INFORMATION FOR GUESTS OF CLASSICAL DISCOVERIES

Occasionally Classical Discoveries and or Avant-Garde Edition invites composers for live interviews as well as performers or ensembles of lesser known repertoire. The performers of standard repertoire will be not consider.

Depending on amount of recorded material, interviews can last between 1 to 3 hours. If a composer writes in different musical styles the interview might be split between the regular program and the Avant-Garde Edition (when possible).

Guests are asked to provide their cell phone number to the host, in case of an emergency, and arrive to WPRB Studio about 30-40 minutes before interview.

Do not contact Marvin Rosen via e-mail on the day of scheduled interview. You will be provided with additional phone numbers.

DRIVING DIRRECTIONS

Suggested way to travel from New York is by New Jersey Transit, since extreme car traffic at this time of day causes guests to arrive late.

BY CAR:

From the NORTH/NEW YORK CITY
Take the New Jersey Turnpike south to Exit 9 (New Brunswick). After the toll booths, take the first right turn onto the ramp for Route 18 north. Soon after you enter Route 18, take the left side of a fork in the road, staying in the right lane. Immediately bear right for an exit to U.S. Route 1 south/Trenton. Drive south on Route 1 for about 18 miles to the Washington Road exit, which is a traffic circle. Take the first right off the circle (gas station on the right - at this point you will see 3 traffic lights close together) toward Princeton. The campus is located approximately a mile straight ahead. See directions to South Guard Gate below for further details.

From the WEST
Drive east on Interstate 78 into New Jersey. Exit onto southbound Interstate 287 (toward Somerville). Follow signs for Routes 202/206 south. Drive south on 202 for a short distance and then follow signs to 206 south, which will take you around a traffic circle. Go south on 206 for about 18 miles to Nassau Street (Route 27) in the center of Princeton. Turn left onto Nassau Street, and follow it to the third traffic light. Turn right onto Washington Road. See directions to South Guard Gate below for further details.

From the SOUTH
If you are coming from southern New Jersey, we recommend that you take Interstate 295 north (instead of the New Jersey Turnpike). Take Exit 67 to Route 1 north. Travel about three miles north on Route 1 to the Washington Road exit, which is a traffic circle. Go three quarters of the way around the circle and turn right (gas station on the right - at this point you will see 3 traffic lights close together) toward Princeton. The campus is located approximately a mile straight ahead. See directions to South Guard Gate below for further details.

From the EAST
Take Interstate 195 west (toward Trenton) to the exit for Interstate 295 north. Drive seven miles to the exit for Route 1 north (exit 67). Travel about three miles north on Route 1 to the Washington Road exit, which is a traffic circle. Go three quarters of the way around the circle and turn right (gas station on the right - at this point you will see 3 traffic lights close together) toward Princeton. The campus is located approximately a mile straight ahead. See directions to South Guard Gate below for further details.

From the PHILADELPHIA AREA
Take Interstate 95 north into New Jersey and exit at Route 1 north (exit 67). Travel about three miles north on Route 1 to the Washington Road exit, which is a traffic circle. Go three quarters of the way around the circle and turn right (gas station on the right - at this point you will see 3 traffic lights close together) toward Princeton. The campus is located approximately a mile straight ahead. See directions to South Guard Gate below for further details.

Directions to South Guard Gate:

At the next traffic circle, go one half of the way around (continue on Elm Drive) and proceed to the South Guard Gate on the left. Ask for a Parking Permit.

BY TRAIN:

New Jersey Transit and Amtrak operate trains along the Northeast Corridor rail line that stop at Princeton Junction. Travelers can then transfer to a single-car train operated by New Jersey Transit, known locally as the "Dinky," for the five-minute ride to Princeton Station. The train station is located next to West Garage and Baker Rink. From this location, it is a 5 minute walk to WPRB (see map below).

Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority Travelers from central Philadelphia may take the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA), R7 line, to Trenton, NJ Riders must then transfer to New Jersey Transit's Northeast Corridor line to Princeton Junction and transfer to the "Dinky" to Princeton (see above).

Most times the guest will be picked up by car from Princeton Junction, if not, more direction will be provided.
