Voices of Princeton is currently pursuing a partnership with Princeton University’s Program for Community-Engaged Scholarship (ProCES) and Princeton University faculty directing their ‘Voces de la Diáspora’ Oral History Project. To learn more about this initiative, please see the latest news from Princeton University’s Department of Spanish and Portuguese.

As part of the Princeton Festival’s Juneteenth Celebration, the Princeton Symphony Orchestra invites guests to take part in an oral history project called “Let Freedom Ring.” Step inside an “antique phonebooth” recording studio, where you’ll be prompted to record your own reflections, thoughts, hopes, and dreams for a better America. PSO will take sound bites from the recordings to create and commission a new piece of music celebrating Black voices.

Please email to discuss your project.
