Luke's in the spring of 2017 for the Orchestra's first Young Artists Program, and as a result, received coachings from its members and performed to a sold out audience at the DiMenna Center in New York. Committed to new music, members of Opus 21 were invited to perform the North American premiere of composer Sam Wu's “dolphin song” at the 2015 APAP|NYC, the world's largest networking forum and marketplace for performing arts professionals. As cultural ambassadors, Opus 21 strives to broaden the public’s interest in chamber music and collaborate with other peer institutions and conservatories.
