Princeton Symphony Orchestra Plays a Higher Percentage of New Music than SFS

Here's the 2013-14 classical series from the Princeton Symphony Orchestra of Princeton, NJ. (I'm amused that 3/4 of what they're playing on Spanish Night is by French composers, but c'est la vie.) Wish SFS managed 15% to 25% music by living composers instead of four pieces a year among dozens.
